    Alan,
    That is a vague statement. It is like me saying I want a truck. There would quickly come follow up questions, modern sub like a nuclear? WWII sub? Do you have a scale in mind?
    You could buy the Revell Skipjack and convert it or you can search eBay and find some there too!
    Another question is how much do you want to spend?

    I have two for sale at the moment,

    sheerline trafalgar submarine
    £400 ono

    video of it sailing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FR3gzMSuUPU
    will post some photos later.
    Looking for £400 ono.

    And a For sale Robbe U47 converted to engel static diving submarine.

    The u47 has had the Baynet fitting, tech rack fitted. this was a sailing model up to two months ago as ordered the upgraded deck with all the brass echings. I have started to fit the deck but having to sell this to found another model I always been after.
    These models are getting hard to get hold off and look good on the water.

    This will come with everything including batterys to get into the water except transmitter or receiver.

    This is a collection only (derby) sale but will be at Bornville Sub event on the 19 sep, so could be collected then.

    £500 ono
