    Hi Richard,

    my friend Hein (This submarine modeller David met on his visit of the Dortmund model exhibition) saw your question in the AMS forum and asked me to post this link leading to a group of young men (they must be even more crazy than we) who build a 1:1 model indeed:

    Kind regards

    Hermann, what an incredible bunch of people! My ex-wife told me I was mad to contemplate building a model submarine...I wonder what she would have said if something like these was growing in the garage!

    Absolutely incredible, thank you both.


    Regards,



    Richard
