For Sale: OTW - "X51" British Midget Submarine, Hull Kit
Dimensions: 1/12 Scale, Length 54", Beam 6.75", from keel bottom to top of deck is 9".
This is a complete Hull only kit with all the hull parts as produced by OTW, (including a 3" brass prop, 4mm prop shaft, stuffing box, heavy duty U-joint) and very detailed plan sheets.
This sub kit was started by its first owner with very little work done to it. Most of the lumber holes have been cut out (neatly) and a few hatches, deck fittings, etc. have been glued on. In addition, a very nice custom made wood stand is included with the boat.
The hull of this boat is very detailed with rivets and panel weld lines molded in. The boat is big and robust with plenty of room for any kind of WTC and ballast system you choose to build for it (WTC supports are factory built into the hull).
