    Hello there.
    Can any body please point me in the
    right direction, for a wtc to fit the 1/28 scale seaview.
    apart from it being 39" in length, i have no other measurments,
    untill it arrives.
    Has any one any info on the r/c ing of these beasts.
    any help would be great.
    thanks for looking.

    Depends on what you want the boat to do, John...for a water pump based ballast system, I'd suggest you buy a length of tube, ask Mark at MMB to make you up the end caps, and fit the cylinder out yourself.

    If you want a full blown piston tank system as in my Skipjack, then have a word with Ron Perrott, he'll make you a complete module same as mine

    Hi Richard.
    As there are so few of these around that have been, r/c d.
    I think that the easiest way forward, would, be to go dymanic, and ballast the deck just awash,
    This model i think would present best as a surface runner, so to speak.
    But untill i can get the diameter amidships i am just fishing round.
    It is a project ive had in mind for sometime.
    and as they can be had under £100. now is the time to make a start.
    Cheers John.W.

    Well then, all you'd really need would be a length of tube, two end caps and a tray inside the tube to mount the radio, batteries and motor upon. A length of tube will cost you around £10-15, depending on the diameter you need...a pair of end caps from Mark at MMB around £20-25, and a sheet of styrene about a fiver. And there you have the basic wtc for a dynamic dive boat. Add the prop shaft and watertight linkage exits, again from MMB, and you've got yourself a wtc for around £50 ish. Nice, cheap, and effective. A couple of days work should see it completed and ready to test in the bath.

    Hi.
    Having given the seaview project much thought,
    i am of a mind that it might prove too much of a challenge,so i am purchasing a robbe class 212 federal german sub. they look to have upped their game since the seawolf.
    So here goes nothing.
    When i get started, ill try and post a build sequence.
    Should be fun !!
    Thanks richard for the advice, it has helped me make up my mind.
    Cheers all. John.W.

    You're going to build the Robbe 212 John...I had the Steve Neill 212, a totally different beast.

    Have a look around Big Dave Welch's website, somewhere on there is a short piece of video and an explanation of how X tail rudders work, and how to get them to work in model size.
