    Control yoke

    Post  dgp1957 on Sun Apr 29, 2018 4:27 pm

    Hi folks been a while since I've been on the forum.
    I have a set of Mmb parts for a La class submarine.
    One of the issues that has had me stumped has been the control rods for stern planes and rudder, as the Sub has a central drive shift for the prop, how do you manage to have the control rods assembled around the shift?
    Also has anyone bought any parts from the rc-sub-workshop on eBay, they are in Hong Kong.

    Thanks I see the idea now, are those bought fittings, or made by yourself?

    I first make a brass master, pour a rubber tools around the master(s), then spin-cast white-metal parts.
