U44 Tinplate Clockwork Diving Submarine by boaty Captain   Posted: 9 hours ago
Nostalgia aint what it used to be. The U44 model is excellent and it is so authentic. Remember the Sutcliffe toys back in the 50s, I think they also made a sub but not actually a scale one. Never had one myself but I did have the Bluebird which I think was Malcolm Campbell's as it was a lot different from the K7 which Donald had. I have a vague memory that Sutcliffes did bring out a later model of the Bluebird and I would like to hear from anyone who may have had one . Boaty😁

Great job.Must have taken awhile to shape the tin.How long does the clockwork motor run?Love to see it run if you post a video of it when it's finished.

Haha, not 20 feet down mate! 20 feet along, it dives to about 8 inches then when the motor runs down it surfaces. Ive had a look at the electronic wizzardry you guys make its incredible and way beyond me.Hats off to you all! brilliant stuff!

Magnificent, beautiful work, as ever👍 Do you ever sleep??? 20ft? How do you know? Did you follow it down with a tape measure? 😁 My Akula sub has a big tank and about half a pound of electronics in it to control the diving 😉 I will set it to max 2m (6 feet or so)! Happy Tin Bashing, cheers Doug 😎
