Norwich Sub Weekend
« on: July 16, 2016, 05:49:19 PM »

Hi All,

Just a reminder that next weekend is the largest model sub event in the UK courtesy of Paul Cook and the Norwich Model Boat club.

There is sailing on both days and it is a very good opportunity for anyone interested in subs to come along.

Thanks to everyone at Norwich MBC for hosting this event again!

Actually both days were very good, Tom.

Another really good weekend courtesy of Norwich Model Boat Club and Paul Cook. Exceptionally good weather and a nice clear pond. Thanks to all!

General video of the Norwich pond and a very nice target!

In this video snippet of his sub diving Martin explains his really nice, scratch built Japanese midget sub. My favourite for the weekend. Contra rotating props! If you could explain more about this sub, Martin, or point towards any articles. That would be great. Could I suggest an article for the "SubCommittee magazine?

Lots more photos taken by me on the weekend (Please don't copy them without atttribution.)

The AMS's own webpage has lots of pictures taken from other sites without any attribution whatsoever.

To be fair I had a great time not too busy and saw lots of great boats. Did your 21 suffer too badly from its fall from grace?

Fortunately only slight damage, thanks. A detached locating pin and a few scratches.
It was empty of the WTC etc, when it blew off the wall. Come to think of it that was probably why it blew off the wall!

Original Darnell hulls seem to be remarkably tough.
