Hi. I have a Manta Submarines Sturgeon class SSN in 1/72 scale. It has all of the parts in the kit for RC use. There are planes for the sail, propeller (screw) and all of the tail control planes. I can send you pics if you need (I will have to take the pics first). The hull has (almost all?) of the various openings scribed at the (presumably) correct locations. A set of plans is included. I am asking $350 for this kit. This is a fantastic model in fibreglass. I have too many hobbies and kits going on, so I am scaling back on this.

I was in the Navy for six years as an Electronics Technician (ETN2) and nuclear reactor operator. At the Nuclear Power School, we were taught the S5W plant which is the basic submarine power plant for all of the early SSN's and SSBN's. I attended the A1W/A4W prototype in Idaho. I was on the USS Truxtun CGN35, which had two of the D2G power plants.

Please let me know if you're interested. I live in Alameda, CA. /s/ Barry Chinn

My first kit was a Manta Sturgeon. They were nice kits.

Thank you for your service!
Warm regards,
