JAG Collective
1/700 USS Skipjack Class Submarine

Reviewed by Timothy Dike

JAG Collective well known for their cold war waterline ships, also has several submarines available. This one is of the Skipjack Class Attack Sub.
This kit has three complete subs in it. Each one consists of the hull with separate fins. It is a waterline kit and has no lower hull. Periscopes are not included so you will have to scratch build your own out of plastic rod and wire.

There are no instructions in this kit, so you will have to consult your references for details on where to attach the fins. The sub itself looks accurate enough based on the photo's I have seen of her. But sure could use a simple profile drawing showing where those fins go.

This is a nice little kit, it is simple enough to be built in an evening or two. If you make a mistake, don't worry there are two more just like it in the package. This kit has a retail of $15.00, that's only $5.00 per sub. A pretty good value even without instructions.
