1:72 Gato class Sub

Recommended Posts

Revels 1:72 scale Gato. This beast is huge! It measures over 52 inches long. Before beginning the build, I researched other builds to make myself aware of any pitfalls or tips and short cuts. I haven't had a single issue with this build yet and would love to get myself one.

The stand is painted with a mix of Gunmetal and Stainless Steel for an industrial look. The Navy lapel pin is held on with a set of magnets so when Mr Gaca goes to his reunions, he has a nice pin to wear.

The stern assembly.

The bow.

This will give an idea on the size.

The bow planes are functional.

Awesome, can't wait to see more. I want to break out my Gato at some point and knock it out, but I have too much moving in my future to deal with it. I've got some good resources at hand if you have questions.

Cheers,

Dave

Yes indeed! Very nice. Didn't see this build, lurking beneath the surface. (see what I did there? LOL) Definitely looking forward to see this progress.
