    Will these also be expoy resin like Matt's were and not the normal fiberglass resin? I have one of Matt's hulls already plan on making the Parche.

    Don't forget to acquire a set of 688 fairwater planes for the modified sail if you're building the final version of the P-boat. (I was the first ship's superintendent for the 683 when she transferred to Bangor in '94.)

        So the 683 has sail planes from a 688 class?

            Was there anything ambiguous to what I wrote?

              I replied to your PM but it may have timed out. If it didn't go through, let me know.

                Maybe, but I'm too pretty for jail. Sea stories aren't worth being made SUBSAFE by two guys who never wore fish.

                  I think that I will stay with what can be seen with the eye and model the sub that way. It wouldn't be nice to have some one from the FBI come to my home or find me at a run with the model and say can you come with me! At least this way that can't do any thing with me for building the model for what is vissble to everyone.

                    A good move for many reasons. As I said in my PM, anything else is pure speculation. It is better to go with something verifiable instead of wishful thinking by people with no Ocean Engineering experience.

                      I don't think the fairwater planes are like those on a 688 class, maybe closer to that of that on the Ohio's.

                      Just my thought here.

                        Here is a view of SSN 698 fairwater planes to compare to that of the Parche.

                          I also found this photo that shows a portion of the 100 foot section that was added to the Parche. Take note of the bottom side of the hull.

                            The ends of the fairwater planes were snipped slightly so they're flatter than the standard planes. I'm in final assembly of my 1980 Parche version in 1/72 scale for a commissioned build. During design, I changed the sail cap for multiple configurations. This version uses a Manuevering watch setup for the masts and antennas. There's even a bridge IC suitcase. The shot shown is prior to touch-up.

                            I ended up being the Ship's Superintendent when she arrived at Bangor in '94 and was fortunate to view the underbody on both versions. The second version is on my build list, but having the rear complete with the first version will make it much faster to build what I need. I created a (classified) digital model for some fancy renders for the program office a decade ago using great reference shots.

                            I have 90 keel blocks to sand and paint for the base. Hanging a security curtain around the sides of the hull would make a nice model detail without compromising anything.

                              Good looking work on display there.
