....I presume as Red O is in Welsh Wales there will be no pics forthcoming so how about another from the shores of Loch Ness prior to her departure to Englandshire. She should surface in Warwickshire soon.  Somebody take some pics pleeeeeze. <*<

Having arrived in North Wales, Red Oktober was captured by 2 nere do well's, but managed to escape and next surfaced on the Blackheath club stand at the Warwick Model Boat show, where after three days of having to listen all about steam, it lept into the arms of some passing French model boaters with the promise of fine wine and dining, and was last seen heading across the channel cleverly disguised as a russian sub.  :-))

Close-up of poster. The small print at the bottom says; "Do you want to assist in doing a "By Any Means" (BBC tv ) type trip for TOESUP`S model? Take it abroad with you on holiday? Are you employed by a shipping company or an airline?  There are modellers in 25 European countries waiting for a start of this project. Any ideas welcome. Cheap or free shipping.   A DUMMY RUN TO GERMANY AND AUSTRIA HAS BEEN DONE AND NO PROBLEMS HAVE EMERGED TAKING IT AS LUGGAGE WITHOUT BATTERIES OR RADIO.

What a very cool idea, If it ever gets to this side of the pond. It has an open slot here in Michigan and  we can cover Lake Huron,Lake Erie, Detroit river, Lake St Clair, Anchor Bay, Clinton River a couple of branches, And the defunct The Clinton-Kalamazoo Canal. Which started in Mount Clemens and made it 12 miles toward the west side of the state before it was abandoned  150 years later if you know where to look you can see traces of the aqueduct that carried the canal over the Clinton river a number of locations have water in them. And used as storm channels to the river.

 You are on for that PT :-)). Strange that you should mention the Lakes in your area.  The very first book I checked out of the local Carnegie public library was "Paddle to the Sea" , all about the native American boy who carves a model canoe and sends it from the snows to the river down through the Great Lakes to the ocean. Maybe this will be an up-to-date version. It has to get back to Toes in PNW sometime <*<, no rush.

Hello  :-)

Yes Red Oktober is in Brittany at Brest (the main Nuclear Submarine base in France) for a port of call.

As requested by Duncan I've start to managed a travel in France and I've just open this morning a post on one of the main french model boat Forum

 http://modelisme-naval-radiocommande.aceboard.fr/5522-660-38053-0-Springer-Oktober-world-tour.htm

I will give you details later.

Have a nice day
