SCR article on large scale submarine

Postby Thor » Fri Jul 27, 2012 2:14 pm

All,

In the next issue of the SCR there will be an article on large scale r/C subs. If you have, or are building a large scale R/C sub, please send me pics and information asap! Any large boat in 1/32nd, 1/48th, 1/24th, or bigger is what I am looking for. I know there are getting to be more and more of these out there, so lets get them some press.

Please email me at matt@precisionpattern.biz

Thanks!

Matt

Matt,

....how about my 1/9th scale OTW Seehund with custom-built dive module? You can take photos, etc. of it at the SubRegatta. Same for my 1/24th scale Type XXIII and 1/32nd scale Type II......

I will hopefully have my 1/48 Icefish at the regatta which I am installing my new cylinder system in.
I built her about 17 years ago and pulled out the old technology and installed my newest WTC to show it can control a large boat like this as well as the smaller 1/96 Alfa it has been testing in.
I have my fingers crossed I can as Larry says. "Get-er-done!" BD. :mrgreen:

Jeff,

Yes, Sir! That is exactly what I am looking for! I will take you up on that. I'm bringing my best camera to take pics of all of these boats.


Dave,

Absolutely....I can't wait to see her!


Jim,

Yes, you do, and I want some good pics in and out of the water!

We will see you all there on Friday!

Best,

Matt

She goes in the pool today for the first test. :roll:
Fingers crossed I have the ballasting close. :D
You know a fairly large sub I have always wanted is a 571. :P :mrgreen: :P :lol:
I still have high hopes. 8)
I know if you can get it done it will be the best. BD.

Thanks, Dave! She (571) is in primer and will be ready for the mold shop when I get back from the Regatta. Jeffrey will have a hull in his hand shortly for the photo etched brass work....she sure is pretty!

Hi Andre! I would really like to get those pics in the article. Is there any way you could get them scanned and email them to me? I have to turn the article into Jeff asap.

Thanks!
