    I was interested to see this at the Blackpool Model Boat show.

    Looks very nice but it is does not dive and costs £630.

    Selling well apparently. ( The importer had just shifted 20 of them.)

    I wonder if this is because Robbe have discontinued their subs or maybe these will just be displayed on shelves?

    I don't know if anyone has modified them as static divers?

    (BTW the show had plenty of people attending but the traders were a little less evident.)

    I'm pretty sure that I read somewhere (I believe it might have been on the Mayhem forum) that at least one person had converted one of these into a dynamic dive boat. I did download the assembly instructions for this boat, but it's an Adobe document, and I can't figure out how to upload onto the forum.
