Ahoy Mateys, U48,this ones taken me ages due to a brief hiatus brought on by a touch of black death I caught. Anyway another bin salvaged effort made entirely from scrap tin and alarm clocks.
No ballast tank in this one,the smaller boats don't need them and dynamic dive on planes alone,or just surface run.
Cheers Neil
