1/96 scale USS Permit class (SSN-594)
First launched in 1962, the SSN-594 Permit class were the world's
first modern, quiet, deep-diving fast attack submarines, integrating
a hydrodynamically shaped hull, bow mounted sonar array and advanced silencing
features. Permits established the design pattern of all successive
American attack submarine classes. This kit accurately duplicates
the sleek lines of the original. It's size and simplicity make it an ideal
first kit for new r/c sub modelers.
