Here's the start of my Delta submersible build. The model is a whopping 1:5th scale subject and will be completely scratch built. Nothing new to show on the master and molding process so here are some shots of the raw hull. The most interesting part for me is I am building a second one at the same time for a friend. These will be the only 2 produced as this was part of the agreement. (We like to have unique models.) Model will also feature a custom WTC with a piston tank. Plan is to have these beasts ready for the San Francisco regatta in Sept 2010.
Some of the details.
Polyester hull laid up from simple plaster molds.
22 (so far) urethane castings per boat. Window frames, ports, upper hatch, prop ring and details.
Custom WTC with piston tank.
