1/350 Toms Modelworks Baloa (Bowfin / Pompanito) and Gato (Wahoo 1942 or Bluefish 1942) Submarines
Resin Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Includes both kits. The Baloa class model allows the builder to create several different subs within the class; the reference used was the Bowfin SS287 and Pompanito SS383 which are both museum ships. There is a personal letter typed and signed by Tom that explains that these kits were to be sold at the museum gift shops. The kit is full hull cast in resin. It is very highly detailed down to the drain holes and very fine decking. It includes resin detail parts and an extensive PE fret as well as full instructions. There are two hulls present for the Baloa, but one only set of resin and PE. The Gato kit can make one of two versions, the 1942 Wahoo or early cut down sail Bluefish 1942. It is also a full cast resin hull that is beautifully done. There are resin parts to 'make a generic Gato' also and extensive PE details with full instructions. The kits have never been started and are complete.
