BRAND NEW 1/350 SCALE U. NAVY VIRGINIA CLASS SSN GENERAL DYNAMICS ELECTRIC BOAT SOLID WOOD RESIN DESK TOP DISPLAY SUBMARINE MODEL WITH WALNUT AND METAL STAND AND ORIGINAL FOAM PADDED FACTORY SEALED BOX. The Virginia class are nuclear-powered fast attack submarines (SSN) in service with the United States Navy. The submarines are designed for a broad spectrum of open-ocean and littoral missions. They were conceived as a less expensive alternative to the Seawolf class attack submarines, designed during the Cold War era, and they are planned to replace the older of the Los Angeles-class submarines, twenty of which have already been decommissioned (from a total of 62 built). Painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany wood and resin composite materials, by The Toys & Models Corporation’s (TMC). Their skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail have hand-carved and hand-painted each model airplane, with great concern for exact accuracy. This 1/350 – Virginia Class SSN Submarine Model the definitive version of the U. Navy – makes a great gift for any naval military buff or history fan. The model measures approximately 12.75″ in length, has a 1.75″ beam and includes a display stand with a mahogany base. The item comes from a non-smoking environment.
