It's been years since I've been here at the Sub Committee, but wanted to come back and explore a possible new kit, which I'm sure many of you have discussed at length before.
My company Custom Replicas has been successful for years with our 66" movie Nautilus and feel it's time to expand our product line a bit. I'm here to ask for opinions on large scale kits, primary the H. L. Hunley submarine. Bob Martin and I have been debating this subject for some time now and feel it is a worthy historical sub that might be popular here with members, if offered in say 1/12 scale, as both static and R/C types.
I have seen many of the smaller kits and the beautiful 1/24 cutaway by Cottage Industries. Therefore, we would want to offer a finely detailed kit in a larger scale, so as not to directly compete. A larger scale to accommodate both details and room for W.T.C.s/etc. As one might expect, a fiberglass hull with zinc or white-metal, brass and/or machined exterior details, while using both metals and resins for any potential interior components, if we get to an interior version.
I'd like to invite any response and comments to our inquiry both here on the forum and at our e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Feel free to describe what you'd like to have included in a kit of this subject, as well as any other subjects that may be popular enough to deem production investment.
Thanks for your consideration,
