The description of it from the website...
Potentiometer of nuclear submarines for the hull has been designed with a hull of a World War II-type nuclear submarine still in the first American
It is a thing that it can not be said can exert completely Shall but brilliant in performance as a true submarine
I boasts a career.
I have achieved as well as the arrival of the remains was insidious first of the North Pole.
Same type ship is saved as a memorial ship now leaving many without data because it was an experimental ship
Has been.

I hope the model is more accurate than the description
Reminds me of that Simpson's episode with Mr. Sparkle...

A very good resin USS Nautilus, SSN 571, has recently been released by Blue Ridge Models, and is highly accurate. It is not that much expensive than the listed price of the polystyrene kit.

Yes, that description was quite entertaining... I have been interested in the BRM offering, but I never seem to find it in stock... Gotta jump on their Albacore and Gudgeon though. I need to sell off a chunk of my airplane model stash to finance it.

Probably Blue Ridge Models is a better choice detailwise, but price is very much higher. Shape seems fairly accurate.

Agreed. None of the angles gave me great concerns about shape errors, but the proof is having the kit in hand.
