Seems like every time I think I'll make it, something else comes up.

Anyhow here is the latest effort.

Looking good!

I understand about not making the meet. This year was tough for everyone. We actually did not have our first meet until mid year!

Well you know where we will be if things change.

Hey Charlie, I hope to make it. Been busy on the new mold which is done now.

There is a bottom half mold and now a top half mold with lateral rakers/keels, so it should be a lot easier to make a hull. So if I make it to Church Lake, maybe I can bring a new hull?

Bring your new hull if you can; bring a surface runner if you don't have a sub.

I am/have invited some of my buddies from my old model boat club to our gathering and they said they might make it. Both of these guys fly r/c electric park flyers and both have boats. We will see what they bring. One guy has a camera on his plane and makes some good video. Would be interesting to see a strafing run shot on the subs...

Don't panic these guys if they bring a plane they are real sharp and a lot of fun.

Hope to see you there!

Tom,

That thing is really maneuverable! i bet most of the Nautilus guys wish their sub would turn like that! Great job!

Well,

You missed it guys! Great weather and some good guys meeting and sailing their models. I think this was the first time I had the only running sub at the lake. Here are a few shots of the fun!

Great shots. Any idea on how deep church lake is?

Great detail on that 4" sub.

The depth of the lake is unknown to me but I think Warren Wilson has measured it with his remote depth finder.

The devil is in the detail when building such a small model :D
