I have the set that came from Model Boat's plane service Ref:BM1392,


I will be more than likely be wrong but I think the Seahund was a bit bigger that the Moich and that the Moich was the first of the two.

That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

Just had a look at my old no make that very old plans book and the boat shown doe's look like a seahund, I will try and have a look for my set of plans this weekend, but I seem to recall that the one on the plans has a different stern to the one in the book.

Hi
Had a look at the set of drawings that I have and no way do they look like the B/W photo in my plans book, if you Googal Molch Submarine that is the type one of the plans are fore.
Hope that this helps
