    Getting the hang of this scanner now...I think.


    Top pic is of my Darnell O/P class built as HMCS Onondaga.





    Pic below is of my Darnell X craft built as X-22.



    Last pic is of my old SLEC/Engel USS Patrick Henry on an operational patrol at full war readiness..pic was taken at a regatta Bernie Wood and I entered at a local club's lake.

    Thanks David...

    HMCS Onondaga was sold to a chap at the last Plumpton Racecourse show we did, he fell in love with the boat and he wanted it badly, so I sold it to him.

    X-22...I can't remember what happened to her. I think I sold her at the Gosport Show...?

    USS Patrick Henry...a Surrey police officer bought her, he had her a few days and then lost her in a big lake. She was down for days before the Police Underwater Unit located her jammed under a tree branch, and salvaged her. After all that time underwater she was as dry as a snake's armpit inside when she was opened up...but what happened to her after that I don't know.
