Custom made two tube torpedo system installed. One finished torpedo comes along with a carrying case for 4. OTW fiberglass tower. Custom antenna housing on port side added as well as all tubing, working radar loop, antenna. Wintergarden raises, swivels and rotates manually. Scopes sleeved but not connected. Comes with rc aircraft retract system to operate scopes. All hatches open and close. Deck hatches hide on/off switch and charge valve for scopes. Stern tube in place but not torpedo system for it (lack of room). Deck gun mounted and swivels. Tower fastened to decking. Bow planes working ready to be hooked to servo. All stern planes, rudders etc. in place finished. Props/shafts/stuffing boxes in place.
Everything painted in automotive etching primer. Futaba 6 channel radio (air frequency), receiver, transmitter, Aluminum carrying case. Custom made oak display stand with German U-Boat medals attached.

I forgot to list one very important item I have for this uboat. I have the OTW dive module.
Dive and Leveling Systems

This system is built into a plexiglass tube. It comes completely assembled. All you need to supply are a radio receiver (FM, NOT PCM) and three servos. The module comes with the following items:
•Two drive motors complete with motor mounts and waterproof shaft housings for the propeller shafts.
•A speed controller rated up to 30 amps.
•A BEC, which allows you to run the whole system AND the radio off a 12V battery.
•A pitch controller, which keeps your submarine straight and level underwater.
•Reversible water pump and hydraulic valve.
•Electronic pump management system that is complete with two failsafe modes.
•Three ballast tank probes.
•Three stainless steel pushrods and clevises.
•Three waterproof silicone rubber bellows for the control rods.
•Two waterproof external battery connectors, one positive and one negative.
•A set of three baffles in the ballast tank.

The electronic components are mounted on two easily removable trays. All internal connectors are of the Tamiya type. 90% of the components are produced in-house.

Price reduced to $3000. This is less than I paid for the kit. Oh, and the torpedo system has been tested and fires perfectly.

Cheers!
