Mini Marusan Sub

Andy and I satisfied an urge to model today with the completion of a tiny replica kit of the SSN-571 Nautilus. When completed it is about five and a half inches long. It is shown here with a GMK Godzilla gashapon, in a loose recreation of the scene where the big G is first discovered. We got a set of these mini-models, which includes the JASDF North American F-86D Sabre Jet Fighter, as well as Godzilla, Baragon, and Ebirah. Although very small, the sub was easy to work with, snapping together quickly, requiring no glue and just a little bit of trimming. We also like the artwork on the box. Thanks to the folks at Extreme Collectables for making these available at a very reasonable price.
