    ๐Ÿ“ Stern Module assembly
    10 days ago by MouldBuilder ( Warrant Officer)
    Flag
    View All
    This weekend I decided to do more work on the Gato Submarine. Now I am starting to realise how big this job to build the model is, let alone the WTC which I am thinking about and starting to plan in tandem.
    I have been working on the stern module today trying to get the rudder and aft planes in a working state. I have followed the video made by a kind soul on the internet which I am finding very helpful. To make them fit properly has resulted in a lot of filing and reshaping particularly on the rudder. All of the edges were interfering all over. After a considerable amount of adjusting, they now fit and work perfectly. A hole was carefully drilled right through the height of the rudder to allow for a shaft to be inserted for operation. Small holes were also drilled through some waste material to produce two running bearings for the rudder shaft.
    There has had to be a considerable amount of material removal inside the stern module halves to allow for the planes and rudder to work. This was done using a burr in the Dremel and files. Great care was taken not to remove too much and go right through the part.
    I am having a little problem with warpage of one of the stern halves. You can see the gap between the parts in one of the photographs. It might be that they will glue together without incident if I fix them well with bands during curing. Does anybody have a cunning plan to straighten this part before gluing?
    I have purchased the propeller shafts and tubes so further work on this module will continue when they arrive, probably towards the end of July.
    I have now purchased my chosen motors. They are MFA 360. I have also ordered the raw materials to make the motor mount and servo trays. I wonder if I have to put the usual three suppressors on the motors if running a 40Mhz transmitter.
    Next time I am going to work on the bow planes. I will have them working and retracting. I bought the gears for the retracting mechanism today but have found them to be too big on diameter to fit two side by side in the bow module. The gears are perfect in every other way so I think I will reduce them to quadrants which should fit nicely. More cad design work for me I think.

    Hi Pete,
    "I have now purchased my chosen motors. They are MFA 360. ... I wonder if I have to put the usual three suppressors on the motors if running a 40Mhz transmitter."
    Most definitely!!
    Considering the attenuation of RF signals under water the last thing you want to do is take risks with interference๐Ÿ˜ฎ As the RF signal level falls off when you dive the boat any local interference, i.e. from the motors, will become more significant at the RX input.

    Re warped stern parts.
    You could try gently (and I mean gently Bentley!) warming the part (hair dryer?) while weighting it down on a flat surface. You may want to put some shaped wood block supports inside to ensure the part does not bend inwards.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Peter,
    I have found that it will glue together without any problem, you will have to hold it together tightly with masking tape until fully set.
    Keep up the good work.

    Thanks both. I will add suppression next.
    As for the warp, I think I will take a chance and glue as is. As the material is probably HIPS, the melt point is very low and I fear further damage could occur if heated. My main fear would be even further warpage as it cools. Better the devil and all that.

    ๐Ÿ“ Joining the fuselage.

    View All
    Just a small update today as I have been spending most of my available time on the Dusseldorf.
    Over the past week I have glued the two main fuselage halves together and then tidied up the joints.
    There is a lot of interest in Submarines in the USA and one particular modeler has created some very helpful video blogs of his build. I have been watching these which has taken up several hours. I am now getting an idea as to how difficult this is going to be.
    Within the videos, you can see a very useful stand has been constructed to aid the build. I just had to copy it using toilet overflow parts. The sub rotates nicely on the rollers.
    I have to try to find some materials for the retracting bow planes next which I think will be my first real challenge. Next update might take a few weeks.๐Ÿ˜€

    I had a couple of broken servos so I used the main cog from them.
    As you need to plan at least three steps ahead. Depending on your WTC and how many channels you will be using and how the bow planes servo is mounted you may find that you might not be able to get the planes to retract.
    I hope the attached photos will help.

    As the submarine does not have to move very fast and has two motors driving 35mm propellers, does anybody have a suggestion on how many rpm the shafts need to go. I am sure that torque is more important than rpm but a forward speed of around walking pace should be enough. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
    Peter.
    BTW jb, the bow planes are in the kit, the actuating mechanism is the item I have to figure out.

    Hi Peter,
    My U25 at 107cm is about 8/10 the size of your Gato, but probably heavier as it's hull is made of four planks of carved wood!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Anyway she goes just fine using two 385 motors on 6 or 12V driving 3 blade 30mm props.
    On 12V way too fast of course but it's fun to show up the speed merchants once in a while๐Ÿ˜

    Re dive plane retraction-
    Here's two possibilities!
    This one from the German model Sub tech expert Engel where I got my Akula 2 kit.
    It comes with a controller.
    https://engel-modellbau.eu/shop/en/Submarine-Kits/GATO/Retra...

