    Jim Horobin makes some bespoke WTC's and would be worth an inquiry.

    I don't know if he has a web site but he runs "A1 Down Under Models" and was an AMS member at one time. He also makes model ROPE.

    The only contact info I have is from an old business card :-
    phone/fax 01335370587
    email horobinward@aol

    He generally exhibits at events run by Mark from " A Model World" who may have further contact details.

    Hope this is of assistance.

    HI guys can anyone tell me the differences between R & R model engineer dive units and the subdriver units?
    Has anyone bought a subdriver unit?

    Davy,
    I use the Subdrivers a lot. Most of my subs have those in them. I do not have Ron's wtc.
    Differences sub-driver is one unit, using internal air to empty ballast tank until sub surfaces (SAS). Then the air is replaced once it is surfaced. It is a dynamic diving sub, meaning it is set up so that forward motion brings the sub under the water (yes it does have a ballast tank, but the strictest definition is it needs forward motion to dive). Ron's wtc is set up to be static, meaning it can go below the surface and does not need any forward motion to dive. It does not have a motor, you will need another water tight container for the motor. It uses pistons to dive.
    Both systems work.
    Peace,
    Tom
