RC modeling is a very rewarding hobby.

 

All you need are basic skills, a good eye, and a bucket full of patience. and of course a bit of free time,

 

 

And there lies my problem 1 out of 4 ain't really good enough :( Edited by contraman

I prefer the original myself.  It looked very authentic.  Now it looks like it has a couple of long cigar tubes or torpedos hanging off the sides.  Just my opinion

Mr. Mike

http://seagifts.com/caabshumobok.html I built the Calypso about fifteen years ago, sailed beautifully. I keep it in a glass case.

 

 

I built a Gato class submarine as well, I'll see if I can find a picture of it. It looked like this.

 

I am now building a Uboat.

 

 

 

Fun topic by the way!

Wow thats a nice boat gato

I wish I have the patience building this scale boats

I was building an aziz

I have everything except the battery

I ordered actions electronics from dave (uk)

Complete set of p94 etc.

I think almost all modeler's are using actions electronics

And I have robbe geared motors

But right now I want to build a sports fishermen yacht