    This one from your rc sub guys
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/RC-Sub-Mechanism-retraction-and-ope...
    Neither particularly cheap ๐Ÿค” but maybe the pics on these sites can provide some inspiration.
    Good luck and welcome to the 'Pig Boat' club!
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Peter.
    I honestly don't know.
    They were just two that I had lying around, I have to open up my WTC to try and sort out a small problem so when I do I will see if there is any markings on them.
    Unfortunately I will not be able to do that for a while as I am having slight health problems at the moment.

    I have a lot of preparation work to do on the bow and stern end caps before I fit the `wings` on. I have just purchased a Dremel to help with this work. I will practice first before cutting into the model. You know what practice makes. Smaller mistakes.....Maybe.,๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi again Pete,
    Check the specs before you order!
    MFA's 380 version does about 19k revs!!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Look for original Mabuchis or Johnsons. They are a bit tamer๐Ÿ˜‰
    25mm could be a problem! I think the 380s / 385s are all 27-28mm๐Ÿค”
    Scrape a mil off the inside of your tech rack tube!?

    OR, go for a 280 size (23.8mm dia๐Ÿ˜Š) such as this from AliExpress-

    I am about to start the most ambitious project to date. This one will be running alongside the three others currently on the go, The Police Boat which is nearly completed, The Dusseldorf Fire Boat which is well underway and the PTB upgrade.
    My intention is to change this Revell model into a static dive radio controlled Submarine. I am lucky that Martin555 has agreed to help whenever I get stuck which will be invaluable since he has already almost completed the same.
    I started by purchasing the model from Amazon for less than ยฃ50. I have also purchased the water tight tube for the electronics. I will make the end caps and sealed internal plugs from some 80mm diameter nylon I had at work. It will now come in handy that I am a toolmaker and have a considerable array of machines at my disposal.
    I will turn the plugs next week and find suitable o rings.
    I have started to prepare the hull. There is an enormous amount of work required to adjust the standard kit. A lot of cutting and drilling.
    I have prepared the split lines and glued in the alignment pegs.
    I have ordered suitable shafts and propellers from the USA. They should be here in a couple of weeks.
    Next job is to stick the two halves together and start the cutting.

    That's an impressive piece of plastic! How will you service the internals etc once glued together, o-ringed hatches or is the tube a complete drop in/removable module ? Must be a job trying to keep everything dry in subs, bad enough with racing boats! Certainly will save a lot of hull construction work doing it with the kit. A bonus would be that gluing bits to this material is easy and it's reasonably durable.

    Hi jb.
    This is all new to me as well. There will be a sealed tube about 50cm long inside sealed with o ringed bungs at each end with further sealed barriers inside to hold the flotation bladder. I have the tube and the material for the bungs which I will start soon. The tube should be relatively easy to remove as I will use magnetic joints for the operating rods. This project will take some time and will be quite expensive.๐Ÿ˜Š

    Magnetic rod joints, neat idea! (miniatures of magnetic table mechanism would be cool) depending on the magnets you might need to come up with a separating tool (neodymium magnets especially would be a mission in a tight space!) or will the joints be out in the hull space?

    The joints will be in the hull space along with the universal joints for the motor connections....I hope.
    I have just drawn the motor position layout and it looks like two 25mm diameter geared motors fit the bill. I would like to know what rpm I should aim for. I would have thought that speed of the boat was fairly unimportant. slow is good, but torque would be. I was thinking around 500rpm at 6 volts. We will see. Thoughts would be welcome from more experienced builders. The inside of the Water Tight Compartment will be 66mm. This allows for both motors to be almost entirely below the tube centre line.

    Hi.
    Good luck with the Gato Submarine.A great project.
    I built one from the same kit some three years ago although she is only a surface boat.
    I would be interested to know where you got the shafts from.
    I turned my own at home and also made the A brackets, adapted the original rudder etc.
    I attach a few pictures of her on the pond.
    Looking forward to reading more on your progress.

    Hi Bill.
    You have made a really nice looking model.
    This project will take a while but I am looking forward to it.
    The propellers, shafts and joints can be found on ebay. The item number is 273490619808. The seller is rc-sub-workshop. They are a little expensive but they do come with all of the required parts. I will let you know what they are like when they arrive. They are coming from Hong Kong I think.
