    Spanish S-80 Class Submarine

    Starting a new build!

    This is the Spanish S-80 Class submarine that went into design and production between 2003 and 2010. The scale that I will be building it at is a little larger than 1:120 scale.

    It will work out to approximately 24" to 26" in length, and roughly a 3" beam. I will be building it (3D Printed) from PLA with a 100% infill. I will incorporate a 2" scratch built WTC.

    I have finished printing out the bottom sections of the hull.

    I also have the bow and the two stern sections completed as well.

    I have two other submarines in the building stages as well, so I will be working on the S-80 along with the (Seaview and the Stickleback)

    (Just can't get enough building)

      Tonight I am starting the hull glue up on my S-80.

      I have just a few more accessory parts yet to print out (rudders, dive planes, and some sail antenna) and I will be able to move this boat into production phase.

        Made a little more progress on the S-80 hull.

        I have the lower and upper hull sections glue together. I went a head and tapped the upper hull to the lower to get an idea as to how well they are going to come together.

        I am going to have to fabricate some tabs for both sections in order to get a good positive fit.

          After our Dive Tribe get together today (and David M.) great presentation on vacuforming, I went back to work on my S-80.

          I went into Tinkercad and designed and built the joint supports for the hull.

          I am also going to fabricate supports for the top hull sections.

            Ballast system or surface runner?
            Make it simple, make strong, make it work!

                Looks like you still got plenty of space in the WTC for a gear/peristaltic pump ballast system.
