Ahoy Mateys, 1918 Bing tinplate clockwork submarine restoration.
Only got the hull, no motor,superstructure or rudder so all that had to be made plus hole filling and dent removing its been an interesting project,much easier building my own from scratch! I'd say it was 70% original and that's good enough for me.
Cheers. www.mclarenclockworksubmarines.com

Hilary Kay from the Antiques Roadshow would enjoy your restored Bing sub! I don't see any dive planes, was it intended to be able to submerge?

Hi alan, the only pic I could find of the boat was this, there are no planes on the rudder of fwd? so either they've been broken off or they were never there? I know they did make just surface runners. Neil.
