yellow submarine

Postby arthur barlow » February 17th, 2018, 12:40 pm

rare few hours in the workshop time to get the Yellow Submarine sorted out unfortunately the original Wing is buggered there's not enough lollipop sticks and gaffer tape to fix it and no time to building one time to look at the scrap pile for a wing and here we go not the use of an old glow engine for to get the Cg right and the model car wheels just for the fun of it and steerable anchor on the back

Well you will have to at least paint the wings to match, can't have the famous Yellow Submarine with blue wings its just not right.

They were left propped up in the garage, against the wall, wonder if they got water in them there? Still well worth the money though, like I said, Ron’s gone, bugger, still, least you got some free projects, wot 4, huge eurobat, supermarine dumbo keep you busy for a while, I will bring the dumbo nose cowl& spinner to the Haydock do,
