    Quite an interesting article on converting this kit to r/c. Produces a nice looking model (very good for pools etc) which can "almost" dive!

    The advent of the microbe sized servos and other devices now permits us to exploit the fine line of 1/144 and 1/350 sized plastic model kits out there.

    This is one of the bigger (longer) WTC's I've come up with. The length can be halved if you use just one battery and/or eliminate the ballast tank. Cylinder diameter is 1.25-inches.
