Was also spotted in Scalloway, the ancient capital of these islands, paying respects to the gallant men and women of the clandestine  "Shetland Bus" who served in the Great Patriotic War out of these waters to enemy occupied Scandinavia and beyond.   Reminders of an  earlier conflict is the 17th century cannon from the naval raids of the 2nd & 3rd Anglo-Dutch wars.  Oil related "floatels" in various bays and sheltered inlets seem to be a subject of interest.

Could it be that Red O is back in the Baltic, due to the increased activity by the Swedish Navy in the Stockholm archipelago? ok2

It is a known fact that Red Oktober left some deposits :o in the vicinity of the Swedish coast to confuse any searchers. %)

latest intel suggests that it is sheltering in a fiord at North57 degrees pending a dash to southern waters.  Classified details on secure PM.  Love Olga :kiss:

Nope, still thinking about that.  Meanwhile the traveller is resting up a fjord in the north.

Red Oktober is on the move. It was seen fraternising with natives in City of Glasgow. Believed to be a staging post for a voyage further south , England is south so who knows. Updates when available.

Pictured as Red Oktober blows cover to sail on Richmond Park pond in Glasgow.  Blue sky, thin ice, no wind, perfect.

Well after that distraction, I was going to tell Paul about some serious fishing boat hulls but had to clean the coffee off the keyboard.  Paul, there are some serious fishing boat hulls coming from the Barra Fishing Boat Mouldings outfit. They have a Facebook page , have a search.  Scale 1:30th because they are bulky.

Red Oktober finally left the surly bonds of earth and took to the skies bound for Canada`s west coast. Agents are poised to put the renegade under surveillance upon arrival. RCMP (Mounties) have also been notified. It was last seen in the UK visiting a "model" shop.

Thank you Ray, certain authorities prevented pictures to be posted by me, you must be using special equipment. I have archived my copies for future use.  Pleasant flight?  Sorry I didn't waive due to course deviation. {-)
