    Wow, interesting concept. I'm amazed how well that works, the ship's response is fast and powerful, looks awesome and does away with the entire dive system.

    Then again, only applicable to models with jet engines as in Sci-Fi ships or rockets. Would work nicely for something like a Space Shuttle etc but less so for actual submarine models.

      Hmm... that said, if you wanted superior maneuverability, this would work really well in almost any sub with either a pumpjet or shrouded prop. The only way to see that it wasn't scale would be to get right up behind the model and look into the shroud.

      I'll have to seriously consider this for my next boat with a shroud...

        Well, I'm sure you'll keep us posted if you go that route. Sounds intriguing.

        While not to scale, great maneuverability is a good thing to have particularly in small swimming pools.

        A Seehund that could turn on a dime? Wowse!
