    Hi Alan,

    It may help people if you are a bit more specific.

    Assuming that you want a r/c model then a second hand Darnell may be a good choice - they come up on ebay from time to time.

    The Darnell moulds are still around, by the way, and are now owned by Mountfleet models if you want to start from a new hull.

    Sadly there are not that many suppliers of British subs around. U boats are too popular!

    Hi David

    Mountfleet say they have the Darnell moulds on their web page but I cant find them advertised for sale anywhere in the UK. I have read of some retooling of the moulds, they were in desperate need of some work years ago bu no indication for release. An American company seem to be advertising what was Darnell's full range of hulls, minus the diving system. They also sell lots of other companies goods.

    Call me suspicious but it is almost like the hulls are available in the USA and not the UK which makes me wonder where are the moulds are at. The company selling theses are well know and respected "Loyalhanna Dockyard" and sell all sorts of modeling equipment. This is the current list of available subs but as for the price, I will leave you to make up your own mind - I almost choked, but I am very tight fisted.

    Regards
    Bernard

    I have heard a little about Loyalhanna Dockyards in the past. From their site they look like a dealer rather than the originator of things. They obviously offer the Darnell hulls.

    Anyone know more about them?
