Future Fleets Models

The first of a new series of 1/1200 models arrived at Antics yesterday and was recognised instantly by the younger generation of staff. It was a waterline model of the submarine Seaview from the 1961 film starring Walter Pigeon as the eccentric commander of the submarine in the "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea". This film had a TV spin-off series too and I suspect that publicity accounted for familiarity with the ship. The maker tells me that there will be afull hull model and a model breaking the surface at a steep angle following during the next few weeks. I have uploadeda photograph on the Antics website and I will have examples with me at the Theale Show.
