    A really good day, enjoyed by all. Many thanks to Rob, Bournville MBC and everyone for doing this.

    A very interesting selection of model subs. (more details to follow.)

    My own small contribution (ORP Dzik in action)

    Lovely, weathered U class by Pete.

    I agree, outstanding photos! I really want to get there someday. What amazing subs and turn out looked great. How many captains were there with R/C subs?
    Peace,

    Gosh, I didn't do a head count. Maybe about 20.
    Actually it would be really nice to have a much travelled visitor dropping in to one of these events.
    I think we have had a Dutch modeller.
    I suppose it wouldn't be too difficult to make it part of a holiday??
    But sorry I am not planning any Californian adventures, Tom. Naples, Italy is the next trip and no submarines, I think.

    Alfold is a nice (weekend) show run for charity in a very pretty location and probably a good one to attend if you live locally. Unless that applies, then Norwich is your best bet, in my view.

    There is only one annual AMS exhibition stand now at Haydock Park during the August bank holiday. (We don't arrange any sub events)

    Let us know more about Sumner ponds if you would like it posted up here. (I'm not familiar with it.)

    Sunmer ponds

    This is a good event with some interesting ponds for subs. Also many other models over two days. Worth a visit.
