I don't think I've ever seen a Finnish sub before and this one is a real looker!

There were a few submarines in the Finnish Navy in 1930s and '40s.

a brilliant build Geoff, was great seeing it on the table at Telford (i was soo tempted to steal it and put it on the Finnish SIG table to see if anyone would comment, hehe !) just the thing for a hypothetical NATO. Finland scenario, cool, was neat seeing a 'what if' Merivoimat subject too  8)

cheers, Joe

Thanks Joe - I am trying to work out what to do as a Merivoimat Warpac ship. I don't think it can be a sub as I recon the ban would still be in force. I think I have a Tarantula somewhere that might fit the bill.   ;D
