    Nice try David but we both know that’s bollocks.......YOU JUST AIRBRUSHED THOSE STITCHES........……so all of us would feel bad that we were harassing you with questions about the delivery of our orders ….......good red shading on the stitches too man congrats ALMOST like the real stuff.

    Grtz,

        Almost two year old thread, time to breath some life into it. I've assembled and trimmed the movie SEAVIEW and will be running it at our first show of the year, at the local JCC outdoor pool for the big Israel Fest.

          David,
          I do not see bow planes like you have used in the past. Are you planing on adding some in?
          If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

            I'm doing the maiden run of this model this morning at the local diver training pool. No, I won't make the bow planes on this 'movie' SEAVIEW practical. I'm counting on the low pressure at the bottom of the stern to solve the 'pitch down' problem encountered on this design. So, only stern planes and sail planes as active means of pitch and depth control. Film at eleven!

                This first pool run was without auxillery vanes in the nozzels. I was hoping the pressure differential across the stern would push the nose up when cruising in submerged trim. Nope: the same dive-of-death each and every SEAVIEW I've assembled and operated has done without the vanes. So, on they go. Otherwise excellent turning radius, and the SD came back bone-dry. I could hold depth (barely) at a high bell, but when I slowed, it started to look like the first reel of the movie, 'Flight'. And I ain't rolling out of this.

                  I so appreciate your willing to create and see. Some ideas are hobby changing and others are not so much. The bigger part is you share honestly how it ran.
