a short time to trim the boat out and even when it has air entrapment under the deck it still submerges and runs very scale like under the surface. on the other hand i have NEVER been able to get my alpha to trim or run submerged at a scale speed
let alone keep the water out of the WTC, it has been so frustrating that my sub projects are now shelved and collecting dust.
my alpha hasnt seen water in over three years.I know some of you guys would meet this with crossed fingers but i have been working on a british DD by deans marine why? because i have been having fun with it. my ideas have been working out
in the constuction. with my alpha it was one compromise after another and wound up with a boat that never ran right.
Matt what ever happend to the 1/48 fleet boat project you had going a few years ago? i would have bought one in a second!!
The bigger nuke boats are better in 1/72 scale even 1/48!
WWII boats 1/48 and 1/32
i just hope some of the vendors do some boats in larger scales.
