This model is 41" long. No for'ard planes, but fast response to dive command, because rear planes are mounted behind the propeller. Only two servos required, rudder and rear planes. Ballast servo is already in the Sub-driver.

WOW!

This is SOME model. Every bit as good as an OTW, in my opinion. What a difference to the Metcalfe standard!

Lots of detail, plate lines, rivets, drain holes, it’s all there!
In particular, Andy has ensured the bulkheads are installed into the upper hull, so there will be no distortion.

The gel coat is solid, and the entire boat is resin rich, no crumbling when drilling. There was a little damage to the tail fin during shipping, but easily fixed. Perhaps a little more packaging around these parts would prevent this.

All the fittings are in excellent shape, and just need sanding and trimming.

The BEST part is, the top actually fits the bottom. In fact, its a little tight and needs some sanding to loosen it up a little.

Pesto (THE Ginger pest) is VERY impressed!

I like it! A nice boat! Can’t wait to see the T Class.
