Hi
I am selling my labour of love at last. Check out the link above. The boat comes up with a security message here, so if you get this look at the quayside instead. If in the UK contact me for pictures as the ebay browser will not allow military stuff anymore!

It is for sale with the quayside diaorama as seperate item.

The boat just needs some basic electrical knowledge. All bits and dive tube are ready. Needs battery and control rod connection to servos.

email me if you want more info.

Kind regards

More info on the Quayside for sale:
The crane is hand made from scratch, some scale railway parts, some scratch built. It has interior detail and diesel engine as well. Plus cable pullys.

All the vehicles and men are with the sale. Everything you see. Plus the radio room near the gun steps has full detail. I based it on the where eagle dare radio room with Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood. It also has a working light.

Characters in the medal ceremony are based on Das Boot, as is the whole keyside. The aircraft threat, the prostetute near the crane, the tired sailers in the truck, bomb damage near the security shed.

The sailers near the sand bags are playing cards, and the 2 sailers hugging behind the steps are brothers saying farewell. The 2 guys in the middle are talking to the captain on the U Boat tower.

The 2 on the lower steps left side are loading supplied by hand, as was done due to restrictions of space in the boat. The 2 sat on the steps right hand are eating and chatting.

All graphics is in German genuine typeface (something many get wrong).

The toilet behind the anti-air battery has a sailer shaving into a stained mirror. Behind is a blocked loo with stain water in. The urinals are stained yellow and slightly cracked.

The pier lower are dressed in car filler and painted with sea weed. Rusty water ouses out of the drain holes. The step rails are coated in caustic soda and painted to realistic rust deposits due to the sea water, the lower down the worse condition.

There is a single red air raid siron on one of the telegraph poles.

The road surface has been textured and worn/stained with use. The rails for the crane are rusty on the lower parts, shiny along the rubbed inner edge with the use and weight of the crane.


The vehicles have lots of extra modes, a bike frame and extra luggage rack, sand bags and folded canvas roof. The half track is the later version introduced 2 months before this scene is depicted, and has seen no action, hence good condition.

The staff car has a driver impatiently looking at his watch, not interested in the ceremony.

The brass band has been scratch built form seated troops and hand made hats and instruments added to accurate style and colour.

A vicar looks on awkwardly, feeling separate from what is going on.

Some chain and cardboard boxes with german writing (bread, wine, vegetables) lay hap hazard on the road.

Barbed wire runs along the rounded end of the pier, partly damaged and rusty.

More info on the U Boat for sale:
The conning tower has full interior detail and the hatch open with a tube decending inside.

The shark logo is painted so no hassle with decals coming of. All paints used are car acrylics and etching primer, oil paints for shading then matt acrylic sealer. No problem with water or fading.

The hull has a lot of space spare to add extra electronics such as sub leveler and sub safe. Sub safe is a simple electric valve that blows the tank to bring the boat to surface if the radio signal is lost or the battery runs out while under water.

The 6 channel Radio (good quality cost £150) will have 1 servo for rudder, 1 servo for front dive plane, 1 for back, channel for speed to the motor and 1 channel for the pump. This leave 1 channel for the sub leveler. This neat device costs about £35 and has a spirit level with it. It monitors the level of the boat while submerged, and controls the fore and aft dive planes to keep thing level.


The boat is about 20 kilo with the dive tube installed. I have a friend in Sheffield who has built an XI to the same scale. It weighs almost double that, and still floats and dives fine.

You will find on sea trails that you will need a lot of lead ballast in the keel. A boat over 6ft long displaces a lot of water volume. And imagine if this was in a bucket, how much it would weigh.

The fibreglass is normal thickness you would expect for strength and weigh being about 3mm average. The thickness you can see in the overhead shots of the lower hull is 10mm plastic strips bonded top and bottom of the hulls were they meet when bolted together. This creates a nice join and adds rigidity. I have seem most U Boat builders do this., and it holds the brass locating pins and holes you can see as well.

The bow is solid resin coming back to about 3 inches in. The stern about the same. The bow and stern dive plane holders and rudders holders are made from solid aluminium sheet, to withstand impacts from the river bank. A place where the full size boats had regular damage coming into harbour.

All holes are genuine drilled right through. And the hull has true side holes and bow stern holes. Also the upper hull along the top of the ballast tanks has true holes, most model boats miss this out.

Periscope slide, just need a cork bung to move when diving. Conning tower is hollow to aid stability.

Top and bottom hull halves are fibreglass, with chunky bolts x 2 to secure them together.

Dive tube self contained unit. Twin Grupner motors, servos and electric, pump ect all inside. All parts are standard and available from good model shops. Recommend 2 x 6v batteries for front to back balance.

If you need any more info please respond via email

Interesting.

Just a quick note - subs and RC gear for sale for sale posts belong on the "Sub Swap" forum of this site.

The advantage is that the posts don't get lost so quickly in a mass of other RC or General posts AND a lot of guys -myself included - track the Sub Swap forum waiting for good deals to pop up!

Hi
I am selling these models at last. After much heartache, they finally have to go. The boat and quayside got a Silver awards at the IPMS nationals in Birmingham 2002.

They are to a very good standard, and will display as a static, or the boat will sail as a radio control sub.

If you require further info or pics email me via ebay.

Kind regards
Julia
