Canberra regatta.

Postby David H » Tue Jan 15, 2008 4:10 am

Hey brad,

I reckon that If I take enough pics and get down enough names I can write an article for the SCR that should rival the US SCR regatta report.

Have you built anything new since i saw you two years ago?

regards,

David H :D

Hi David!

I haven't built anything new, but did rebuild both my Akula & Kilo so now (touch wood!!) they're both performing much better :roll: My latest project is actually a Flower class corvette for my eldest son, but once I'm done with it I'll be starting another Soviet sub, in 1/72 scale this time.

I've been playing a lot with my new ATC2K camera and look forward to recording some nice underwater footage from this at the SubRegatta. It produces great surface video at our boat club's lake, but the visibility is unfortunately very limited underwater there so it'll be great to use it in the nice, clear pool instead.

I look forward to catching up with you again in a couple of months!

Canberra regatta

Brad,


That sounds fantastic. It would be good to get some more underwater video.

If I gave you a blank VHS Cassette when I see you in Canberra could you take it home with you and record all the underwater action? :wink:

regards,

david H

Hi David,

I've e-mailed you a bunch of stuff regarding the video camera etc. I'm sure we'll be getting some great footage!

Guys,

I'll be taking a few extra ATC cameras to Canberra with me for anyone who's interested in trying one.

I'm planning on mounting 2 of them on my Type IX, U-861. One in front of the conning tower (where I've normally got one) and one behind the conning tower, pointing back over the stern. I don't want to miss anything this time!!!

Dave
All the very best

Dave,

I'd love to try one of your cameras! I'd stick one on the back end of my chinese SSBN "Xia" pointing forward. I'd also stick one on one of my swedish "x" fin boats pointing back towards the Minisub (URF) coming along for the ride....

That would be way cool..... :shock:

Hi David H,
what are you bringing?
I should have Orion working and the camera connected.

Have you got the WTC motor / g/box and sc working? Sorry noticed you flick me an e-mail a while back, but the inbox got wiped in some careless cleaning.

John,


I'm bringing a video camera this year and it's going to be going paparazzi on your Orion. I really have a soft spot for the O boats and I'm going to be filming it..

I'm bringing,

Swedish Gotland SSK
Swedish Sjoormen SSK
Swedish Rescue sub URF (Bolts on back.)
Chinese Type 092 XIA (PLAN SSBN)
USS Alaska Ohio Class SSBN.

I'm sorry to hear of the demise of Rankin, been there done that. Expansion can be a killer. Look forward to catching up.

I've had to send my WTC to john D in queensland after some serious electricl aproblems. He's solved them and we should be good for canberra.

regards,

David H :wink:

I'd like to give a HUGE THANK YOU to Gwen & Karl Maurer and Allan Collins for an absolutely terrific weekend at the Sub Regatta in Canberra last weekend. Everyone had a great time and a hell of a lot of fun with, what looked like 20 or so ATC cameras mounted on subs. The footage from the weekend will be amazing and I'm sure that there will be heaps of photos and video to follow very shortly.

Again, I thank you Gwen, Karl and Allan.

Dave
All the very best

CASWELL INC bringing submarine stuff to Australia

Postby kazzer » Tue Jun 03, 2008 8:26 pm

My brother Paul is here with me in the USA for a couple of weeks and we're trying to work out the best way to ship product for him to carry in Australia for you.

If you would like to see specific models or components held 'in stock' in Melbourne, please let me know. We are hoping this move will reduce freight costs and make product more readily available, but I need a list to get this going.
