Always the guy that has to be the first one on the block with the new toy in the neighborhood I have acquired my first Engel kit.
I have worked with the Engel tanks, even built my own piston tanks, and helped others build Engel kits.
But this is the first one that is MINE MINE MINE!!!
I was on the email list for the new 212 kit and was contacted around Christmas time that the kit was just released.
The English manual was not ready yet but I ordered the kit as a X-Mas present too myself.
The English manual would be sent as a PDF through email around the middle of January. (And was)
Due to the Christmas season and a huge storm in Europe it took a while to get to my door. (Engel’s shipping is usually second to none)
But it arrived safely and packed very well.
I am about 2/3 of the way through the build now and really like the kit so far.
They did their homework and designed an easy to build and well made sub kit.
Having had two 212 hulls before I really like the way these hulls handle.
X-tail baby!!! The only way to fly underwater!!
The sub is built as a techrack type like the Engel Lafayette sub is designed.
The sub uses a bayonet ring to seal the inside against the evil water egression!!
My plan is to have the boat ready to test at out next fun run in March.
I will start posting photos of the build soon.
BTW-Color me Happy Happy Happy!!! BD.
