Why are vital details like flood vents etc not generally included in commercial submarine kits?
Or am I just buying the wrong kits?
I have bought over a dozen sub kits in my life and in none of them are the details that make a submarine a submarine anywhere to be seen.
Take modern subs. I bought Dragon's kits that came out with the movie, "The Hunt for Red October". None of these subs had flood vents or anchors. I assume that modern subs still have them. I have Greg Sharpe's excellent SKIPJACK blueprints that clearly show them. But none of these kits had any detail on their ventral surface.
I bought a resin kit of SKIPJACK in 350. Still no detail on the underside.
I am not a rivet counter but please --- . A submarine can't sink without these things.
