    Has Anyone Made a USN DSRV or Japanese One

    Post  george jure on Wed Jan 22, 2014 6:00 am

    Hello

    I was just wondering and looking through ALL the posts here but could not find anything about this so I posted the question.

    Has anyone built an R.C Static U.S.N DSRV or the Japanese version and while I`m at it the Russian version?

    I know FX in the U.S has the ALVIN and built a nice size DSRV for a customer BUT according to them, they were coming out with a DSRV for sale BUT I don`t think I will see one in my life time, it`s economics with FX for the delay.

    So has someone here built or planning on building one? What about some of the scientific versions from Japan or Russia for deep diving, it`s different, not too many out there, outside of Japan.

    Please let me know and Thanks for Reading this post.

    Mark DeAntonio and I talked about me working out the mechanics for his DSRV -- which had stunning detail -- about ten years ago. Nothing has transpired to date. Sorry. As you say, 'economics'. Five thrusters, four of them mixed. Man! that would have been a blast.

    Hi David

    Thanks for the bad news confirmation. I don`t know if you are aware but at FX, I believe his name is Marc, said the delay was because he was waiting on you for the prop details etc. He had a finished hull but made it sound like you were the hold up.

    News to me. But it would not be the first ball I dropped. Yes, Marc with a 'c'. Thanks for the correction.

    Hi David

    Thanks for the replies. How about letting me know what the size of your 1.25" S.D is with a ballast tank is for scale diving? ALL I am after is the compartment sizes: Engine room, Ballast tank, Battery and OAL. I want to try to convert a 1/350 Typhoon to Static diver.

    The ballast tank equipped 1.25" SD is still in development. It will be offered with the maximum sized ballast tank, suitable for the Revell 1/144 TYPHOON kit. It will be up to the owner to cut back on the cylinder to achieve the ballast tank volume correct for his particular model.



    About 15" long, but subject to change as I near freezing the design.

    Hi David

    Well your reply had me surprised, a Revell 1/144 Typhoon kit, I did a google search and found nothing. Can you show a source for one?

    As for the S.D Length o.k, dia. o.k. How about Engine room, ballast tank at max.?

    Thanks Again for the help.
