This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.

The Astute class submarine is the latest submarine in the British Navy, as of 2007. This huge submarine has an appearance similar to a whale, and is nuclear-powered, not requiring a single refueling over its 25 year lifetime. It is not unique in this regard, though. The Astute class submarine is built by BAE Systems at the city of Barrow-in-Furness, on the central west coast of Britain. The submarines will cost about $2.4 billion US Dollars (USD) each. The Astute class consists of attack submarines, in contrast to ballistic missile submarines such as the Vanguard class.

Kit has 2-piece full hull with engraved surface features, separate planes, display stand, photo-etch parts (hull fittings, screw blades and nameplate), plus a full array of periscopes, comms masts and snorkel. Completed model is approximately 11" long. Color painting reference displaying port and starboard profiles, overhead plan, bow and stern views - decals for hull markings.
