Want to meet down the local parks pond for a game of "cold war op's". I have a pair of Oscar & Whiskey submarine's, we can play war games.

Mr GS has something very similar to that given to him when he left, the only difference is that his is on a wood plaque thing with bent sticking up bits. Must have a look for the made in China stamp. :roll:

Okay then - I'll use my other boat - The Cardboard Bomber.
I used to have two - but I lost the other one in a pond in
Scarborough.....wasn't very watertight and failed it's first
deep dive (to one and a half feet). Grand-kids were a bit
hacked off as they both had to batter their way through
the pressure hull to get out.

Of course,when I was on the Turtle...........

Loads Joe, but its amazing what a paint job does!
I'm not talking about minor details which only a real spotter would see,I'm referring to a major conceptual fundamental error.

Hi JC

Got to careful with 'spot the difference' as the Official Secrets Act springs to mind; Bingham etc....But:

Black Picture - Screw/Cavitating, I would accept that artistic license was needed to indicate some movement.
Rudder perspective appears wrong. Configuration of sticks raised at Launch. Launch Depth? - don't even go there.

Middle Grey Picture - Rocket half out of #15 Tube is not as plumb as Coulport prefer.

Bow Caps? only 4 'tubes these days? F'ends must be like a Ball-room!

Models? Unsniffable glue, so include me out.

A Pint you say? Yes please, of Pussers Rum, NO ICE though

350 feet = 1 foot or 350Metres = 1 metre JD. A Trident is about 149.9 Metres long take it from there matey

Bleeding hell my Type VIIc at 68 inches long would outdo that!!
