The propeller looks really small. Taking a dimension from Kemp's drawing, I presumed it was much bigger than it looks in your photos. I don't suppose anyone ever took a measurement of it?

Yes that's how I've seen them running. I think they ran that way to maximise the effectiveness of the control surfaces.

This can work in your favour if you're going with a single piston tank, as the bow dipping first as you fill the tank, will merely level out the boat for submerged trim.

Some pictures of other x-craft models. These pictures were taken by Ramesh (Wheelerdealer) at Norwich submarine day in 2008.

what about the other xcraft

Postby kielbasa » Wed Feb 04, 2009 12:22 am

does anyone out there have good pictures of the boat at Duxford, I know it is an x-51, and looks much different, but I have the OTW kit, and need some more info. I would love to go out and photograph it in really exacting detail, but I cant with my school schedule, not to mention, i live near Washington D.C..

thanks otherdave

I take it you have the John Lambert plans of that boat?
