Don Wilson's Submarine

This immaculately detailed submarine is 18 feet long!

The Webmaster sincerely regrets that Don did not use yellow Meccano or that the Beatles can't rewrite their song!

Don's submarine was not modelled on any particular class.   It has two snorkel tubes, 2 inch in the stern and 6 inch in the bow.  If you wish to know more about WWII submarines, follow this link to USS Pampanito (SS-383) which has many further links.
