Stingray 32 inch Kit Build

Postby mamas » Sat Aug 25, 2012 7:17 am

Hi Peeps

Long time since I posted on here, thought I'd start again with my newest subject. The Stingray sub for the TV show of the same name. I Made the master and moulds in a month and have since started a kit build. Going well so far and no just waiting for the Sub Driver to be produced. The video is of the Ratemaster (Clear part on the back) Spinning.

And Pics here.

And How do I post Pics on here(If there is a way)
Or do I have to go to one of those places like down below?

Your web page wont allow you to link to the images there.
The image above is linked to a image you uploded to Subdriver site.
I think most folks here link to images they have stored at postimage.

The basic kit.

I have designed a modular system for the Ratemaster spin mech and jet outlet (RC only as shown) and a WTC is being made up for the kit by David Merriman. The cabin can be Vacformed (Clear and solid) Plastic or a fibre glass casting.

What jet pump are you using? Is everything included (minus a WTC and the jet pump) that is shown in your set of photos or are you offering two different kits? (static with interior vs. r/c)

Looks like this would be perfect for an RCABS-based dive module.....

As you see it in the photo is what you get with the basic static kit, I forgot to mention that David Merriman will be doing an interior for the kit as well as a few other bits like a gimbled nozzel for up and down trim as well as left and right. The clear plastic parts are laser cut and include a mounting ring and on to that you can attach various modules depending on what you want it to do.

Is the propulsion system also called a vectored nozzle?
Kind regards,

The jet is a Kehrer 28-mm-Jet with short steering nozzle

The Nozzel vectors the thrust in a left and right Motion. David is developing an up and down one as well.

Connected a freed up S-148 servo to the Ratemaster and the spin rate is reduced by quite a bit, more in keeping with what was seen on the screen.

This looks great! Stingray has always been my favourite, along with Thunderbird 4.

Where could i get this kit? Any price indication?

Thanks, Andy!

It looks terrific! There is no currency symbol with the price (or at least i can´t read it'), but I suppose it´s in Pounds. Which comes to a setback of around 415 Euros excluding P&P.

One definitely worth saving for. I have started by bookmarking the website. Now if only I could shift those Revell Gato's.....
