      Hi Steve,

      The design and style will fit right in there with my Hunley! As to the size the overall finish length will be in the range of 28" to 30" with about a 5" beam at it's widest point. I will also be designing and building my own WTC for this project as well.

      I think the size will really be great for swimming pool operation! :-))

        And the setup in the stern will make for really great performance in an enclosed space like that. Good choice!

          Your BATSUB was a slightly modified HOLLAND-6. So, yes, that model will be a very tight turner.

              That's not based on the SS1, it's actually based on the HMS Holland 1, which the British licensed from the Electric Boat Company, much to John Holland's disgust. The British Holland boats were derived from the design used for US Plunger class, which were an improved Holland; longer and more powerful.

              They handle beautifully, the only scale military boat that will out turn one is a Seehund.

                PLEASE NOTE: Based on the information that i received from Andy (subculture) (above) I will be posting my build on a new blog with the correct boat and name!

                SORRY FOR THE ERROR ON MY PART! :-((

                  I’ve read that the HMS Holland 1 was licensed through Holland himself, and Electric Boat. But, I can’t find any references to Holland being upset about it. Can you site your source?

                        Very interesting material jphatton! I have moved my build to a different blog HMS Holloand 1.

                        Thank you very much for posting this great information on the Holland boats!
