    I'm looking for new project, but there are restrictions on what I can build due to my ongoing health problems, plus the fact that I live in a first floor flat.

    Main ones are the size and weight of the finished model...a maximum length of 40", and as light as possible.

    Preferably an abs/styrene boat, although fibreglass would be ok, I'm pretty sure I can bribe my old mate Andy to do any hole cutting for me if it's needed.

    Preferably a single motor/single prop boat...this is due to financial restrictions at the moment.

    An X craft, Type XX1, a boomer...something like that.

    Have a look round in the back of your sheds and workshops and see if you have anything you'd be willing to sell me.

    Thanks chaps...

    What about the Moebius Skipjack coming out this month?
    from Caswell
    or
    Tower Hobbies

    It looks like it will be a fun one to play with.
    Peace,
    Tom

    Already checked that one out, Tom...by the time I get it here, it's going to be somewhat expensive.

    Thanks anyway..

    After I posted here, I went to Facebook Dive-In to model Submarines and I saw your posting about it. Day late.
    There is also the Revell Type VII 1/72 scale.
