Photos wanted, please...
« on: March 17, 2017, 01:27:04 PM »

Chaps...I know for a fact that there were many of the little MAP submersible...Jelly Bean...Egg...whatever you want to call it...built over the years, including the fibreglass version manufactured by Slough Model Centre years ago.


But..despite much googling, I can't seem to find any photos of the things. Apart from mine, and the one that Alan at Fratton Models restored a while back for a customer, photos of the little beasts seem to be like rocking horse sh droppings.


If any one of you guys ever built one...has one...or has some photos of them, please either post them up here, or email them to me if you wouldn't mind. I would be eternally grateful...
