    This is another "white whale" model of mine. I use that term for any model that I've always wanted to make, but have been stymied by either complexity of a certain part, or just plain cold feet. But, after years of trying and failing, I think I have something that works. So, without further ado, I present: the Red October.

    So this came out as expected - simple and small. Maybe somewhere along the line I'll do a better version, but for now, we'll just have to contend with this. I'll upload the model in a few hours.

    Could you post a pic of the lower (bottom) aft section... I'm wondering where the 'Shaft Fins' go.
