The list of interesting modeling subjects is long. Somewhere near the top of that list for me have always been modern submarines, particularly US Navy nuclear subs. My friend Michael Smith also shares this interest, but in his case he prefers his models to not only look nice but to operate as well. By good fortune I happened to have a set of Greg Sharpe’s excellent 688 class plans drawn to 1/72 scale. We decided to pool our resources and build two models, a static one for me and an RC version for Michael.
