A green Vanguard submarine

Recommended Posts

A green submarine? Oh well, I've heard of four gentlemen living in a yellow submarine, and seen a film of a pink submarine (USN). I guess a bit of colour variety doesn't hurt. But seriously, I greatly admire those that deploy for so long, and the sacrifice of their families too. I don't think I could do it.

Regards, Jeff.

Anything below the waterline but above maximum beam would be green because it would still be alive. The stuff you see is brown because it is out of the water and dead. Everything below max beam is just black.

How would you replicate that on a scale model?

Quite easily.

Well if the army can drape itself in local flora for camouflage then why not the navy?

Why not indeed.


Here are two scratch built models of submarines of the Pea & Oh line.

Pea class subs 1

In the foreground is a small coastal sub, mainly used for training. Behind it is a slightly larger sub used operationally. The mottled hull indicates the severity of the depth-charging it has survived.

I spared no expense on the materials used on these models. 🙂


Sorry, I'll get my coat now and see myself out. 🙂      Regards, Jeff.
