Hi Mark and folks

Finally got the time to open and review the kit Mamas sent me over the weekend. Had Mike Shubar from Mikes Subworks over for a visit and we discussed the build in depth. Will post pics of the kit if anyone is interested. Needs a lot of work as some of the molds appear to have been a bit worn so the body filler will need to be used in anger. Looking at possibly gaining access to the WTC from below rather than the upper deck given your experience with the upper deck flexing.

We even talked the possibility of having forward and after ballast tanks to tilt the sub like the show version. Maybe cast some vacuform versions of Sky 1 from the master resin positive once tidied up and built so we can use a couple of Estes rockets to launch a plastic version we don't care too much about into the wild blue yonder. Given the weight of the resin a vacuform version is more likely to actually fly :lol:

Anyway, must admit it is a daunting and time consuming task ahead.

Mark, you have the UFO Technical Manual don't you? I was looking at the great views and colouring they showed in that.

Cheers
Byron

Mike Shubar will be a great asset in the building of this Sub. Yes I do have the technical manuals from Amazon. Ive lately been working on the Oscar but will get back on her soon. All the best and please keep us posted.

One of my friends posted me this link with great photos from one of the original modelmakers:

Sorry Byron, nothing new. Been working on the Oscar lately, which reminds me that I need to update my builders thread post on it. Besides all the honey doos that I have , I have two other sub projects besides the Skydiver that I have been working on. How about you? Itll happen. :)

What is the deal with all this current ufo stuff in Ireland? People are constantly saying they saw a ufo. There is no evidence to support these claims. There are no aliens or ufos. All we have are these ridiculous accounts of what people "saw" and more often than not, it happens to be only one person who saw the ALLEGED ufo. Either there is nothing there or there is a logical explanation.

There is supposed to be a remake of UFO coming out this year. Maybe they should watch it to satisfy there need for it. :D
