    Ballast systems for 1/35 Bronco Type XXIII

    Post  Peter Webster on Sat Jan 09, 2016 5:10 am

    Can someone recommend to best ballast system for this sub as I have just got hold of a kit.
    I've been looking at the SubDriver s 2 1/2 inch unit but with the Aussie dollar the way it is at present these would be about
    $1000 (aust) by the time you add freight. Can any one suggest an alternative system ( I want static diving ability, not dynamic diving) or am I best to wait and order the SubDriver units.
    Thanks

    My commiserations about the state of the Aussie versus US Dollar! To help you in your decision I've just added a section on commercial WTC providers. Maybe you can find one in a country with a weak currency!?

    Also do a search on here for "Bronco". A few hits but mostly dynamic divers, I think.

    Or build your own?

    Let us know how you get on.
