Part of the the model submariners display an Russian Alpha class, which was a fully functioning model remarkable for it’s small size .The water was almost ideal for submarines.

An unusual and serene on the water shot of the Imperial Russian Royal Yacht Livadia by John Hollis . Live steam provides the power .

Beautiful shot of an incredible model Dave, I've seen the model in the Glasgow Transport Museum but a live steam version is very impressive.

Hello doog good to hear from you . Yes the original builders model in the Glasgow Museum of Transport is simply outstanding and helped John enormously in his build.

There's some nice pieces in there, Dave... loving that Halifax Class, the Batch 3 T42, the T45, Alfa and the Typhoon - the submarines are just something else. I Love the Alfa and the Akula, they're just such sleek little monsters... and the Typhoon, well, who can't love that gargant of a submarine, unless they're on the other end of her missiles.

Hi Dan In the UK if you want to run live steam at an event you have to have a safe compound , keeping the public at a distance whilst you steam up. The same builder has a live steam model of the armoured cruiser HMS Kent .

The submarines are great to watch, you never really know where the boats are and when they will surface. Yes the Halifax class is a superb model and sails well. Most of the surface warships are to 1:72nd scale .

I think a trend is developing in the UK and seen at the Convention for smaller ships larger scales and away from the once popular large ships smaller scales . This Castle Class corvette HMS Flint Castle is a good example , although there are many more. There is also a strong trend for adding figures to give the model some life like appearance .

Once again seen at the Convention a good example of "manning the ship" and having a realistic effect is this superb t 1:32nd scale USN sub chaser .
