Doyusha I-171 Japanese Submarine - Motorized, 1/400, 1-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$48   

Older kit that is designed to operate in water. Measures 10 inches long when assembled. Features a metal weight to achieve neutral buoyancy, movable diving planes and a rubber band motor with winding handle. The kit is molded in dark brown/gray (above the waterline) and dark red (below the waterline). Includes a static display stand also. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. No decals are shown on the instructions, so I believe that Doyusha did not issue this kit with decals. I-171 lead a very active career from Pearl Harbor, Midway and beyond. She was diverted to supply duty and was depth charged and sunk on one such mission by DD-472 USS Guest and DD-475 USS Hudson, 1 February 1944, off Buka Island.

LS Kaiten Miniature Submarine Kairyu, 1/72, B201-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$79   

Rare. One of only 8 ship kits ever issued by LS. The original kit dated from the 1960s; this may be the second issue and appears to be from the early 1970s. Operating model can be powered by a rubber motor which is included or the 'power egg' that attaches to the underside (not included). It appears to have a sort of automatic diving system - the diving planes are shown to move and there are clearly buoyancy chambers and free flood areas in the hull. Activation of the rubber motor is by the periscope. Kit is nicely done and includes two torpedoes that mount on the lower sides. Inside, the kit is like new. It has not been started. All small parts are still in the factory sealed bag, the metal parts, glue and rubber band are in a smaller sealed bag. The upper hull (molded in dark gray) was never factory sealed. Other parts are molded in red and dark gray. The kit has never been started. Decals and instructions are included; the instructions are on the inside of the box top.

Heller Submarine Cruiser NN3 Surcouf, 1/400, 1074

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$39   

Still factory sealed. Surcouf was a huge 360 foot long submarine cruiser with twin 8 inch guns, heavy AA guns, torpedo tubes for two different diameter torpedoes and a seaplane/hanger. The advanced design had a range of 10,000 miles but experienced many important teething and design issues. Due to this fact, she was the only ship of her class. Her fate is unknown except that she was probably sunk in the Gulf of Mexico. Very finely molded full hull kit. Includes seaplane.

Novo Techna Soviet M Class Submarine, 1/400

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$12   

Ex-Soviet Union kit that is very well molded for that time with very fine detail and hull drain holes. Full hull model measures 4.5 inches long when assembled and includes display stand and decals. The kit has never been started. The parts are either inventoried complete or still in the internal factory sealed bags, which is attached to cardstock that is folded in two. At times the factory workers had to get pretty creative because of a shortage of staples. Beyond staples, I have seen the bag of parts attached with tape, a clothing snap, a rivet or even sewn on with thread! This M class kit even has a color painting guide on the back with English colors.
