The SubCommittee is a not-for-profit organization of
members from around the globe who share an interest
in building model submarines. As a group we are dedicated
to the advancement of the submarine modeling hobby.
In pursuing our shared interest in submarines we compile specific information on the latest techniques for building model submarines, both for static display and radio-control, reviews of model kits, and sources of modeling supplies. Our interest also extends to the history and design of submarines of all nations and eras, research and reference material about submarines, the collecting of submarine memorabilia and anything else submarine related.
Our members are some of the most knowledgeable submarine historians
around. They have served as consultants for museums,
authors, and film-makers. Our ranks contain former submariners
from several navies. We are proud to call the late submarine
legend Edward L. "Ned" Beach
a former member.
Direct contact between members by phone, email, letter, and our message boards is promoted. The SubCommittee is at its core an information network of friends helping friends. Additionally, it conducts an annual model submarine regatta, which is hosted in different parts of the country. To see what this regatta is like, see our image collections on Flickr.
The SubCommittee is a non-profit mutual-benefit group and is not affiliated with any vendor or model manufacturer.
