View Full Version : WTC for SCALE SHIPS AKULA
Hi from Madrid. I purchased your WTC for the Revell VII C some time ago. Thinking about my next project, went to the SCALE SHIPS AKULA. Wayne and Steve told me to contact you about your RCABS - R system. Does it fit for that sub? Would it be possible to have one?
Regards from Spain.

Without reading this, I posted on the Akula thread my thoughts on Dave's RCAB. In particular, the reverse RCAB.
I have no doubt it will work. None at all. The Scale Ship hull looks huge in the inside after messing around with a Trumpeter Seawolf's innards.
A reverse RCAB should work nicely.
Lastly, I will throw in that Vladimir and Big Dave both, in my mind, are excellent vendors with good reputations.
This, of course, is just my opinion only.
My name is Wayne Frey, and I approved this message :D
I second that. Both men are gentlemen. My opinion also.

Thanks Wayne. :D
After that buildup I find it difficult to say at this time I do not sell a system large enough to operate the Akula. :oops:
I have a prototype system but it is not in production yet. Sorry! BD.

Yes, but a 3 inch WTC (or larger) would certainly not be any harder than what you have done already,Dave. And the fundamentals are the same, right?
While I am throwing that out there, the Engle system works fine also.
Likely something like that will find it's way into my Oscar.

It is just a different design Wayne.
The 3" system is designed to use in any hull that would be in its size range. The prototypes worked well and are still working well after 3 years. :wink:
They were just very time consuming to build and a few things about the design I did not like.
I have some changes in mind but time has gotten away from me. :roll: :roll:
I need to stop making excuses and start working on it again. :oops:

Well, since that is what I am going to do to the Akula, what do you see as problems ? I must be missing something. The principle looks pretty straightforward. Even using the same pump,clippard valve and an electronic switch. Use one, maybe even two large bladders to get the jacked up waterline the Russians sometimes do. What could be the tuffy, Dr. Dave??
The 3 inch WTC on your website looks perfect, no?

The problem is time. :roll: :lol: :lol: BD.
