NOw that's looking damn nice.
I'm building one as a static display, eventually in a diorama for the Sydney MOdel Boat Show. It's such a good, fun build that I've got another one to eventually convert to R/C but I'll be designing my own dive system.

Here's the, still unfinished static display Seaview which I've lit up a bit

I'll be watching your conversion with great interest. What dive system are you planning on using?

seaview

I am using Merriman's sub driver for the Seaview. Super well done. I also bought a extra kit in case I ran into a major problem but it just goes together great. David's/Caswell 's DVD is really great showing the conversion.
I love your light. May have to incorporate that in mine.

Well its in Dry Dock
I cannot say enough about the packing experience of Stringfly
8)

HE IS THE MAN!
Also his building skills are par excellent.
:D

I am forever indebted to Park for his gift of many items, including the DVDs that show how to build the unit, the fittings kit, and assembly linkages.

I am on a pension and I can only say that Park has been EXTREMELY GENEROUS.
:D

Really I am speechless...
Thanks from the bottom of the sea and my heart

You know I had the same problem with the cds on the Gato that I bought from Caswell. I complained and they sent me another set that was worse than the first. So I sent both sets back and told them to send me a set that works! I was told that they had a new supplier and that this should not happen again. Well the third set was quite good but you have to speak up! :D

What an amazing work of art the Sub Driver is with this build.
The CG is PERFECT. Incredible fit and balance. I cannot say enough about the experience of Stringfly. The build by Mr Merriman and the product are simply elegant. I will love getting a Gato together. The internet world out there who are listening. The Seaview kit from Caswell is a must buy. The DVD set a must have. Everything works PERFECT. Thanks Park, Mr Merriman and Mike Caswell for completing my dreams of a boy and on my birthday no less...how cool is that?
Cheers
