Well currently i just have the dumas Akula kit sub, which i am striving to add more realism to. I also dable around with targets. Currently im trying to build a race boat from scratch that is turning out pretty good. I also have started construction of a sea shadow from sratch. My problem is i have more hulls then i do electronics to run them:)
Im also intrested in builing a speed sub from scratch, but perhaps my eyes are bigger then my budget!

I read about the devils den that you guys posted and if you guys plan a get get together there im in. Besides i love camping.

As for your meet on nov 4, it would be awsome considering its a day after my b-day but im gonna be underwater at that point so i wont be able to attend, perhaps something sooner?

Kevin,
Could I encourage you to join the Sub Committee soon.
I'd like to add you to our list of members and perhaps call on your help for the Devil's Den event. These things can be a great success if we spread out the responsibilities in small pieces across multiple people. It goes so much better.
Let me know your plans.
Thanks
Michael

You can't go wrong hooking up with the SubCommittee and SubComDeepSouth. You will learn a lot about subs and better yet, you make a lot of cool friends who are just as goofy as you are about subs.

SubCommittee members George "Crazy Ivan" Protchenko and "Big Dave" Welch have done tons to trick out their Dumas Akulas both inside and outside. They have written up their projects in our four times per year magazine, the SubCommittee Report.

At the SubRegatta last weekend, I twisted George's arm :laugh: into doing an article about his "Reverse RCABS" ballast sytems he has in his Dumas Akula (See photo below). Dave Welch sells an upgrade kit to make the Dumas into a more scale looking sub model.

If you are interested - send me an email off line with your name and address and I will send you a sample of the magazine and a membership application!

Welcome to the elite hobby of RC submarines.
