HI everybody!
Yesterday while probing the hobbyshop in Mount Lookout, I found a Russian Kilo class sub, nice large box from Trumpeter.
I picked it up and open the box(after I bought it!) and Behold.this baby is a nice size and deep & I have decided to make it a RC sub, I have most of it ready but I need advice on constructing a pressure hull and how you lay out the electronics in a sub, motor shaft and linkages going through the PH... I want to get this thing finished before May 17th but if not I can come there and take a ton of pictures and get a general idea from what I see.(I will also share these pictures with the group) AS you know I have a large surface group and I'm switching over to the submerged folks
so I'm thinking the sub setup won't be much different as surface dweller. I believe this Kilo will make a excellent sub, the rudder and bow planes I have setup and the propeller shaft I should have ready this afternoon, just need some "know-how" to keep this all dry inside.
I noticed it said 1/44 scale, this is not correct, it's a 1/144 scale which makes it smaller than most but still large enough for what I want to do.
