"RED OKTOBER,s" World Tour
« on: June 29, 2008, 14:03:04 »
...Hi Guys...

As most of you would have seen on Model mayhem, I am currently in possesion of "RED OKTOBER" which was built in America by toesup...

R.O. has been visiting lots of places around Glasgow recently...
Today R.O. was away to Rosyth Naval Dockyard on the River Forth as part of a display being put on by The Glasgow South Ship Modellers...
Here is a picture taken yesterday at Queens Park Pond in Glasgow as she is being expertly piloted around the pond by Wee Johnny...(Straight from his football match)...
I will post a thread of pictures of all of her visits later...

...All The Best...Norry & Wee Johnny...

Well it looks like Red Oktober is going to be heading south to sunny Spain. We are trying to arrange delivery from France, which may be by me driving up to collect her in late summer, early autumn or fall for those over the pond, to a delivery service in the next few weeks.

Once she arrives I will keep you posted, but am hoping to smuggle her over the border into Gibraltar, which has not been conquered in many a year so invasion is due!! :) :) :)

It could get interesting ...

Barry

For those who know nothing of her, if you follow this link the story will unfold..

Dan,

She was due to be heading down to me in Spain, but has failed to arrive. She is currently with "Roger in France" Depending on the weather I will be driving up to Normandy in January to see my son and may be able to collect her from him on the way back. Until then her activities remain "top secret"  :-X :-X

Did Red Oktober ever get to you Footski ? Or should I say, did you ever get to Red Oktober in France ?

Yes, I am afraid RED OKTOBER, failed to get the correct visa for entry into Spain so has made a temporary diversion towards the east..
