A long-range, deep-diving submarine built to travel the oceans.
About this creation


The Silent Service of the E.R.R.M. was probably the noisiest on the planet, owing to its members' habits of tea drinking, cake eating and chatting. Despite this, it was very effective. Part of this efficacy was undoubtedly due to Llwyngwril Systems having no naval architecture department* and so the equipment was bought from a reliable manufacturer.



As per the requirements of Decisive Action 2, the submarine was equipped with a rotating periscope, a hatch which opened to reveal a big, nasty missile and a shrouded propeller on the stern.

The prop was powered by a heat engine which derived its heat from a zero emissions, infinite source, giving the boat an almost unlimited range. Drinking large amounts of diuretic tea meant that the crew had to go for frequent "bio breaks". The heat from this stream of effluent was used to power the boat's engine, whilst the waste water was cleaned and recycled to be drunk again and again and again...



Fans of my kitchen table will be glad to see its latest appearance in this MOC. Hiding at the back of this photo is my latest MOC, a space tug with a piece of SHIP that it is towing to the assembly line in orbit. I hope to photograph it properly soon!


* N.B. Llwyngwril Systems does however have a navel architecture department. It mainly designs "innies".

Exactly like I picture a yellow submarine should be! Love the eye... of course Darlka would also have loved to have seen it shielded by a shiitake mushroom cap! Oh, and that must be some kinda tea ceremony performed by the crew! ;)

Nice. Of course it's a yellow submarine. :-) I like this build, it's cheeky and fun. The little eye on the periscope is great, and the "power source" is as well. :-D

Excellent, David! Love how you shaped the hull, and how you worked in the obligatory eye in the periscope. The diorama is very effective. Curious as to how the naval architecture department got so far off track, seeing as how hulls are generally cobbled together from outies.

He he, just wonderful. The eye is awesome, with the banana in the background you might think you have the submarine form copied from the banana.

'navel architecture department' (collapses with mirth)....! Are you channelling Terry Pratchett? Great submarine by the way...

I don't recall living in one of those, but if everybody says so I guess it's true!? So confusing. Great sub by the way! Where's the tea tap?

In the town where I was born Lived a man who sailed to sea, And he told us of his life In the land of submarines. No doubt a Veteran of the war serving aboard this craft. Superb build!

This is substantial and sublime! Nothing sub-prime about this submersible. Then add in the subtext of symbolism that we all live in a yellow sub, we all are subject to human frailties such as bio breaks but have a near limitless potential energy that we regularly relegate to sub par activities...awesome social commentary.

Great work! I love the character and playability of this sub. The Red Spacemen prepare to dominate the underwater realm!
