If you haven't already, check the SubCommittee . The SubTech MARLIN and ALBACORE are good entry level static dive subs.

You may also want to also look at Small World Models.

I recently built up Dave's new Trenchant, and it is very comprehensive kit. I actually found this to be an easier build then my Albacore.



I have dealt with both SubTech and Small World Models. You can't go wrong with either choice.

Just my 2 cents.

Great pic BC !
Now if I could drag out my dry suit and dry gloves, regs, tank and U/W video camera etc............I'd find myself being locked away by men in nice white coats 'cos Englands really cold at the moment. Break ice on our local lake etc.

Chris,

Thanks, glad you liked it. I have to say the conditions here in Canada are pretty much the same as you describe them. All boats are now in dry dock ...

Cheers
