    A build log from 2017/18 ( more info soon):

    First photo is the original conning tower for an E class at RNSM. Gosport:

    This contemporary painting was very useful for the paint scheme:

    3D printing was used for many parts. (Very useful way of getting the shape.):

    The hull was a modified version of my previous U class boat. Sadddle tanks were just a "bolt-on".

    Hi Dave

    That is looking good it is nice to see some WW 1 sub's

    I have often wondered just were the molds that Dave Diplock made for the "E" class went.

    Thank you!

    I had a conversation with Adam of Mountfleet models last year at Haydock along the lines of "Where are all the WW1 British Sub models?"

    Dave Diplock came up in the conversation, I think, but we didn't know what had happened to his hulls. (The AMS magazine archive may have some clues.)

    http://www.associationofmodelsubmariners.com/pages/magazine.html

    Adam had a rather nice E class hull on offer at the show but I don't know if he intends to make them more available. (I don't even see any subs on their website now.)

    Happy New Year, Fred and everyone!

    Happy New Year to you and your Family Dave.

    Alas Dave went some time back, I asked Dick if he had any idea were they may be or just how many Dave made but he had no idea. some one did come up on the Mayhem forum asking if any one had any parts for the one he had.

    I am now a member of the Eastbourn club now so just may see if any one has any ideas.

    All the best

    Thanks David
    As for the workshop I did spend some time working in it, I remember that the back and the side wall with the dart board was the wall's of the old laundry that was behind Daves house, he was well miffed when they pulled it down.

    Let's hope Mountfleet put's them out soon.

    Fred
