About the Japanese Submarine I-58 Late Version
The I-58 was laid down in Yokosuka Navy Yard in September 1944. The vessel carried a Type 0 small reconnaissance seaplane E-14 (Glen) and a catapult to launch it. The primary weaponry of the I-58 consisted of six torpedo tubes, three on each side of the bow. It also served as the mother ship for the Kaiten human torpedoes. On the night of July 30th 1945, it attacked the U.S. Navy heavy cruiser Indianapolis with a salvo of six regular torpedoes. Two of those struck the cruiser and she sunk about fifteen minutes later.
1/700 Scale Waterline Series
An interesting modeling concept is at work in these Waterline Series ships. Each kit depicts warships of various nations as they appeared during WWII. What is of special significance, is that as their name Waterline implies, the models are of the portion above the waterline. Therefore they can be placed on a flat surface and appear as they would on the ocean, with the draught portion omitted. What''s more, 1/700 scale permits collecting great numbers of them and using relatively little space. With over 100 ships in this series, it is perhaps the largest collection of its kind in the world.
