Hi there Dave,
The name is Bernie Watts, a very long time friend of Garry G, but someone who has moved around a lot. We moved from Tassie last year where I helped form the Tassie Devils model S/M group. Just joined the Subcommittee, although I have had access to the SCR almost since it started
Current models are a 6' Jules Verne Nautilus and a 5' USS Barbel 580 plus a 4'+ Fremantle Cl PB
Worked on Oberon build in UK and Oberon refits and Collins build in Aus, plus many years in Defence Canberra and build of Huon Cl M/Hunters in Newcastle
Currently live in a little place called Wolumla, between Bega and Merrimbula on the SE coast of NSW 0264949760
Trying to start up a model group in this area but not to much interest to date. Exhibiting at the Eden Whale Festival this weekend.
Have a large selection of ship and submarine drawings even some original AE class. A reasonable number being original old navy drawings.
Hope we can keep in touch
