That is a big advance on anything I have Doug! HUGE thanks!
Also, it has been a couple of years since I last visited the RN Submarine Museum at Gosport and I can't locate the photos I took there. They had several superb model
s on display
, including the one shown below (not my photo).
In the background is the famous paint
ing of the launch of HMS Dreadnought, but can anyone recall whether the model
is also HMS Dreadnought, or one of her half-sisters (Valiant or Warspite, both 20ft longer), or another boat?
