I live just a few miles from Cavite Naval Station which used to be a US installation before . The USS Sealion (SS195) was the first submarine victim of enemy action in WW2. She sustained damage after being bombed by Japanese planes on Dec. 10, 1941 and was latter scuttled to keep her from falling into enemy hands.
I would like to build a model of her. Would it be possible to backdate/convert Trumpeter's Gato into a Sargo class boat ?
