What's on everyones workbench-2009

Place for general submarine conversation

Just this week I finally finished the Thor Alfa that I started and quit on a few times in the past 2 years.It has navigation lites and beacon from Kevin McLeod,which are operated by one of the Scopes and the newest WTC that I really like from David Santivanez.The whole thing is held together with Caswells KLI-CON connecters and powered by a 12v LIPO battery inside the WTC. :wink:

TD the alfa looks great. I should have bought that sub last year. Are you going to Carmel this year?

Everything looks great,can`t wait to check them out.I`ve been thinking about doing another nuke but just don`t know which one to do.My neighbor was a cold war submariner and I would like to do one of the boats that he served on but every time he tells me I forget which ones they were!He just said 2 boomers and 3 fast attack boats.How is that big Gato of yours doing.

That looks like an OTW Hecht. A rare beast indeed.

Hi everyone,
I just got my Type XXI from Matt Thor 2 days ago and I am very happy with the boat and kit.It is very big :oops: I`m glad that I built a new bench for it.Just in the planning stages for now,but pictures will follow as soon as I can shoot them.

How are you doing Jim,haven`t seen much from you in a while.My Type XXI is still in the building shed and waiting for parts.The Germans built the prototype faster than mine is going together and all that they had to contend with was the destruction of the Third Reich and WWII!!!I can`t even send any pictures of the unfinished hull because I just bought a new computer and lost a lot of stuff in the change over.
