    10 pieces to put together. A waste of money!!

    As the title says, this is a very simple model. Frankly, it is over-priced for what you get. The assembly is not challenging, as there are very few parts to this kit. I find it funny that several reviewers lament the fact that there’s a “huge gap” between the missile deck and the hull, because there IS a gap between the missile deck and the hull — that’s how SSBN’s are designed, in order to allow flooding/draining of the missile deck (see this actual photo of a 598-class SSBN). Apparently those complaining about this “gap” apparently aren’t familiar with the actual submarine.

    Has huge gaps between the missile bay and the hull

    I got this model so I could create a display for A friend of mine in the Navy. For the price of the model I was expecting to get something semi-decent. However it is Not a great model. When gluing the pieces of the hull together I noted that there was a substantial layering issue. It requires a lot of sanding and detail work to make it seamless. Furthermore as stated by others there is a Large gap between the missile silos and the hull. I believe I will be able to fill them with plastic putty and make it work but I shouldn’t have to. Overall the price you pay for this model is not worth what you get.

    The model has less than 20 parts and they fit together properly. I just wanted a small model of the USS Theordore Roosevelt SSBN600 that I served on and this met my need. I thought it was a little pricey but then I should have kept the Revell model from all those years ago. The one disappointing issue was the decals. They are so small (which I understand) but they are individual by letter and number. In other words the hull number is 6, 0, and 0. Three separate pieces, not a single piece of 600. I couldn’t get any of the decals on the model and had to repaint the areas where I tried to apply them. Otherwise, I’m happy with it. On the boat we didn’t display our name or number. Draft markings would have been nice.
