Something a little different from my tanks. Bought it's from eBay from a chap that had ripped it apart rather roughly.

Here's how she was delivered:

Tom,
Beautiful salvage and restoration job on that Submarine! I really enjoy seeing something that has been abused or set aside, taken up and given new life. ;o) You have gotten subs down pat.
regards,
Painless
