Engel Gato - hull kit only - GREAT PRICE!

Engel Gato sub hull only. (NOTE photos of completed model taken from Engel's site and do not represent the actual model. Photos of kit contents are of the actual model)

The Gato class was one of the most innovative weapon systems of the U.S. Navy during World War II.

The SS212 was one of three submarines of this class that were to be built by the Electric Boat Company at Groton, CT.

The model features clearly defined vent holes, minute deck fittings, including radar scanners, periscopes, anchor, handrails and guns. The conning tower as well as many of the fittings and all guns are cast in resin. The minute details of the model and its awesome 6 ½ foot length are more than impressive …

The hull unit is made of glass fibre.

Kit includes:
• Lower hull, upper hull, bulkhead and pressure proof compartment made of glass fibre
• Conning tower cast in resin
• Rudder and dive planes cast in resin
• Complete set of fittings cast in resin (very detailed!)
• Assembly drawings

Technical Data:
• Scale 1/48
• Length 1980 mm (78")
• Width 170 mm (6.7")

Asking $650 plus shipping costs
