    @Nickthesteam It will have static diving for sure! ๐Ÿ˜Š (dynamic is just too toy-like don't you think?)

    @Peejay

    The kits from rcsubs.cz consist of the 3D files for the hull, the blueprints, PE sheets with details and other bits for things like masts, deckguns etc...
    And they also offer to print the parts for you. That way it really isn't much different from a Revell or Robbe kit.

    This one i found online as a 1/350 scale 3D-origami like puzzle. But i thought: put it together digitally, scale it up, and i might just have something i can turn into an RC model. But the files contained waaaaay to many CSG errors. I mentioned that to the designer, not expecting anything further. Surprisingly though: he did reply, with a reworked version with about all errors corrected. AND: a seperate collection of 3D files at scale 1/48th specifically for RC use!
    I preferred to have it at scale 1/40 so it would match with the U47 and U2540 kits i got. But i accidentally rescaled it twice, and didn't notice until i was more then halfway through printing the hull parts. Making it closer to a 1/32 instead of 1/40 and a whopping 2m7 long! In hindsight though, because of the quite odd shape it has, even at 1/32 it will still only fit a 76mm WTC tube (1m long though). I haven't seen a lot of British subs at fairs or club invites, this thing is bound to turn quite a few heads.

    Finally got a proper kit for this submarine! It is hard to find, but quite special both in general, as for me: They were made at 2 locations in Germany during WW1. Made so that once made could be taken apart again in large chunks that would fit on a cargo train. Some were transported to Mariupol in today's Ukraine, and reassembled there for mission in the Mediterranean. Some were shipped to Hoboken-Antwerpen Belgium (where i live nearby :p ) reassembled in the docks of the Cockerill company there. Put on a float, ferried down the river Schelde to seaport of Zeebrugge where they did missions in the North sea.
    The model is a scale 1/30, 3D printed in ASA plastic. Wonderful material, finicky as hell to print, but once done it has wonderful retention of details and is very sturdy.
    Work in progress...

    Kit from RCSubs.cz. Fully 3D printed hull in ASA plastic, with a plexiglass WTC with printed lids also made from ASA. Details in PE brass and decals come with the 3D model files.
    Still a work in progress.

    I'm not sure what exactly you mean with 'solid ends'? English isn't my mother's tongue you see.
    The hull was designed by user 'Askarsil' on thingiverse:
