    I read an article about the Turtle some years ago and could not make up my mind if it really did work,so I decided to build a model in an atempt to find out,I have been working on it on and of for a couple of years now and at last it is finished and much to my suprize it does actually work.

    You can just see the top of the piston tank control rod in the centre of the boat,not much spare space once everthing is fitted.

    Excellent Nigel, it's really an unusual subject to build.

    Poor old Bob E looks well miffed off about being chucked outside in the snow though..
