Yellow Submarine RGB Floor Light
Everyone calls this the yellow torpedo that we’ve converted into a modern floor light. With the option to set the colour of the light these are really very cool floor lights that come with a remote control to operate them.
They are originally the engines off mini yellow submarines. Each unmanned mini sub had two of these for propulsion. This range of mini subs were made by ECA,? pioneering French company who made the first unmanned subs for sub sea exploration in the late 80’s / early 90’s.
Interestingly there is even a whiskey named after this unmanned sub, called of course ‘yellow submarine’, there is also an interesting blog about how the whiskey came to be named after it involving US spies and a Scottish dockyard of course.
We’d forsee them being floor lights for an uber cool hotel but could also work in a bar or modern home. We’ve also been told that the electrics in these could make them extremely valuable to a mini sub company or enthusiast so we’ve kept in tact all the electronics as well.

Our aim at GB Salvage is to create stunning industrial furniture made with parts from planes, boats, subs and heavy industry. This aim inevitably means we buy a lot of stock that is very time consuming and costly to convert into finished furniture. Therefore in this category you will find parts and components. You can then ask us to convert these items for you or we’ll happily help you do it. Alongside rusty parts we haven’t yet had time to convert, you’ll also find our finished projects. We have a range of beautiful seats, tables and mirrors.
We hope that showing our raw materials will help inspire project and furniture ideas you’ll want to discuss. As you’ll see we also sell the components ready for conversion.
Under certain circumstances, we also offer a rental service for film companies, sets, props and one off events. So please get in touch if you’d like to come and see all our stock and discuss a project.
A range of military parts sourced from the MOD ranging from a small cog right up to missile bases, bombs and 6m long fuel tanks. We focus on British military goods but do occasionally find foreign military pieces of interest. And we also specialise in modern era militaria but do have the odd antique gunsight for example on offer.
We convert and restore every item we can but occasionally have to offer our components for sale to generate space. Therefore in this section you’ll find items we haven’t yet got to. We’d love to discuss your project idea and can convert items to your specification. We undertake work for private and commercial clients.
