Trumpeter_SEAWOLF_1_144_kit_RC Conversion


HI,

I know,most of You'll gonna say "NOT THESE AGAIN!", but is my first attempt to do such complex thing so I gonna need a lots of advices from You.
I bought these kit and the "Trumpeter 1_144_KILO", from another modeler,last year,but only 2 month ago I started mount them.
I initially thought to mount these two submarines as exhibits desk only but when I reed what can be don with some efforts I said:"I can do it!".
I'll see if I was to confident on what I can do or fail to!
OK,enough with talking.
These is what I have don until know:
MANNY THANKS in advance.
Regards
MARIUS

Why did you recast the rudders in resin?

HI,
@redboat219,
There were already glued on the model and I had to cut them (during these process I couldn't avoid the deterioration of it! ) when I saw what can be done and because was to thin,kipping the air captive inside.
And then I did not know how to put rods in and fix them,plus are the most hardest hit parts for various reasons and I want them stronger.
