04/08/2021. U62. The Panettone Plunger. 15" Tinplate Clockwork Diving Submarine.
Panettone! Don't mind the cake, love the tin. U62 has a 3 plate dual compound curve linear hull, screw cap winding port and a 50ml dive tank just fwd of midships. Her keel is weightless, the trim provided by a 200g steel block in her bilge. The inspiration for this design came from the early German Marklin submarines, I have yet to acquire an original one for my collection since they are rare and devilishly expensive, so I will have to stick to cranking out my own from bin fodder.
