What a beautiful boat! I was just thinking that it would be nice if Trumpeter came out with a "smaller" scale to convert, but then I realized that this sub is only 49" long. I guess I'd been following the 1:72 Seawolf too closely and was thinking this would have been a monster, too.
My first "trainer" sub is a Trumpeter Seawolf and I was thinking about a larger WWII sub (Type VII, Gato, etc) for my second, but I do believe this will be my second boat.
I'll be back...
