    www.subpirates.com is a very good RC submarine site.
    I am building a brass 1/12th scale circa 1898 USS Holland (54" length).
    Here is my fiberglass version with all-brass stern section.

    Thanks!
    The all-brass USS Holland submarine will have a multiple section 260 brass metal hull.
    I will spin the hull in 5 sections then silver solder them together. The super structure will be made from 260 brass sheet. All of the fittings will be cast using the lost-wax method. I have all of the parts drawings in DXF files allowing me to 3D laser print all of the parts. I can then use the printed parts to make the rubber molds for injecting the wax.

    Your welcome.
    I'm applying for membership at the TechShop.
    They have millions of dollars worth of high-tech machines.
    It is only $100.00 per month but will save me thousands of dollars.
    Some of the members have become wealthy entrepreneurs with their prototypes.
