    Norwich Model Sub Weekend 2017 - Norwich MBC

    Post  david f on Wed Jul 26, 2017 2:25 pm

    Some photos taken over the weekend in chronological order.

    Please identify your sub and let me know if I have things wrong. (There is a number above the photo.)

    Martin and his splendid, scratch-built Japanese sub, joined this year by an even more impressive Swedish Nak (Sorry about the Umlauts!)

    Nigel E's great new collection of American civil war and War of Independence subs joined on the Table by David J's impressive "Design Concept" British sub.

    Martin's Nak on the water:

    Paul B's impressive group of subs (always on the water first and last. ) (You have set us thinking about Group-Up and Group-Down batteries, Paul.

    For us that live far, far, away, if you would post names to whom these fine gentlemen are, it will help me to connect names to faces.
    Splendid photos!

    Great set of photos and videos David. I managed to take a paltry three before battery went.

    A GREAT weekend again. Thanks to all at Norwich.

    And a nice email from Hein in Cologne. (For those with models at Norwich, when German modellers compliment you on craftsmanship that is praise indeed!)

    David


    "Dear Mr. Forrest

    On your birthday the best wishes come from

    K. D. W (near Bremen) and

    Hein STINT (Cologne)  btw: Impressive photos from the event in Norwich last weekend.
    Some wonderful pieces of British craftsmanship!"
