    Boat internals, that is...this is another plastic kit converted to r/c, a Revell 214. It's a lot neater in it's layout than my Kilo...nice work, Roger!

    And for size comparision, this is the 214 alongside his R&R Resolution.

    The model is a dynamic diver, and has seperate control on fore planes, rear planes, motor speed, rudder and battery movement (which when under water is excellent for triming.)

    I didn't realise you could move the battery pack Roger...I've been sat here studying that picture and wondering what all those servos were for! Very clever...

    Hello Richard,

    I'm very keen to convert a static plastic sub kit into an rc model and I have been researching the ways to achieve this for some time. Your WTC set up above looks nice and straight forward; just what I'm after. The problem is that the subs in the larger scales of 1/144 don't really appeal to me, although the two German classes of 214 and 212 do have an attraction. What I really want is a classic US submarine with dive planes on the sail like a Sturgeon or LA class, and so 1/350 scale seems like the only option? Obviously there are the much bigger scales in fibre glass but I just don't have the funds for one of these; I could just about afford the hull kit but not the WTC and rc components. What I'm thinking of doing is finding the smallest micro/nano rc bits and pieces and cramming them into a 1/350 scale sub; I'm sure it's possible to do even though it would be very fiddly and a very tight fit! The WTC itself in this size is a concern and I'm not sure how to make a simple set up.

    Cheers
    Simon
