  • Damaged Periscopes.

    Hello all,
    I was re-ballasting USS Scorpion (Revell Skipjack) as she was a little tail heavy. Now she has been a superb performing submarine and would benefit from a better skipper but I am all she has at the moment.
    As I was removing some of the ballast weight forward, I was careless and have now damaged her periscopes. They were the plastic ones from the kit.
    I had seen a while ago that there was someone making aluminium ones as a replacement. I can not seem to find them on the web anymore.
    Does somebody still make these?
