    Oh, and the new crew for the Hunley have signed on, their bags are packed ready, and they will be leaving town en route to their new home port tomorrow on the fast steam ship HMS Post Office. Stand by to receive them. That is all. Carry on.

    Thank you young Man,they will only get bread and water here.

    Hi Nigel,

    I have just been admiring your "ply plating" technique.

    You make it look very easy but we shall see!

    Thanks,

    David

    Lovely work Nigel, I too have been building a double ended dive tank based on the idea of a left and right hand pair of threaded rods connected at the hub of the final gear in the reduction drive for use in my Darnell based T Class. My problem was joining them exactly co-axially and in the end I had to resort to lathe cutting on a single bar stock between centres.

    Yours is, may I say, a very neat WTC and something to aspire to!

    Thank you kind sir, the only problem with this system is getting the balance exactly correct,I have accounted for this with a moving battery,as I do on most of my boats.

    I'll be interested to hear your impressions of your model in the water. As mentioned by Merriman, mine also tended to porpoise at anything but very slow speed. I also noted that mine doesn't turn in reverse very well.
