    German U-36, a Type 212 submarine

    Russian K 493, an Alfa class submarine

    USS MacDonough, a Farragut class destroyer
    USS Lake, an Evarts class destroyer escort

    Hi Dwayne,

    That's a fantastic fleet and mostly scratch- built. RESPECT!

    Any chance of some photos?

    I'm very interested in WW2 U class subs which were used by other Navy's. (I'm doing a long term build on a Polish U class the Dzik.) Was HMCS Windsor in this category?

    Welcome!

    David

    U Class

    Post  Windsorsub on Wed Aug 17, 2016 12:02 pm

    Good morning David,

    The U class I am referring to is the 1986 British "Upholder" class, which were sold to Canada in 2001. The closest thing to a WWII U class I have is my HMS Tally Ho, which as you know is a T.

    If you search "My 2015 Fleet" on youtube, you will see all my ships/subs in action. Many thanks for the kind words.

    Wow! Beautifully composed video. And those subs are trimmed to look like they operate over rails. Excellent video!
