Ahoy Mateys, Definitely not a submarine, been raiding my recycling bin again with this one. Its an idea I had to mimic a riveted hull the tin plates are dotted with a hand awl prior to soldering I think its sort of worked???
Cheers Neil mclaren clockwork submarines.

Hi Doug, There's a youtube vid under tinplate submarines I did a while ago its U19 and U33, its hardly Ridley Scott but you get the idea I'd like to do a better one but I need someone that knows a lot more about doing this sort of thing to give me a lift editing and the like.
cheers Neil.

Thanks Neil, found it.😉
Interesting, but I was hoping to see what it does in the wet stuff; i.e. the Domestic Test & Trials Tank 😁

Here's a quicker link to the video

BTW; the vid after yours is interesting too 'How to make a submarine out of plastic bottles and Coca Cola'. And it dives!!😁
