Welcome to Mclaren clockwork submarines, this site is for anyone with an interest in tinplate clockwork models. All the boats on this site have been made using 100% recycled metals. They are designed and hand built by myself using only basic tools they are fully functional with custom made clockwork motors which I also construct from scrap materials . My submarines are fitted with an internal ballast system together with adjustable diving planes, this gives the boats a broad range of dive capabilities or they can sail just on the surface. For information purposes none of my models are for sale, this forum is to demonstrate what can be achieved with the minimum of tools, materials and a bit of English know-how.
