    I never even thought of that 'hand-of-God' thing while checking the field-of-view, and depth-of-field while the system was underwater. Leave it to a hard-core SF nut like you to dig out that old ST chestnut, Steve!

    Yeah. I missed a trick by not violently rocking the model back and forth at the end of the video.

    Here's a related video, just for you, pal: https://youtu.be/CxfA5d2L0BA

      Hi David,

      What’s the volume of the ballast tank that you used for the Bronco XXIII conversion? You probably had to take into account the weight of the camera assembly in the conning tower I imagine? Would you happen to recall the weight of the upper hull assembly above the waterline by any chance (minus the camera assembly that is)?

      Thanks,
      Nate

        Adjust the weight of the video equipment to roughly neutral buoyancy, and you'll know how much water you need to displace.

          Not planning to install video equipment in mine, just wanted to know the weight of the hull above the waterline, the hull looks to be made out of thin styrene so it shouldn't weight much I'm guessing?

              Good size boat. Plenty of room.

                HWSNBN Sir. I have seen that you have worked on some improved Fittings related to the 1/35 Bronco Type XXIII, not Video related But ALL other improvements. Would you consider making a set for me, I just found a Type XXIII locally and would like to make it Static R.C and have your improvements. Please let me know. Thanks fr your time.

                    I'm retired. These items will soon be available from Nautilus Drydocks, they got all the fittings kits masters and tooling.
