Complete Kit, plus Radio, additional Electronics and fittings
Sale is for everything as one complete lot
What Sheerline say about their kit
The Akula is a “complete kit” by which we mean everything to complete this boat is in the box. This boat is designed to go together really quickly with the minimum of fuss and build time. It is moulded in the same top quality gel coat and glass fibre as our larger boats and is fully detailed with all hatch lines and tile pattern in the pre- coloured surface finish. All parts to complete this boat are supplied and machined ready to fit. All control surface holes are pre-drilled with the exception of the water inlet holes. The dive unit is already assembled for you and only requires the radio and speed controller to be fitted. This is an exceedingly easy boat to build, requiring only a few simple tools and is aimed at the modeller who wants to go from the workbench to the water in the minimum time.

Description of the Boat
The kit is partially assembled, the Eden WTC has all servos fitted, the ballast control CAM has been profiled and fitted, the Speed Controller and control plane servos have been fitted, the SPC-Pro1 has been attached to the WTC , connected through to the servo but the motor sensor connection have not been soldered. The r/c receiver has been fitted.
The Fibreglass hull has been drilled as per the Sheerline instructions, plus limbar holes have been opened.
The original control planes were fitted then removed to accommodate the more ‘scale’ look of the Engel supplied parts; this will require additional mouldings to be made to accommodate the scale components. The original Sheerline parts are still 100% serviceable and will be supplied along with the alternate Engel parts.
A complete book will be supplied that I have compiled which includes extensive background on the real submarine, printed images and other information printed off the internet.
The book has all supplied Sheerline, Engel, Robbe and AsTEC instructions, plus all original receipts.
I have files from the website I started when initially building the kit, the website is no longer active but I can supply the files if you would like to see and read exactly what you are buying. I can also provide images of the kit and parts as listed on request for now until I work out how to upload images on a post.
I need some realistic offers in British Pounds please.
I have no idea how much shipping would be for all this, we would need to work that out once a deal has been agreed.
I have not listed on ebay , as its full of submarine toy rubbish
I am based in central England, UK,
Many thanks for reading all of this
