and Now for Something Different

Here is something that goes. A Russian submarine. This was a Cobra class sub built in the mid 70's. NATO called it a Foxtrot. The Russians tried to make their subs sleek. This was about the last diesel class of boats they built.

The rear torpedo room. This tube was so rusty from a leaking outer door that it couldn't be used. Poor maintenance.

Captains small cabin. Enough room for Lenin.

Front torpedo room. Doing maintenance on one tube.

Engine room. Best shape of anyplace on the boat. You could almost eat off of them.

Diving controls. Hope it comes up as easy as it goes down.

You have some wonderful stuff here Mike. I love the Dymaxion and the models of town building.

Thanks for stopping by. My material is a little more varied than Mary's.
