Very good innit ! O0    Does the sub deploy ?  It looks like a lot of the things that come up to Loch Ness in the hope of finding Nessie every so often. Even Ballard came once. Original Pisces been too. There was even a tour-submarine for a season, pricey.

Hi, no unfortuantly the sub does not deploy from the springer, but it does work.
The sub was a fathers day gift ( although I did choose it myself, 9.89 from Tesco's)
It works really well to actually submerges, by means of an expanding chamber
( I think). We dont tend to see the Loch Ness monster down here in Cambridgeshire, but Oliver the search srpinger and the mini-sub are on standby. ;)

...you mean ahead, ehm :-\ ahead /astern  :( I mean backways forward  :embarrassed: ...or ehm ..uhm..........  THIS VESSEL NEEDS A SIGN ON IT TO SAY "FRONT" at the front(STERN) and another at the STERN not the front(BACK-END) bow.     I hope this clarifies matters.

No Arrow, you are right, the deck actually is on the right way round (Backwards) as this is a Regnirps class... and yes, the knees are where the props are... at the stern, which is actually the bow.... where the props will be.
Seeing as how this Regnirps will be going backwards, ie 'forwards', with the knees at the stern (now the bow) thats why its become known as 'WW' or Douglas Corrigan to give it its proper name.

Does that make it clear?  O0

 ......Hi Guys.....

....Ralph...
I think you should call this tug or gut or whatever way rounda kinda boat that it is
" Number 69 "... All in the nicest possible taste, Of Course...

I was going to ask " Where,s the toilet" But I,ll wait until we know what end is what before asking...

Its a cracker of a boat whatever way round it is...Well Done Ralph...

I think I.ll need to get the mould out again & make myself a GRP hull or two...

...All The Best...Norry & Wee Johnny...

 Should have been called  "Ascender".  O0   Wonder what colour the navigation lights are...green/green, red/green, red/red, green/red, ultra-violet/infra-red to overpower the Day-glo paint ?  :kiss:  Good idea for more `glass hulls Norry, a bit lighter this time maybe ?

..and my favourite Czech mate, a Clyde "Puffer" Springer ! All the above from the excellent www.mo-na-ko.net  site, lots of tug-towing there as well as general boat modelling. Language problem though, only in Czech.
