    This is the link for the AMS website. It does not change much because the information there is quite sound and has stood the test of time. Read the sections on:

    What sub to build
    Hull construction
    Dive systems 1&2

    all particularly useful. The photograph sections give you an idea of what subs already exist out there. (And also what does not exist - if you want a rather unique sub model)

    http://associationofmodelsubmariners.com/

    There is not much information on there about some increasingly common routes into the hobby:

    - purchasing a hull and fitting it out
    - purchasing a complete kit
    - modifying a plastic kit
    - refurbishing a submarine bought on eBay etc.

    For these you will need to look on the Forum or on other sites. "Build logs" are particularly useful.

    If you are a beginner, are short of dosh and you want to try scratch-building a submarine have a look at this thread which I've just started.

    If you are wanting to start in subs and are unable to easily get or purchase second hand 40MHz equipment you really ought to be also looking at the new openLRS gear on 458/459 Mhz.

    OK it is not exactly for use "straight out of the box and you will need a familiarity with computers BUT:

    - There are no experts yet so you are starting on the ground floor along with the rest of us.

    - The equipment is all brand new, cheap and available.


    Have a look at the thread on the topic.
