3 CHANNEL RADIO CONTROL
by F. J. Macclay
THIS model of the Russian Charlie Class submarine follows the layout of using a 4in dia, PVC tube for the hull and glass fibre for the nose and tail cones. The nose and tail cones are formed around expanded polystyrene blocks (obtainable from builders' merchants) cut and sanded to the general shape, then glued into the cut length of PVC tube. Masking tape is wrapped around the polystyrene to prevent any reaction against the glass fibre resin and two or three layers of glass fibre tissue are required. When completely dry, cut away the end sections and remove the polystyrene from the moulds.
Cut away the removable deck section from the PVC tube (it is used later) and glass fibre into position the tail section to the tube. The PVC tube will tend to collapse when the removable deck is cut,
