Updates from the Drydocks- May 14th, 2021
Out of the shop!
Well it is that time again. I need to return to Houston for my biannual cancer check up. This time, however, I am flying myself up along with my flight training instructor rather than flying commercially. We leave in a couple of minutes for the 8 hour flights up to Houston. I'm really looking forward to the experience.
I will be out of the shop until Thursday morning, but if you have questions or need to get ahold of me, feel free to shoot me an email. I will be checking it regularly.
Japanese I400 parts nearly done!
All of the 3-D printed parts for the new Japanese submarine are nearly completed printing. I even managed to work out the files for a scale Seiran float plane that should really finish off the look of the kit. If things go well I should be able to start assembling it, along with a full build-up video blog starting late next week or early the week following.
The static display model of this unique French submarine should be completed on Thursday if things go well. I just barely ran out of time to finish it before I had to leave. All that is left to do is a final bit of weathering and await some line, and it should be ready to go!
This should prove to be a fast and unique build. Over the years I have put together dozens of fully functional remote controlled Disney Nautilus submarines, but this one will be following a slightly different design methodology. I am going to try out ready made watertight boxes rather than a cylinder. I am hoping that this could potentially reduce the complexity of the build as well as its cost. This will be a fully documented video blog build as well, so keep an eye on my channel for updates.
