I can't post pics, but here is a link to a built-up Typhoon model. http://www.silentthu...an_typhoon.html . If you take away the tower and the fins, you are left with a pretty good shell about 9 inches long. Plus the models are cheap to experiment on!

Correction; The Kursk I bought is actually the 1/700 scale Typhoon sold by HobbyBoss, not 1/350th. These subs are essentially two submarines linked side by side so the hull is wider than it is tall. I think it will just hold a VW or Corvair engine. Incidentally, there are  several 1/350 scale subs made by HobbyBoss that make pretty decent tank bodies if you shorten the length a bit. Their LA class and the Soviet Alfa come to mind. They can be found at most hobby stores for $10-15. I would post a pic, but I still can't seem to conquer that technology!

Thanks for the help. I found a 1/350th scale Kursk submarine and decided it would make a cool 1/25 lakester with a boxer engine.
