  • Trumpeter 1/144 Kilo, Missing Cradle and interconnects

    OK, I got a great deal on a beautiful Cylinder, and a full Trumpeter kit 1/144 Russian Kilo model, but no interconnects or cradle. I DO have the Brass Prop. tho.
    Who can I get the Missing components from??
    Am I the Only one here asking questions, Im starting to feel stupid!

    It would help immensely if you could let us know what cylinder you have, what is included and what is missing. "Missing components" is somewhat vague, as is "interconnects".

    Happy to help, but post a pic or provide a detailed list in order to get a good answer for you.

      To be honest, I dont know who made the cylinder, altho I have pics. Please excuse the terminology I have used, when I say interconnects, I mean the connections between the rudder, and other moving parts, and the shaft for the Propeller (the only thing I do have). The Cradle for the Cylinder, I think I have the right terminology for.
      My pics are too high resolution, but I will re-take them, and post.

        Pictures of unit, I can take more pics if required. I DO HAVE the propeller, and what I think is the lower sub cradle, but thats it

          Missing cradle? Kim are you going to build this one?
          Making a cradle for the WTC is not a hard task to do if you need to. Connecting your push rods to the rudder and planes is also an easy matter. If you are going to build this, will be glad to share ideas.
          If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

            Ys, I do plan on building this, but I have zero knowledge offitting connecting rods, and makingShafts for the Prop. Im also wondering how you place and glue the dive planes over brass rods, and keep everything straight
