1/400 1-200 Doyusha I-171 Japanese Submarine - Motorized
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
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 gray (above the waterline) and dark red (below the waterline). Includes a static display stand also. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags 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.
