  • Mobius Skipjack Starter Kit in 1:72 scale

    R/C Submarine "Starter Kit":


    The Skipjack class was a class of United States Navy nuclear submarines (SSNs) that entered service in 1959-61. This class was named after its lead boat, USS Skipjack. The new class introduced the teardrop hull and the S5W reactor to U.S. nuclear submarines. The Skipjacks were the fastest U.S. nuclear submarines until the Los Angeles-class submarines, the first of which entered service in 1974.

    The Nautilus Drydocks Starter Kit includes the vast majority of what you'll need to convert the superb 1/72 scale plastic model kit to full RC operation. The SNORT-configured SubDriver offers excellent control of the model and this configuration is perfect for reliable and safe operation of the boat. 


    NOTE: The actual model kit must be sourced by the buyer. This package DOES NOT include the model kit itself, which is widely available from numerous hobby stores online.
