SubRegatta- list of who is coming?

Know of an upcoming modeling event?

Postby JDBostrom » Mon Mar 21, 2005 1:36 pm

I just thought it might be fun to see who is coming to the Regatta in July and what they are bringing. I am planning on bringing my one and only sub, the scratchbuilt 1/72
USS Silversides (SS-236). Can't wait! :D

I plan on attending with my 2 working subs. A Scale Shipyard 1/72 scale SKIPJACK; and BARB, a Thor Design PERMIT. I'll also be bringing my 1/96 scale BALAO class, finished or not. The BALAO class will be one of the Manitowoc, WI., built boats.

I'll be bringing info and images about the latest 1:1 prototype projects concerning:

1. What we are doing with our Seehund in Massachusetts (not much recently).
2. Images and info about the Brits rebuilding the Biber.
3. A former US Navy submariner who is rebuilding a Marder, ein-mann torpedo for the Mariners' Museum in VA.
4. A Norwegian who is rebuilding a Biber in Norway.
This guy is really good, he had to recast a new aluminum conning tower, and he is looking for interior details. He already has talked with the Brits. And incidently, he has two G7e torpedoes in his garage at home. But not the specific type torpedoes that were used with the Biber.
5. A German writer who just bought a Seehund from the museum in Munich. If you are interested, below is what we have learned so far.

There are two conflicting stories.
One says that the boat was separated (disassembled) for evaluation for the Dutch navy.

The other story says that the boat was roughly assembled from three sections belonging to different boats found at repair facility at Hoogoven in IJmuiden to make an exhibit for the Rotterdam naval station together with other ex-German midget craft. The interior of this boat is evidently only an empty hulk. And it is missing the plastic bubble (hatch). Plus the hatch that it does have is a really weird (non-Seehund) one.

It comes with two, whatever they are, torpedoes.
It is being used to start a new small, start-up, German u-boot museum.

I have heard from a lot of folks who are coming that don't regularly post on the SC website.

For instance, Dave Keoh - the new owner of SubTech from the UK will be there, Tom Anderson, Will Oudmeyer and Mike Dory from California, Skip Asay - New Jersey, Tony Gallonio - Rhode Is, Dave Merriman - Virgina, Dick Bernier, Dan Sinstead - Canada, the Rochester NY gang, a husband and wife from Florida, most of SubRon6 (about 20 people) etc, etc, etc.

All I can say is you had better not wait to make your room reservations!

Sounds like were going to have a full house. I am looking
forward to getting out and seeing alot of new faces. I plan on bringing my Sub-tech Albacore and British midget X-24. Don't think all have anything else done by then. I am going to call in today and book a room, better safe than sorry.

All:

I am planning to come with my Dumas Mackerel (SS 204) and the big Engel boat, the USS Silversides (SS236) in 1:48 scale. Maybe I'll have the latter one mostly done. I have been working diligently on this never ending project. Looks like there will be TWO Silversides attending, but in different scales!

I look forward to seeing those whom I know, and meeting a bunch of new submariners.
