Greetings to all!!
This is my first post re. Subcommittee,& I am a
new guy to sub modelling,although my interest in
the Fleet Boats goes back to the T.V. show "Silent Service"
in the mid fifties.I've been an active armor modeller for
many years,& was much enthused by the RoG type VII,
but never built one.The idea of a proper Gato in 1:72
has me wound up like a 4 yr. old before Xmas,however.
The am't of literature on the Fleet Boat operations
alone is staggering,& this site has all the signs of the
support a newcomer will need re.a decent model attempt.
I'm hoping to build an early,1942 style Boat,& I am
counting on Revell to give us a good basis,& AM
goodies should do the rest,esp.an early,uncut Bridge
assy.,or perhaps Revell may give us options,as in the
U 552 kit.
One bit of help I could use right now,however...
Could you folks suggest a selection of reference
books covering the Fleet Boats? I can build up
my library while we all wait for the "KIT" to be
Roowalker on The S.C. Coast
