    Hi all,

    As it says I'm afraid. Bought for me in haste and now repenting in leisure! It's too small for me!

    I have now ordered a 1:25 German Type XXIII from OTW that I intend to fix the Engle electronics/mechanics into. I have made a good few submarines over the years so it holds little fears for me to be honest.

    There is however now to dispose of the complete untouched hull with planes, plans, prop, stand, etc. The complete retracting front planes mechanism, the raising/retracting scopes/masts and a good few other brand new items (less most electronics and RC) that I will not be using. Extensive drawings and individual plans.

    Probably best a PM with e-mail address if interested as I can then send photos and a complete list.

    Best wishes.

    Just an 'add on' in that I have decided I don't need yet another submarine, I now include everything that came with the kit from Engle in the offer that makes a 100% complete and untouched model. All tanks, motors, wiring, electronics and a new and unused Futaba/Robbe 8 channel 40 MHtz transmitter, receiver, and both rc and 6 volt 8 Ah NMhd batteries.

    Actual cost in excess of £1400.00.

    Nearest offer to £950.00 buys.

    Feel free to post some photos, Peter. They always help to sell things. (I can post them for you if you are having trouble.)

    And let us know on here when you sell it.
