Hi Guys,
I just wanted to show my progress on the Mini-R cylinder prototype for Steve Neills 212. The photo gives you and idea how it will look. So far so good!! :D BD.Image

So, how will it work? I notice the Robarts "can" in the right end of the wtc.

Hi Jim,
You can find and explanation ot the R system on my web site. Just click on my banner.
Here is another photo of the Mini-R and about 80% of the parts in various stages of construction. You can see a full size print showing Steve's 212 with the cylinder inside. BD.Image

Hi BD,

Just wondering about the overall dimensions, the way you normally break it down.

Mini R-RCABS System Components
ID end caps
OD o-rings
Lexan tube sections

Wondering about other application, because initially Steve was referring to the WTC set-up for the Kilo as possibly working in the U-212. Will it fit the Akula, or Seawolf, see were I am going with this. Working on Darrins 1:32 scale XXIII.

I really like the idea and have always been extremely satisfied with your Experimenters Kits, H$LL I have bought 3 of them. Just really excited about it. Between You and Crazy Ivan, I have to try the R-RCABS system.

Thanks, Rick

Hi Rick,
The OD for the large tubes is 2.5". The lengths are not set yet as I am still in the design stage. It will be as short as I can make it all fit. Only having the print to go by I want to make sure it will fit into Steve's hull. The Kilo cylinder would work maybe for a dynamic boat. Not enough bladder for the 212. The 1/32 XXIII would require a 3.0-R. The Mini-R may work in the Seawolf. That would have to be tested. BD.
