Yeah yer mad but I like it!
might be a small problem getting it to the scale water line!
have you thought of propulsion yet? 24V system.
makes my inprogress 1/30 model now look very small
Gantu I have drawings that seem to be ok according to the pictures I have seen over the years & in the I-400 book.

Fill in the spaces in between with foam and shape. Lay up fiberglass over the foam. Dig out or dissolve the foam with gasoline as necessary to install equipment or trim her for the right 'float'. Double the bulkheads at the 'break' points, use bolts to hold the three pieces together.
I would appreciate some pointers on where to get electronics & motors that would be big enough to move this beast! I don't care if it is fast, just needs to be able to sail out and "bring her about into the wind"...
A good scale for the sub would be 1:60 or 72 scale.
