    I have been watching your reports since the beginning and have two thoughts my first is that you told us a little white lie that this is your first design. My second thought is if this is his FIRST design what will Kooklik come up with for his second model.

    This is defiantly a commercial quality model and from what I can see of the construction method the model is very well thought out.

    One magnificent model!

    Hi to all :)

    Thanks for all recommendations those make me fill more energy to this project. A lot of supports from NOBI make me more careful in design and build. We must give thanks to him.

    Best Regards

    Yes man ... this as a first design is amazing. Somewhere Halinski and GPM guys are either cursing your existance in creating a better product or drooling to pickup someone that can design at this level.

    You might as well build this from tin at 1:1... :D

    I thought that paper was a better building material. Can you explain why you think tin would be a better material?

    he wants to scale it up to 1:1/life size, and tin wouldn't weigh as much, plus then he can say, he joined the tin can navy :-D

    oh, 1:1

    I wouldn't mind being in the tin navy. But, I definitely want to build this sub and be in the paper navy.

    What I want to know is, will it come with working torpedos? You see, there are these cats that come onto my property...

    Harpoons would likely be a better option, that or the V2 that was supposed to be towed across the pond and sealaunched at targets on the North American east coast.

    ...at least it wouldn't be....sub-par ;)
