    Robert, living in Buxton, Derbyshire. Retired, used to sail, been fling RC planes for years, just started with boats, always been fascinated by submarines. Thinking of building a surface runner, based on a WTC and possibly updating to diving later. Only have 2.4Ghz radio gear at present, so any change from surface would require finding a 27 or 40Mhz set. Will be looking for help with sources for some of the necessary hardware (waterproof connectors, bellows etc).

    Happy Christmas

    Hello everyone. My name is Greg.
    I joined The Association of Model Submarines because I wanted to find the right home for an Engel 1590-TAES Patrick Henry SSB 599 Serial #79974/79975 purchased in August of 2003 from Alexander Engel KG . This was purchased and belonged to my late brillant father-in-law Jack, assembled this running masterpiece. Jack passed away 10 years ago. It was one of his pride and joys and I want to do him right by getting it into the hands of someone who might enjoy it as much as he did. If I may ask for guidance from someone in the association on what it may be worth and how to advertise it for sale that would be humbling to our family. I have all the paperwork including original purchase receipt and build plans. I also have pictures I can share.

    Thanks everyone for your time and I look forward to hearing from someone as passionate for this sub as my father-in Law Jack.

    Kindest Regards,
    Greg

    Hi Greg,

    Where are you from (I'm in the UK), because this will determine how best to sell it? (If you want it to go to "good-home" it would probably be best to sell it on a specialist group rather than, say, eBay.)

    Hi Greg,

    You would be very welcome to post an ad in the For Sale section here but do stress that you are in the US. (The postal charges would be considerable to anywhere else in the world.)

    Also you may be best to post on the SubCommittee which is US based:

    http://www.subcommittee.com/

    I see that there is a "Sub Swap" section on their Forum but I don't know if that is available to non-members.(I am a member. Membership is not expensive though.)

    Tom may be able to give you some better guidance about the US position, if he sees this.

    David

    Greg,
    The subcommittee.com does have a for sale/swap area. It is not restricted, to my knowledge, to members only. So, you could post there as well. If you look around and decide to get into the hobby, membership is $10 USD.
    Peace,
    Tom

    Hi, I'm Martin.
    Been building planes and boats for quite a few years, just built a tiny dynamic diver the was produced as a free plan in Model Boats mag.
    To say I'm hooked is an understatement. Joined this forum so I could learn more about the subject because I'm in the process of rebuilding an old Sheerline type 7 for a mate of mine.

    Sheerline - lovely stuff!

    Try typing Sheerline (or even Darnell) in the search box to the left - that should give you a good start.

    Posting photos also helps people know what you are trying to do. (Let me know if you are having any problems with posting photos.)

    Good luck with a very absorbing hobby!

    David
