    Whilst tidying the attic last weekend I found an old issue (june 1965) of the US magazine
    GRID LEAKS.

    It contains an article and abbreviated plan of the nuclear submarine George Washington.

    6 pages scanned and attached.

    The thing I love about this boat is that it is made from wood and is driven by a SINGLE CHANNEL RC system, This is when the new fangled Galloping Ghost was in vogue for model aircraft...

    Check out the transmitter and the wiring diagram - a work of art at that time.

    Indeed, it was after reading this article in the dim and distant past that my building of surface craft
    decreased as I became obsessed with the dark side.....

    Never mind, the iPad had problems seeing it, but not the laptop!

    It was great to read this article again by Brother Otto (Strange name?!)

    It takes me back to when I was 15 and my Dad brought a copy of this same magazine from the Model Shop in Bolton, Lancashire (I think it was - where the Beatles "holes" etc. came from!)

    I wonder if you got your copy from the same source , John?

    It was then and still is a very fine article that got me going and building subs.

    Nice to see transatlantic influences working even then in the days when everything moved at the pace of Seamail.

    Thanks for sharing!

    David
