This is a very nicely detailed kit and as best as I could tell after a short 'fondling', an accurate kit. (there are one or two things I might argue about) Converting this kit to be an r/c runnable sub will likely be a very common thing for folks to do and doesn't look like it will be difficult to do. I know that Jim is looking to make his operational.
I'm looking forward to seeing what folks builds look like, both static and r/c. I may just have to pick up a kit for myself!

The other major item are the upper bow free flood vents which are mirrored port and starboard. The photos that I have and the drawings show them as staggered by a frame. Check out the scans that I shared with you in my Dropbox.
There are a couple of other items that I need to verify, but they are really minor.

Looking ahead, there is not much about the boat's running lights. I thought about wiring them up and replacing the clear parts with LED's. There appears to be one light forward and aft in the port and starboard light housing. All the instructions say about them is "Clear". That can't be right. What color were they?
