There are two- This one, and the AMS-

Also, there are some excellent submarine modellers who meet up at Black park, which isn't far from where you live I believe.

What Engel boat have you purchased?

Ah okay. A Type IX- nice boat.

I don't know anyone who has built one in the UK, but if you get stuck, let me know and I'll do my best to assist.
