    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.

    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.
    Cheers,
    Giovanni
