    Agreed!!! I've waited 40+ years for a big TOS 'E' to become available that looked and felt as good as this kit does!! Now seems to be a good time for those of us wanting in our possession outstanding kits of those iconic vehicals, both fact & finction that I've known from my wee youth.

      G'day Dave,

      Was about to order the rest of the bits for my Skipjack (SD, Adf2, wts n foam kit) and was wondering does the SD come with drive dogbone? and if not what size do I order? (I use the Raboesch type uni's on my CGN's...unfamiliar with this type)

      Cheers Bruce

        No. The Dumas dog-bone (cut in half and with an aluminum drive shaft inserted between the halves) and a 3/16" bore coupler (for the SD side of the universal) -- you gotta buy them. Here:

            Here's my Silly question for the day! Are the fittings in the Fittings kit pre tapped for the screws? Or do I needed to find a 4-40 tap to do em? (and are they all same size??)

            Cheers Bruce
