      Not much water between keel and bottom. Clear water ... very scary!

          Its a very slightly sloped swimming pond. If you walk out 20 feet your only up to your mid thigh. Way out by the rope im sure its 5 or 6 feet.

            These video's were graciously taken by Mark Green, who is much more accomplished than I. Although the video's replicate much of which has been already posted, I thought you folks may still enjoy them non the less. : )

              If you look carefully in the second video, you can see the rotating radar aerial. Very realistic.

                Looks fantastic!!! I love the spinning radar & the clear water. I can only hope my boat looks & goes half as good.
                Cheers,
                Alec.

                  Thanks for saying so, Alec. I'm sure your model will turn out just fine, if not better. The Revell Gato already has much of the detail built into the model, and much much easier to trim out compared to the larger fiberglass hulls, IMO anyway.
                  Take your time, there's no rush. "Haste makes waist" is the the thought of the day. Plan your ojectives in advance, and the means to accomplish the task at hand would be my advise.
                  There's a lot a good information related to the Revell Gato conversion within those threads, which is nice.

                  Best of Luck,
                  Al,
