'Mother Russia' goes public...

Postby U-33 » Sun Jan 04, 2009 6:11 am

Here's a few pics of 'Mother Russia' as she is at the moment, still taped together, but it gives you an idea of what she looks like.

It's a Robbe Sea Wolf with a different sail, bow planes and loads of extra deck detail work. The sail and planes are borrowed from my Blueback and just screw on, when the Blueback is completed they will go back on to that boat.

Don't be too tough on me guys, ok?

Have you considered making up a new sail from plasticard? Wouldn't be difficult.

Here is a photo of a converted seawolf from France. You'd hardly think it was one unless you were told so.

interesting tail configuration, it looks like an X-tail. How does it work? Does it have an electronic mixer? What is that dome toward the back end of the boat? Inquiring minds need to know :)
There are OLD pilots and there are BOLD pilots but there are very few OLD BOLD pilots. MAG

Oh! I guess that it was an optical illusion. one of the pictures looked like an X-tail but the other three show that it is not. I spoke too soon :oops:

Suggest a change of glasses, Mr Greenman.... :lol: :lol:

There are two domes representing the radar/sonar domes...made from the ball from an empty under arm deoderant, they just pop out, and it was the ideal size. I just cut the ball in half and there were two perfect radar domes!

Dave, thank you for the kind words, much appreciated. I've seen those pics of the HFM Deep Dive before, makes an interesting conversion. Nicely done, sir!

I mist this one point it has no aft planes but a jet drive that has vectored thrust.
And they act as ailerons as well.
