Ahoy Mateys,
U46, 7 inches long, 2 plate hull, screw cap tinplate clockwork diving submarine. The fin on this was made from an old brass light fitting. Its mental in the water and impossible to steer in a straight line but hilarious to watch. Smallest spring motor iv'e ever built and as usual made from the contents of the light green wheelie bin. cheers MacTin.
