USS Bonefish

Recommended Posts

This was a quick project for a friend of mine.  He was the torpedo man on this ship.  The USS Bonefish was a submarine concept design built in 1958 commissioned in 1959.  It did a lot of patrols and training missions in Pacific in the 1960's through the 80's.  It caught fire when water got into the batter compartment.  Three crew members were killed and the ship was scrapped soon after.  

I don't have a real build log for it.  It was a quick and easy build.  I found photos online and drew my own plans.  From there I built it coming out of the water which is what my friend wanted.  In all it took about four hours to complete.  At the time I took the pictures I didn't have a stand for it.
