S Boat **** Up
I realised yesterday that I had mis-labelled four of my ex-Skytrex, now Heroics and Ros models as S26 class boats instead of earlier S9 types with the unenclosed forecastle. I don't know how this happened but I've now corrected it by re-labelling them all as pre-S26 class boats, which in their various marques looked like the classic Airfix E-Boat kit of my youth. They are now useable up to about 1941, so perfect for East Coast convoy raiding and escort duty off the Dutch coast. I've labelled them in the range 18 to 25 as the models have torpedo reloads which were carried on these boats during the war. Phew!
