  • They were rattle can colours. The brand is White Knight and the colours were Manor Red and Herritage Red. Hope you can find them over there.

    • Thank you!
      If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

      • All the control surfaces are finished and she is ready for trimming and a swim in the dam (eventually).

            Just found this old screened photo. Ten little ROMEO's built for a defense contractor in the late 80's. Hand-outs to Egyption sub Captain's. (Russina designed, Chinese built, American up-graded, and operated by Egypt -- what strange bed-fellows populate the 'defense' industry). Ellie and I used to work the contractor display side of the street, then effects miniatures, and today, the hobby trade.

ID:	120022Spent this afternoon sorting out the SD. Almost there; just a few more connections and she will be ready for a trial run in the lake. Not the orange gas bottle in the SD - the lake is 30' deep. She's not coming back from down there without gas. Click image for larger version

              • Hi Scott,

                She looks fantastic, more photos please!!! We are packing up our house to move, I was going through some stuff and found your moulds of the Project 1910 "Uniform" I'll have to get them back to you. Love what you are doing with this little boat. Can't wait to see it in person.

                I have been asked to display my boats next Sunday 26th February at the Wyong CCARC Amateur radio field day at the Wyong racecourse. I'll be there from 8 am, pop in if you can..

                beautiful little boat boat you got there....

                regards

                • Beautiful looking boat -- likely what these old, out-of-date, nasty POS' look like when not all dolled-up for a dear-leader drive-by.

                  And that receiver. What's the matter, you couldn't find a crystal set to cram in there?! ........

                  You are a machine!

                  • I like the weathering you got going on there. Amazing looking boat.

                    • Thanks Mate. Its quite dark in the shed; the weathering doesn't look quite so dramatic in the sunlight (fortunately).

                          • I want a kit of this ROMEO. And I want one now! Who do I have to kill to make this happen?
