    Hello Sean and welcome

    Never had a T class so can't help with model details but you should find full size details across the water at the museum at Gosport.

    Best wishes with the rebuild and don't forget to take lots of photos.

    Hello Sean,
                          Welcome! I too am building a T class, doing the model as HM(S) Thrasher . Progress has been a bit slow over the past couple of years, it is slowly advancing and it is based on the Darnel hull though from MBD before they ceased production of subs. I did put a few posts of progress in the build logs when I started but did not keep up when the project stalled https://www.theassociationofmodelsubmariners.com/t1041-hms-thrasher.
                Are you keeping the original system? Mine uses a WTC rather than the Darnel system and maybe, just maybe, will go down the slip next year. I have found my molding to be very heavy, particularly the upper hull and have read of similar problems with a build on the subcommittee forum.
               I'm happy to share the little that I know ,

    I have not long finished a darnell  t class submarine, its first outing was norwich this year and it went well made a few upgrades to it at home.
    tried to down load a picture of it if you go to the norwich pictures you will find them there on a table in front of a van

    Hello Sean,
    I've been rummaging through a stack of my old model info and have found the Darnell installation layout and some basic guides for this T class hull, it's yours if you want it , just pm me an address to send it to,

    Welcome Sean!

    I did a revamp of an original Darnell Type XX1 and it's here:

    https://www.theassociationofmodelsubmariners.com/t1092-darnell-type-xx1-graham-s-dad-s-boat-for-refurbishment

    Please post some photos of what you have. That will help others to help you. (Let me know by pm if you are having trouble posting - it can be a little quirky!)
