What a piece of CRAP!! :roll:
I will give you $10 to take it off your hands. :D
Talk about over engineering!! It's not a NASA project it is a model sub!!
No wonder it took you four years to build it!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Could you please post some close up photos of the unique stern plane yoke. Never seen that done before. I think it’s too pretty to put in the acid YMCA water. Amazing work Mr. K. BD.

$10 the man said. I won't have to worry about my pretty sub if I get it in the pool before you put your acid in. :shock:
Thanks guys, and don't tell me it's a work of Art, he's been on my case too.
