Most desired kit/model?

Place for general submarine conversation

I have just a few ideas for you for a new kit. There used to be a TV show called SeaQuest DSV. I loved it! Sadly it is not on anymore. It was about a futur type sub that looked really cool! Also an acurite R/C Model of Disenys Natalis. Next I have to say an R/C kit of the HMS Titanic! I can't find one on the net. I have no idea about what scale but so long as they are highly detailed! Next, how about a Russion Osscer class missle sub, or a 1/64 scale seawolf! That would be great! Good luck with your kits and Keep the subcommittee posted.

Verne's (as opposed to Disney's) Nautilus. Scaled to around three feet long. Somewhere on this site somone has plans available. Can't find them, but they're there.

Hi Seawolf

the pics above show "Le Redoutable" entering its rest place in the Cherbourg museum for public display.
Its the only one SSBN displayed to the public in the world.(for the moment :) )

A must see!

I must apologize. I was speaking of the Vanguard. No matter what flag she sails under, she is an ugly boat.

Ben, you'd better watch what you say here. Last week, I made reference to something someone said and I was emailed by another SubCom member and likened me to " arrogant #######..." The politically correct seem to forget that we have rights to voice our opinion. By the way, I think it's an ugly boat too! :p

I work aboard the USS Blueback in Portland, Oregon as a Tour Guide. SO you could say I have a bit of a bias. I AM looking for a static model of the Barbel Class Sub. Small World Models makes a really nice RC sub, but thats out of my range. I'm just looking for a static model for now. I am also trying to get one for the Museum we are attached to. I plan on building a display to help increase interest in our sub. So if any of you are ever in Portland. Come see US!OMSI USS Blueback SS-581 Site

Ray ,

Just for your information, I was just joking with Ben...I guess he had understood. I hope you are not thinking I judge people or I want to be "politically correct "...and I hope your post was not serious mine were. :D :p

Wow - this is great market research - been looking up some of these ships and find so many choices - so little time - I appreciate everyones comments and will continue to see what people post - most importantly I'll post progress - slow as it may be at first.

I've always thought the Vanguard is a very good looking boat. Looks menacing, kind of remeniscent of a conga eel!

Anyway I have castings of one, so guess I'm biased! :)

I would like to see some more non-military subjects modelled, sci-fi and research subjects. I'm surprised noone has had a go at modelling any of Graham Hawkes Deep Dive prototypes!

My all time favorite hull kit is the Scale Shipyard 1/32nd type IX. I first had seen this model built by Mike Dory on the SubCommittee tapes in Vancouver Canada. When I was watching the tape and seen Mike shoot a torpedo out of his sub, I dang near fell out of my chair!!! That was the "COOLEST" man toy I had ever seen. :D Well you got it, I had to have one... Still my favorite model sub. Get yourself a U-Boat, the graywolf of the sea......... Jeff sc#258

Hi Terry, I'm agree with u, a SeaQuest subs kit will be great :D
btw, about Oscar class, I know that Revell, Zvesda has produce the full hull version of Kursk (1/350) (Oscar Class subs), Tamiya has the water line version 1/700.

For Seawolf, I would like to see the 1/64 but then maybe for the mean time I will be satisfy if a 1/350 or 1/700 kit was produce :D

Have to agree with someone else about the Deep Flight. Also the Britain's M1 would be interesting.
