  • To many projects at the some time can be a pain

    Yea I just got to many projects going at the same time. IX D2, Gato, IJN SUB and a few other. I just don't have the time. I think I going to sell one of my side projects. I think I will sell my Robbe U47 kit. Let me google what they are selling in the US for before I post anything.

    Yea the IX D2 is coming along fine. It will be my first Big Sub. I done smaller Revell model into RC. But the IX D2 is 77 inch long. I got a late war conning tower and deck for it to. Oh yea i can tell you, Bob is 100% correct, RC submarine hobby is not cheap.

        Thats over 8 feet long. I have been 3d modeling the I-400 for 3D printing. I didnt like my first couple of tries at it. Sooner or later I will get it right. But its coming along, but I am only going for a 1/72 scale at over 6 foot long.

            This is the old Gato sub I am working on. Its a Engel Gato, 1/48. I had it shipped from the UK to the US, heavy and long as hell. The Dry hull needs some small repairs and I can fix it up as new.. I do have brand new Pistons tanks and electronic for it, however I have a tubed WTC coming for my Engel IX D2 sub that will also fit perfectly in this sub as well. I may just use one WTC for both of my large Engel subs.
