Re: Neptun ATLANTA class
I got one of the San Juan a few years ago...I think from Oliver Maertens. I remember asking Paul about it since it isn't an official Neptun model.
Interestingly, there has been a most definitely unofficial "Neptun" SAN JUAN out there for about 35 years. More than a couple have shown up on eBay every so often in recent years. It is of course very similar to ATLANTA. If memory serves the differences are slightly different radar fit, an extra quad 1.1" at the stern, and some other details just fwd of that mount.
The model is Neptun quality, is stamped "Neptun", but was apparently a bootleg issue. I believe I know the story, but do not want to impugn anyone 3rd hand.
