New Galathée Sub - ADX Models

Postby SOLO » Sat Feb 19, 2011 3:26 am

Hello Guys, and sorry for my English :oops:

It's always an emotional moment, opening a big box containing a model kit of submarine RC :)
But this time the symbolic dimension is there because it is the first model sold by Aurélien DOUX since the end of the company Lecma!

We were fortunate to discover a few days ago the range of our 2011 National craftsman and now includes a model as iconic as the Galatée;)

New topic devoted to assembly of the first submarine ADX Galatée, "a first then, is only ScaleSub!

The purpose of this subject is also to demonstrate that the Galatée is a model that can be mounted on a corner office with minimal equipment and in a relatively short time.
We'll see, by spending 1 hour a day to assemble the submarine, how long it will take to finish it :D

The contents of the box is always full, in fact, pump, motor, battery, cables and other linkages are present. The manual is detailed and makes assembly step of the model, note in passing that it is now stamped with the logo ADX Models :)

Image

And of course the beautiful CNC cut plate :P :P

Image

Well it was too tempting, so tonight I set up the main rack. Children's play and above all a pleasure to assemble, it must be said that the ultra fine cutting CNC provides exceptional precision.

Parts are detached from the main plate, they are deburred and sanded.

Image

One hour for this first part, cutting parts, tightening the screws :mrgreen:

See you :P
Regards
Laurent

Very nice kit. I like the Galathee.
But I had not noticed Lecma is gone...

Looking forward to your build !

Hi Matt, Hi Ronald,

Lecma society no longer exists in almost a year now and it ADX Models (Aurélien Doux) which incorporates the production and marketing models for 1/100 Typhon and Galathée.

Hi,
1 day/1 hour, here after making the Galathée from 2 hours devoted to assembly of the submarine ;)

Begin the back by cutting and sanding the PVC cones.

Image

Then it prepares the cap back on fixing the stern tube.

Image

Image

The cone is now set to end cap to form the rear of the model.

Looks great. Are you going to be adding light and bit to it? Also what type of seal is used for the prop shaft?

The Galathee uses a simmering (oil seal) pressed into the plastic endcap.

Houla... it was very long this time :D

But this afternoon was right to spend three hours on the Galatea and mount all the electronics. The radio is in place and everything is functional, remains to dive into the tub to check the tightness of the model.
We'll see tomorrow;)

In the meantime, some pictures ...
