  • US Los Angeles Attack Submarine 3D files 1:96 scale

    The Los Angeles class boats are nuclear-powered fast attack submarines (SSN) in service with the United States Navy. The submarines are also known as the 688 class (pronounced "Six-Eighty-Eight"), after the hull number of lead vessel USS Los Angeles (SSN-688). They represent two generations and close to half a century of the Navy's attack submarine fleet.


    This particular model was created with the invaluable help of a talented modeler in Canada. Look for more of his work coming very soon!


    The files are rendered in 1:96 scale, yielding approximate dimensions of: 

    Overall length: 45" (114 cm)

    Overall beam: 4" (10cm)


    This model was designed for fairly easy and straightforward assembly. Part locations are easily identified. Unlike some of the other subs offered for download on the Drydocks, this one was designed to open along vertical hull seams, utilizing a superb bayonet locking system. Splitting the hull this way ensures excellent alignment during assembly, and greater strength overall. 


    Internal bulkheads are designed to accommodate a 2.5” diameter watertight cylinder, such as the superb 250/250/250 MSD unit offered at here at the Nautilus Drydocks.


    Total print time for the prototype was 115hours at 0.2mm resolution and 15% infill.
