I have had several guys email me to see if I would be interested in providing a correction kit for the model. I really do not have the time to do this stuff anymore, but if there is enough interest, I might be able to get enough of the skilled guys together to help me out to get it done. Most have asked for correct bow, sail, scopes, propulsor shroud, propulsor, WTC mounting gear,linkages, and correct plans. Let me know if you are interested.

Interested.

All the cosmetic errors dont bother me that much. The WTC Stuff and the propulsor (which sucks big time on the kit) would be most interesting.

It is extremely fragile, extremely wrong, and the parts do not fit well.

Put me down for a new shroud (or a new PJP, if the internal struts are totally wrong). The propeller I should be able to build myself (so long as it isn't scimitar). The bow may not be impossible to fix, however. I'm going to try to reshape it using plastic stock and putty. I don't have any plans for R/C, however.

A package from Squadron was waiting for me tonight when I arrived home from work. My pre-ordered Seawolf!

It's a big boat, regardless of the inaccuracies, I'm looking forward to building it, and r/c'ing it.

:p Mine came today also, now I can finish my new WTC design and get this project rollin! Or floatin! I feel for the money spent, it ain't bad. So far it looks like it will accept my WTC and R/C up quite nicely. Dave. :D

Yeah, pity about the details but it is THE most
affordable hull for a newbie.
Let's be thankful about that.

just insert a bit of pipe (or get dave's WTC) and sail away.
This means the price of a dynamic diver is now down
to the cost of the RC equipment plus a few bucks.
