D&E Miniatures WTC 3.5
Hey! This is the original water tight cylinder with adjustable ballast tank size for easy trimming (the new ones don't have this feature.) It also makes it a lot easier to move between models.
Only used once for the Alligator Junior model I built for the Discovery Science Channel movie "The Hunt for the Alligator - The US Navy's First Sub" so it's famous
There is no battery compartment. With this unit you mount a 12 v gel cell you can get at Batteries Plus for about $20 in the wet area of the model sub's hull.
Somewhere during the shipping back home from Washington DC where the movie was filmed I lost the push rods, but if you can solder you can make them easily in a few minutes. I'm just too lazy to make them for you. I'll make them for you for an extra $1000
