1/64 Skate

Postby Rogue Sub » Sat Oct 08, 2011 10:21 am

Got an Australian present and started working on it tonight. Started by CA'n the parts together with tape holding it together. Then I started filling the seams. Next I will come back and fiberglass the two halves together.

Got all the appendages on and started fixing the aft torpedoes for correctness


The time honored tradition of making holes.. I hate it.

Kevin, Nice boat! You said it came from Australia. Can you tell us who and what and where? How big is it? Are you going to power it with your WTCs? So many questions. :D

Not sure I can answer that many w questions but here is a shot.

The boat was modeled by Garry Gray a few months ago in Australia.

It is over 3 ft atleast :) Didnt measure it yet as I wasnt really concerned.

Am I going to use my MCS. You bet that the whole point of the system. I am using the same one I am using in the ohio, sturgeon, marlin, 626 etc...

Yes, Ive been observing Gary Grays subs in the SCR over the years but I was not aware that he was offering any for sale. What caught my eye was his model of the Triton. Id like to have one of those.

I would love a Triton. Myself.
I can get you his info but you wont be able to buy one. I have been asked by multiple people already and the answer was no.

He said he just doesnt have the eye sight for it anymore... not sure he is going to come back. Perhaps when the 1/96 skate comes out. Sorry Mark.

Started cutting holes on the sail and continued to fix the rear end on this boat. I also found that the back end was to close together for a good fit up with the top. So, I went back and cut the back in two and wedged pieces from the top of the hull i cut out to fill the gaps. I have also started smoothing out the fit up on the top and on the sail. Marked out my sail placement as well.So far the hull fit up is looking much better.
