1/72 LS Kaiten Miniature Submarine Kairyu
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG-
Rare. One of only 8 ship kits ever issued by LS. Dates from the early 1960s. 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 with LS header, the metal parts, glue and rubber band are in a smaller sealed bag with LS header and the upper hull (light blue) and lower hull (red) were never factory sealed. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.
