Here are some pictures of my model of the USS HAMMERHEAD (SS-364), a BALAO class built in Manitowoc, WI. The hull is from Scale Shipyard. The WTC is from Small World Models. Motors/drive system, APC, & Sub Safe from Sub Tech. Receiver is a Sombra Labs Shadow 1 synthesized unit. Futaba transmitter on 50 MHz and Futaba servos. Mtroniks esc.

The WTC and end caps were made by Small World Models, unfortunately the 2.75" WTC I have is no longer in production.
