been looking at Stingray to see if theres any clues for the circular roof piece, there looks to be one on the rear of this boat. its approx 2 inch diameter.

may not be a kit part, and in Stingray they didnt use anywear near as much kits as they did on Thunderbirds.

I wondered if it was something as simple as a strip of Plasticene, straight out of thepack, wrapped around a tube

I think you could be right Mike. I think Plasticene strip would be way to thick Hawk. I was reminded of those wire bag twists.

thinking about it a bit more, Id be pretty sure they used something plastic, maybe a plastic vending machine type white cup or vacuum cleaner hose or something like that.

I looked at a small soup tin and it looked very close. I think the tins were different back in the early 60's. I think you could use a number of different things for this Mike and it would look the part.

yeah I think so too, its one Im not too bothered about unlike the fire engines, because its such a mix match of bits, but will still research it for a while before I start any work on it.

Hey Mike, just read this thread and have thoroughly enjoyed it. Where on earth did you find that toy BRM? Have you started work on the sub or are you still researching Like your fantastic fire tenders I can't wait to see the results. Would you mind if I post your BRM toy pic on my blog for readers who aren't members here?

Hi Mike, how did you go with this build ?

I know it's an older thread, but I'm curious as i like this very quirky looking sub.

Cheers, Michael

It's really good how Derek Meddings build his models and reused them again
