1/350 Scale Surcouf French Submarine: Length: 12.25"
These models come already assembled and painted out of the box. There is nothing to do or needed other than take them out of the packaging and display them. They are constructed of mainly metal and plastic parts for the details.
These models are mostly made of metal with plastic parts added for details such as antennas, periscopes, rails, etc. The overall coloring and the details are very interesting, there are many grill marks accurately painted along with embossed hatches and panels.
These models come with a cutaway section that reveal interior details like piping, machinery and torpedoes. The cutaway section is limited to only one side of the model.
The model comes attached to a display stand. The base of the stand measures 4.75 inches by 1.75 inches. The display stand has a metal strip that shows the name/type and year of the model.
This is certainly not a toy. It will not last long if played with. The box is labeled as not recommended for children under 14.
The box measures 14.5" x 4" x 2"
Surcouf was a French submarine ordered to be built in December 1927, launched on 18 October 1929, and commissioned in May 1934. Surcouf – named after the French privateer Robert Surcouf – was the largest submarine ever built until surpassed by the first Japanese I-400-class submarine in 1943. Her short wartime career was marked with controversy and conspiracy theories. She was classified as an "undersea cruiser" by sources of her time.
