This submarine was born an ugly duckling. It is the same size as the others at 9″ x 2″ but the upper deck is completely different. The ugliness of it is evident when the hull is examined. There is rippling in the wood on both sides of the hull at the bow and a bump on the side of the hull all due to the wood grain. This one must have missed the final sanding and the quality inspection. Despite the flaws I had to own it due to the design variation.
