    On behalf of Ron Perrott...

    Ron has asked me to post this here...believe me, this boat is well worth a look.

    ''Some years ago, John Robinson built an Engel Gato. The boat had a single Engel tank at the rear but a special, one off from me at the front.
    It had a load of electronics built in giving sound effects etc, and in its day was without doubt one of the best working model submarines in the world. John sold it to Stan Robinson who improved the looks of the model no end by making it closer to scale and he, in turn, sold it to Mike Merideth of Bristol.

    Mike had the model for many years and had the electronics updated and improved. Mike sadly passed away last year and the model is now up for sale by his family. If there is anyone who would be interested in buying a slice of model submarine history and getting a model that even today, with modern electronics and simplified pressure hulls etc, has a performance that many of todays experts would be envious of, then get in touch with Jotika Ltd.''
