USS CAVALLA

SS-244 Submarine

According the Historic Naval Ships Association, USS Cavalla was called "The Luckiest Ship in the Submarine Service" because of her outstanding performance during her service in the last few months of World War II.  USS Cavalla amazingly sank 34,180 tons of Japanese shipping. Her greatest sinking, during six war patrols, was the aircraft carrier Shokaku that had participated in the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Recognized for the  extraordinary services, she was invited to be present in Tokyo Bay in September 1945 for the surrender signing aboard USS Missouri.

 
 

   

This USS Cavalla submarine model features:

- Real deck, not computer-printed paper (very difficult and time consuming to make.)

- Plank-on-frame, hollow hull construction (very important), weighing less than 12 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 40 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

- Portholes are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
.

- Intentionally painted and "rust"  appearance to portray realism of a steel craft "living" in seawater.
