I wanted to let folks know that the very complete kit of the NR-1 is now available for a $325 introductory price. You can also obtain the ocean floor base and clear cover as an option. Yes I know it is pretty steep for a display model but the price is only going to go up from here though. It will be expensive but it is so accurate that the Navy is using it as a training aid at Ships Repair facilities. There are almost 100 parts to the model, it is updated to the 2003 refit, has a beautiful etched brass sheet that Jeff Larue created from CAD drawings we sent to him, and a large instruction manual with color imagery of the model for reference.
If you have any questions please let me know. Our web site has a nice NR-1 section found at: http://www.fxmodels.com/NR-1.shtml
The model is also available as a finished display at $1250.00. It is a piece of work I have to say!
