03/03/2017. U36. Length 20". Wet Hull Dismantlable Clockwork submarine.
All of my submarines so far have been dry hulls , that is to say that they are water tight and soldered shut for all eternity . However U36 represents a totally different approach to my usual method.This boat is a wet hull, which means it floods throughout except for the copper motor box which is sealed but openable , the yellow tanks are actually to keep it afloat but can be flooded to neutral buoyancy for dynamic diving. The other feature of U36 is that the whole boat can be dismantled right down to the motor . The design is modular so all the parts are easily removable , the hull is ultra smooth and the performance is outstanding.
