    Yeah, I've got one here. Looks like going rate is $100. I'd do $85, but shipping is going to hurt going from FL to Canada... Hit me up via email if you're interested. bob@rc-sub.com

        Your better off buying the 1/72 Lindberg I-53 kit. Scale to the max?

            There are a few of those top of the line kits on sleazebay for sale. Prices reflect how seller pays buyer to take it off there hands.

            I-53 kit, Lindberg's answer to the Edsel!

            Introduction of that kit denotes that point in history when Hawk jumped the shark.

              Im using it for the excellently designed D. Merriman Cylinder Kit. What scale should that be?
              I thought that it was designed for the Mobius kit.

                They have to be pulling your leg. The Moebius/Revell Skipjack kit is an EXCELLENT kit while the Lindberg could have been. However, it has many wacky errors that require you do major surgery on it. If Bob has it grab it!
                If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                  The Lindberg I-53 is not wacky it is just misunderstood. It is just going through a midlife crisis.

                    LOL - I like that way of thinking. We have a build thread here by a wonderful man (Chris - aka oztruck) that I respect immensely, https://forum.rc-sub.com/forum/build...i-i-25-in-1-72

                    He turned a turd into a golden nugget of a submarine!
