Oh DAMN!

That's what I'm talkin about! :eek: :notworthy:

Glad I didn't buy that Skipjack----this is MUCH more interesting! :D

From what I've been able to gather,the kit should measure around 39" long,
with a 3 1/2" beam.

It should be available in the first or second quarter of next year.

I'll admit,I was tempted by the Skipjack,but it just didn't "sing" to me.It's just too.....modern.

The old WWII German and American boats have MUCH more character! :D

That's great news! :icon_thumright:

How about a review?
I'd be interested in your personal opinion of what's in the box.

My question is....

Will you build it straight away,or wait for the inevitable wave of
after-market detail parts?
