Thanks very much mate .
The body is fibreglass , get a big block of foam shape it paint on latex rubber then glass it . Steering is just by the tail 1/2 swings make it go either way full swings go straigth , diving the Pectoral fins work like alerions but if you go down you will loose radio it think the reciever is in the dorsal fin , I havn't go enough speed yet to dive it , so far it cruises like a shark . If I was to build it again I would leave out the moving pectoral fins . The pectoral fins are removable to make it easier to carry , it's only about 10kg and it's about 5 1/2 ft long , again if I were to build it again I would make it abit smaller only so you don't have to buy a large expensive servo to move the tail in the water , Smaller the shark the cheaper it will be .
The skin is Liquid latex rubber . If I can help in any way just let me know , I would love to know there is a secong rc shark scaring people out there . !!!!!

If I didn't know that was a model, I would've sworn that was a real shark swimming in that pool!!

Great job mate!

Ok , I put Bruce in the water last weekend , if you go to youtube and look under "rc great white shark" narrarick is my youtube name , Hopefully Manfred or someone can put the video up here {I don't know how}
He swum around for a while but I think water got into the servo for the tail , I want to make a more powerful servo , I need to turn a dc motor to a servo I need about 100kg to 150 kg of torque, LOOKING FOR HELP with that one gents , if anyone can help let me know
Cheers.
