    Norwich Sub Day 2010

    Post  Tom(ADMIN) on Tue Sep 27, 2011 3:23 pm

    Pictures from the Norwich Sub Day, held at Eaton Park, Norwich. A superb location for running model subs, beautiful weather, and plenty of cracking subs.

    All pictures by Paul Cook, event organiser and AMS member.

    Three general views looking out over the lake.

    Nigel Edmonds being interviewed by Ian Oldham for the AMS magazine.

    Neil "Pop" Gunn videoing Nigel's Turtle in action.

    Turtle on the surface.

    Going down!

    Hovering nicely underwater.

    Down down, deeper down...

    And back on the surface again.

    Turtle on it's custom made display stand.

    Norwich Model Boat Club chairman Jeff Johnston's HMS Resolution and USS Ohio.

    Dennis Ponds' Seehund, Sheerline Type 2 U-boat, and OTW Type XX111.

    Bill Macleod prepares his superb X craft built by Nigel Edmonds.

    Bill ready to launch the X craft.

    X craft under way and looking super at periscope depth.

    Ian Oldham's Hecht resplendent in full camofluage colour scheme.

    Ian's Type XX111, built from a Darnell Models kit.

    Another picture of Dennis Pond's boats.

    What fine models!
    The day looks perfect, too!
    Has Paul sailed his 32nd Parallel Gato, yet?
    I'm about to buy a 32nd Parallel Type VII.

    Found a few more pics I'd forgotten to add...

    First two are of the aircraft carrier HMS Ocean, built by Richard Thurston of Norwich Model Boat Club.

    Bill Macleod's X craft just setting off on a mission.

    And running at periscope depth.

    Nigel's Turtle, Bill's X craft and an unknown monitor meeting up. Any more details on the monitor, who built it, etc, would be appreciated.

    Well done to all those Norwich Model Boat Club members who were involved in the organising of the show, and thanks again to Paul Cook for the superb photographs.
