    WOW!

    David, thank you for such kind words! I am sort of at a loss as to how to put all this into words. It means the world to this "Old-wrinkle-bag" to be accepted as a beginner to this wonderful world of RC Submarine builders! I feel very HONORED to be a part of this very challenging and rewarding hobby. My thanks to all of you for making it so special to this old fart! Life is short, and as we age these types of special times are to be cherished. Thank you so much.....

    David! I accept your most kind offer! I do no think Bob will mind at all... Thank you so much..

    Thanks to all you guys that have responded to this blog! There will be more to come and to learn!

        Rob,
        It is all about the learning and sharing. Glad you are joining us in this hobby. Look forward to learning from you.
        Peace,

          First of all I want to thank Tom for his kind words!

          Those of you that have been following this blog are aware that David Merriman is sending me one of his 2.5" SD. He has asked me to work it into one of my builds and do a WIP critique of the sub build as well as the SD performance. I guess my next question will be, does anyone have a problem with me using this same blog that I started "Surface Runner Submarine Setup" for this new build and any other Sub build project that I might have going? OR, do you think I need to start a new blog?

          Thank you all for your input!

          Rob

            That would ultimately be the Administrators bag, Bob Martin. But, he pretty much lets us play as we will in his sand-box. I assume Bob would be fine on how ever you wanted to manage your posts, Rob.

            (and I'm going to tattle, on Rob: he sent me some shots of current submarine model builds … and this guy has it bad!)

            It's taken about two weeks for the box I sent him to get to him, that accounts for the delay. Not him. The USPS is the hang-up of the moment.

              Hi David,

              Talk about me being into building!!:-)) I have seen some photos of what you do! WOW! No comparison!

              As to my blog that I have started. I think I would like to use what I have on this one and just put another tag on it and start from here. I would just like to make it a mesh mash of all kinds of builds! 3D printed Submarines, Kit Submarines, remodeling existing Submarines, WTC tight compartment builds, Sub Driver, and Modular Sub Drives. By doing this all my stuff would be in one place and easier to keep tract of.

              I would keep everything segregated, and use a heading as I go from one to another! What do you all think of that idea?

                Perfect! Too much structure spoils the soup!

                  Do what you want, it is your thread.That being said, for me, a WIP per build helps those following us find things easier. What I appreciate is you are willing to post, so as long as info is out there it can be found I suppose.
                  Peace,
                  Tom

                    Hi Tom,

                    I think I am hearing you correctly! You would rather see each type of build as a separate blog, rather than each build incorporated into one blog? After thinking about this a little more I see were there could be a problem if people had a questions about a certain project that it could get confusing!

                    I really like David and his way with words! After seeing some of his photos of his work, I see nothing BUT STRUCTURED perfection in what this man does. I do have a little time to think this through before I start another project, I just want to make sure what I do is right for this forum.

                    Thank you guys for all the input!

                    By the way Tom, does "Tom Servo" mean anything to you?

                      (dying to see Tom's face as he reads Rob's question … priceless!)

                      Recently, Rob, I started a thread which is a rather chaotic 'stream-of-conscience' mish-mash of current work; a sometimes narrated slide-show of work I'm doing day to day, titled, 'today's work'. Not the recommended model as to how one should present his work to an unsuspecting world.

                      Structured Perfection!? Me? if you could peer into my noggin (there be Dragons Here!) you would find one big David Cronenberg movie set!

                      But, yes, as Tom suggests, breaking your different subjects into dedicated threads would make following your work a more structured, easy to search resource for the great unwashed out there.

                        OK! Thank you David and Tom.

                        I do understand what you are saying and will break any new builds I do into separate blogs with dedicated headings.

                        So with that being said, I am going to give my 3D printed WTC deck a-wash system one more try, and continue on the build on this blog.

                        As you all know David has sent me a older style 2.5" SD for me to set up in a submarine build. This will be the blog title. "3D Printed Submarine Build with 2.5" Sub-Driver"

                              Tom,

                              Does this do anything for you? As per David, he said I needed to name my Robot "Tom Servo"
