Currently I am getting back into subs after a long absence. I am president of the NW R/C Ship Modelers and hope we can get some sub action going in the NW again. In the past I built a very nice 1/48 Balao from a SSY hull, a 32d Parallel Type XXIII and an old Engle Polaris (that was a long time ago). I also wrote several articles for the old Scale Ship Modeler magazine and did a lot of the old submarine special edition they did maybe 20 years ago - man I am getting old. Further dating myself I built a sub the old TV show MacGyver. Right now I have a Thunder Tiger Sub and am building up a 1/32 Type XXIII from the amazing Bronco plastic model. I also have another 1/48 Balao SSY hull, a 32nd Parallel Type VII kit complete with torpedoes, and am a Robbe Type XXI in 1/40 scale. I hope to have the Type XXIII done in a few months and the Type XXI later this winter. I live right on Lake Goodwin and have an excellent place to run right at home. In any case I have known Steve for many years and hope to meet all of you soon. The NW R/C Ship modelers has a meeting this Thursday evening (the 5th) at 7:00pm at Galaxy Hobby in Lynnwood if anyone is interested. I will have my Thunder Tiger Sub, my Robbe Sub ad the Bronco Type XXIII as show and tells.
