Fisher 1/200 Sturgeon Model

Static Submarine modelers unite!

Postby Jim Kerswell » Tue Nov 01, 2005 4:40 pm

Here is a model construction article from the Hyperscale website regarding a 1/200-scale Sturgeon from a firm called Fisher models. Can anyone tell me anything about them and where their models can be obtained?

The model buildup must be pretty easy as the author spends more time describing how he built the display base. I'm guessing that this is a resin model.

Paul Fisher folded up the submarine model line about 10 years ago. He still builds models, but they are for the much more lucretive car model crowd, with a few aircraft kits. These were resin kits, available in both 1:400 and 1:200 scale. Nice, but not necessarily the last word in accuracy, as the kit matsers are from the late 1980's early 90's, when many details had yet to emerge. IIRC, the original subs were made by the Slagle Bros. (??), and Paul bought the masters.

Here's the website:

Almost all cars, a handful of planes, and no subs. That kit has to be quite old. It looks as if the builder is unaware that he no longer makes submarine kits
