Title: HMS RENOWN TAKES TO THE WATER AT CANOE LAKE
Post by: Yarpie on September 21, 2012, 02:11:08 PM
On Wednesday, after a nine month conversion from HMS BARHAM, a 1:72 scale HMS RENOWN took to the water.

Conditions at Canoe Lake were perfect and the launch and subsequent acceptance trials went without incident. :-))

An ex club member and film producer was there to record the event and the video has been linked on the BARHAM to RENOWN thread by unbuiltnautilus. :-))
