RC Submarine Star Ship Enterprise.

Postby junglelord » Thu Mar 05, 2009 6:38 pm

I would like to make a rc submarine Star Ship Enterprise.
I was looking at the 1/350 model.
It would be a good candidate for pump-jet, or bilge pump.

I thank you for any advice in advance you could point to me in the goal of a RC Submarine Star Ship Enterprise.
Thanks Sub Committee
Dean.

Have you done a youtube search for that yet?
I dont know of anyone who has done it here but, from what I have seen on the net a pump based propulsion is the way to go with a ball nozzle for up down left and right. If you get the 08 SC regatta video from Kerry Addington you will see a piece that Rick Tesky is putting together for application in seaviews that would work perfect for you.

junglelord,
AFAIK those Japanese modelers used modified Kerosene pumps as propulsion units for the Enterprise.

Pretty cool stuff. I would like to see one at a regatta.

Junglelord here are some cool models that are good candidates for RC also.

The Nubian Starship from StarWars is very large and sleak.
i have one and will some day make it a sub and the same for the X Men ship.
