1:72 scale. This all-resin kit by Cottage Industry Models measures 11 1/2" long when complete. On the night of 17 February, 1864 the Confederate Submarine H.L. Hunley attacked and sank the Union sloop of war USS Housatonic, and became the first submarine in history to sink an enemy warship in combat. The Hunley disappeared after signaling her success to Confederate positions on Sullivan's Island, South Carolina. Her secrets remained lost until 1995 when her wreck was discovered, and later raised for study and preservation by 'The Friends of the Hunley'. This all resin model kit was designed from first hand observations and archeological measurements to create a truly accurate and magnificent finished piece for display. Experience with resin kits is recommended.
