While most of their product line is beyond my scope of interest this latest release from Moebius Models did get my attention. 


(Image source: Moebius Models)

Click on image to see product announcement. 

A 1/72nd scale model of the USS Skipjack (SSN-585) class nuclear powered attack submarine (kit number 1400).

The kit is now available for consumption from Squadron: 1:72 Moebius Models USS Skipjack - MW01400

As a 1/72nd scale kit this model is large enough for building as a remote radio control model or in Brian (da Basher)'s case one very large airship :)

Thatz right Jeff.
Going with Brian's school of upsidedown subs.
Looks good as blimp for that 1/72 diorama I dream of building some day or year.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this model was an airship. I blame Brian for that!  :P

The Skipjack would look good as a blimp as it has a distinct teardrop shape.
