    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.

    Tin?

    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.
