    Thanks to our beloved Chairman Nigel, there are now nearly ninety new images in the Archive section. Nigel spent the best part of yesterday afternoon and evening scanning and posting these images. They are all part of my photo collection of the AMS in action back in the 80's, shows we attended, different types of boats, and some of the early members of the Association.

    They present a fascinating insight into the early days of the model submariner, and some of the things we used to get up to back then. Some of the images I've managed to identify, but there some of unknown people or boats...if you think you can add a description to any of them, then by all means do so. Just email me or Nigel and we'll add the information.

    Thanks Nigel, you've done us all proud.

    Really good to see these photos meeting the light of day again.

    Quite humbling really, in that technically we have not moved on very much, in what, 25 years?

    They made feel old David...some of them go back nearly thirty years. But it was really nice to see some of the old faces again, albeit much younger! And to see some of my boats again... the ones of U-117 in the pool at the Plumpton Show were embarrassing to say the least, with five fully grown men trying to get it to submerge, then seeing Dave Asker picking up pieces of it from the bottom of the pool!

    And the ones of me holding Terry Chamerlain's huge T class aloft..they very nearly got deleted!
