One of my other hobbies is collecting little metal model ships. One of my friends lives in Plymouth and took these pics of an
Astute class going into Devonport. Looking at the pics reminded me of the opening sequence in "Hunt for Red October". In fact the Astutes do look very Russian?

“What was the Captain saying to you?”
“Dunno, some confusing stuff about Christopher Columbus in a strange Scottish/ Russian accent.”

I didn't know you were Scottish, I thought I was doing great with you (apologies to Dudley Moore in ARTHUR

Was intended as a reference to the end of the movie (a guilty pleasure); Sean Connery played a very Scottish Russian Captain :)
