I'd like to see some close-up photos of the model. Would also like to see that the insides look like...especially as it appears to be a dynamic diving model (e.g. no ballast system).

That said, if this is done to the same level of quality as Graupner brings to their ARTR surface warships, could be a very nice boat.

A look inside would be nice.
It sounds like it has no operating planes either.
In the photo it looked like a power dive for sure.
Just preset the angle and full speed ahead! :mrgreen: BD.

BD, that was what I gathered too. She was really churning and burning in those images.
Warm regards,
