Steve,

That part you made where the diesel exhaust penetrates the conning tower structure is called a stub-end flange. It allows the naval mechanics the ability to remove the exhaust easily without having to cut anything loose. It bolts up to a pad flange on the conning tower surface. I have drawings for all of those flanges in full scale for you, if you would like them.

Steve,

The R-10 looks *great*! Should be a blast running it in the pond.

I do have a question: where's the mechanic's vise that's mounted on the aft edge of the sail? That's one of the 'spotting features' for this sub. :mrgreen:

Looking great Steve. I love getting the "shout-outs" on your channel. I see a ton of similarities to the S class you re-worked.

Perhaps you could CAD a bench vice up and have it 3D printed.

Are you going to paint the smallish R-10 on the sail?
Love the model and your work.
