    I completed the last handful of Vikings and added a courtyard to my Icelandic farmstead. There’s even some bonus pictures of a First World War gun in Scarborough on my blog:

    More Vikings is always good. I like them and your turf houses. The sub in a bottle reminds me that I really need to build the submarine on wheels pulled by dinosaurs for a lost world scenario that I came up with.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    I have some concerns over the submarine model.

    It can’t be HMS Sea Wolf as this was an S Class Submarine commissioned in 1935 and sold in 1945 and no doubt long decommissioned.

    It can’t be a US Navy Sea Wolf Class unless the date is wrong as this class was at the design stage in 1986 and the first of  class only launched in 1989.

    If it was based on  a misdated photograph it is unlikely to be a Seawolf class boat in any event as the periscope/antenna array was vertical and not cranked as in this model. Indeed I am pressed to think of any post WWII boats with this type of probe arrangement.

    One begins to wonder if the model is entirely accurate.

    The sea however is well produced and the colour a fair attempt at Western Approaches grey.

     

    The Vikings are great

    Thanks chaps. Guy, you are correct to have concerns about the submarine. I should have raised them with the museum staff and they could have removed the offending article. Unfortunately, it still sits there, making a mockery of the visitors. 😀
