Very good! However, and I don't mean to impugn (sp?) the sub you served on, but "Plunger"? Was it named for a person, or for the fact that it could "plunge" to the depths of the ocean? I keep thinking of the device used to open stopped drains....

Great job! Always fun to see how others build the same kits that you do. I love this shot:

Makes it look a mile long!

Looks like naming your ships for something runs with this line. I named mine the USS Alexander, after my little cousin who died recently from cancer.

Miss you, buddy.:cry:

As stated by Guess Who, submarines use to be named after
fish (a long standing tradition, recently broken as too many
have). Plunger was the name of SS-2, SS-179 and SSN-595
(my boat). The Plunger Tribute Page can be found at:

Sorry to hear about your loss Prince of Styrene II. :(

Thanks for all the kind words. If anyone is interested,
I just updated with more pics of the Scout and a couple
of my old Buck Rogers Maurader.
