    HI David
    I think Tim did a great job on doing the videoing and editing. On the day of videoing the sub the camcorder would some times work and some times it would not it came close to it being in the lake with the sub.

    I wonted to get some video of the sub going around at periscope depth but the camcorder decided it was not going to work. But i must admit it does look good on the water, and like you said it looks more realistic being so big, but it is a pain in the back end trying to get people together and help me take it out. Let me know what you think of the other two bits of video

    Thanks David,
    every one I spoke to over the weekend where mesmerised by it, not just by the size but all the work manship gone into building the model and all the electronics.

    Big thanks to John and Pauline for bringing it to the show. There was one person I will not forget, that walk round the corner and saw him fall back in shock when he saw it.  I know one person that normally hates Subs, saw it and now has changed his view on subs and already asking how they work and where to get one

    Nice video, love the underwater shots and check it out at 1.11 where you see one of the fittings heading for Davy Jones' locker.

    Thanks John, was good to see it in the water. now has battle damage too lol. all you could hear was "turn turn turn too late". will be doing some more video of it with a prober camera for above the water as only had my mobile and ran out of battery on the sub camera.

    even a group of carp in the lake where interested in the subs. swam around neptune a few time and got some cracking show of them.

      Current date/time is Wed Apr 01, 2020 10:25 pm
