    Andy please...can you talk in the Queen's English? Remember that Rich is a beginner here, asking questions from a beginner's point of view...by all means add a reply, but keep it aimed at a beginner, not a master of physics.

    Totally different,nowhere near the same grunt,the blade form is not even nearly the same when you compare the two side by side,used to take those props of and replace them with waterscreews.

    Well just an update I recived a email from KMB and I should get the hull by this week so then I can start working on the lenght ect I need for the prop shaft and proplellers.

    I all bought a few other items so I can get cracking on the build

    Soldering kit as mine has gone ( blames brother)
    EPOXY RESIN GLUE ADHESIVE Mainly to constuct the wtc
    CLEAR 5MM PLASTIC ACRYLIC PERSPEX SHEET 210 X 297MM A4 x5
    Kavan Electric Gear Pump for dive system
    Some super super glue

    Till hull gets in my hands I will know alot more what I need

    As for the Norberts book I have made a start on it I get most of the book. Ideal if you are building a complete sratch build ie the hull I will use it alot and has some intresting idears in it so I will go on and complete it a few more times till is sinks in

    Thanks for all the help guys much needed
    Rich

    Rich,
    that is a brilliant book but please dont think that it is the be all and end all of how to build a submarine,even now days its largly trial and error and gut feeling,it is largly logical and not rocket science or some kind of black art,go with your gut feeling,and remember if it feels right looks right it usually is,and if it isn't you can allways change it.

    I noticed the book is alittle dated and their are a few idears from it like the Floation trials ( put hull in the bath add weight till it is at the lv you want then keep to that weight while building, to much and it will sink ect (page 18 p2 )just a rough idears on the end result.

    well a quick update

    A few parts have started to come thou know and I decided to get started on the rear dive planes....... Well I drilled thou for the brass rod and found out that it is solid their is only a few mm is rod able to be seen from inside the rear section. I have no idear if the rear planes are suppose to work ( thought they should really ) but their is no way of being able to get a push rod connection on to them at all. I have 2 choices really

    1 leave them as static just for show
    2 try and have the connections out side of the sub ( might look a bit odd thou )

    The hull it self is made very well but their are a few design floors with it thou, The center top half can not sit on the lower middle section. The wtc seal is about 1 mm thick each side of abolt. Due to the distance between the props their is no way of putting in a tubed wtc as their is a 80mm opening at the top to get a tube in and the props are 80mm wide center to center.

    Think I will enjoy doing this do love to put the old grey matter in to gear.

    Cheers rich

    Glad you got the rear vanes working- you will almost inevitably need them. (Bow planes are rather more optional.)

    Looking forward to the photos.

    Ok guys well cant find my camera so my phone will have to do



    I started to put a few bits together had to cut in the rear part of the sub to allow acces to beable to have working dive planes. I fixed 1 side down here just in case i needed to move any thing.


    2nd photo shows that the part dont fit that great to gether so I think I will be spending a few hours sanding down lol



    3rd one shows the complete planes took a while and cam out ok but some sanding will need to be done


    In side as you can see fitting hands in their is a massive no no, took a while and a lot of swearing but all fins work and I am very pleased 8)

    Will upload more later
