    For those members who do not partake of "Marine Modelling International", Be on the lookout for the October 2014 issue available about 25th September

    The FREE plan is of the second world war submersible WELFREIGHTER, a follow up to the WELMAN one man submarine.

    I have just been into Kendal and picked up this copy of MMI.

    Quite a good article about the various Wel**** devices (Welman, Welbike, etc.)but the plan itself is a bit freelance and the model is non-diving. You can't have everything!

    It also makes the good point that it looks rather like a small fishing boat but I still think a RIB has to be more useful.

    Also no mention of a rather impressive model of the Welfreighter owned by Greenwich Maritime Museum. (I saw it used in a lecture there.)
