    Thanks for yr interest Martin.
    Problems revolve around wanting to make the rear dive planes and rudders slightly bigger to improve control. And then the petty fragile stays on the end of the rudders and dive planes...they are simply not going to stand up the a working model environment. .. Probably going to mean making up the stays with soldered wire rather than plastic.
    One prop blade from the kit has already parted company with the prop hub and a replacement/s (25mm) has proved to be unobtainable from local hobby shops and local member caches. Sourcing from the UK (normally someone from the village is either coming or going from the UK and are able to hand carry small items in their baggage) is difficult our our postal service has just about collapsed and Covid 19 hasn't helped as we are just coming out of total lockout of international flights leaving the only way to get stuff is to courier it...at costs that presently makes ones eyes water!
    Anyway ...no problem is insurmountable and soldiering on will get thing sorted...eventually.
    Cheers

    Thanks Doug. Received.
    Assistance appreciate as always.
    Regards

    p.s. Progress is very mundane at present. Cutting out zillions of "Free flood" holds in the hull, sorting out a suitable perspex tube for the WTC. (Not too critical an item as I am building the sub as a Dynamic" diver so intend to not loose sight of the periscope when underway so no water pressure problem anticipated!)

    I've scanned the plan in three A3 pages, with a generous overlap to make it easier to piece them together.
