Had a great Sunday morning at the newly filled pond with this very friendly club - thanks chaps!

Six submarines were there and we even had a sub rescue (We found her by eyeball after half an hour - no Pinger on board :)

Water is very clear and about 4 feet deep. It is nice to see the home of 1:1 submarines in the UK. back in action.

Dave,

Can you ever get in close enough to get decent shots of the Vanguard class of SSBN's?

Hi Andy,

Yes - I take it you mean 1:1 and I don't have to put a Homburg hat and trenchcoat on!!

I will ask club members for you.

Have you got launch shots and contacted the Royal Navy and BAE Systems??

I've built up a reasonable portfolio of Vanguard shots, but I can always use more.

Had some success with various sources, but blood and stone come to mind.

The word is that the Barrow Submariners Website

www.submariners.co.uk/

has some good general photos.

Also the Jecobin plans are really too good.

I will carry on asking.
