USS CAVALLA

SS-244 Submarine

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.  

USS Cavalla was "The Luckiest Ship in the Submarine Service", According the Historic Naval Ships Association, because of her outstanding performance during her service in World War II. 

   

This USS Cavalla submarine model features:

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

- Superior 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.
