Have you ever had a hobby that you enjoyed so much that you were prepared to pay top dollar to collect them? If you love submarines that much, then you can search for all kinds of model submarines, ready-made, for you to consider and enjoy. What kinds of wooden model submarines are found on the high-end market? Here are three examples of submarines you can find on the Internet fully designed for purchase.

What do you know about the Pampanito Submarine? It earned six battle stars during its service in World War Two. The submarine sank five vessels during its time in the Pacific. Her most remembered day happened on Sept. 12, 1944 when her and two other submarines came upon an 11-ship convoy and ended up sinking seven of them. The submarine helped in the collection and rescue of about 73 prisoners of war that were carried on these transports.

The Bushnell’ Turtle’ submarine was the first American made submarine built in 1776. The turtle submarine was designed to stop the British naval blockade going on in the New York Harbor while the American Revolutionary War was going on. The submarine was in a position to submerge into the water by enabling the water to go into the hull with only one man occupying it. It would resurface by pumping it out with a hand pump. It was powered by hand propeller and would go underneath its target and attach and clock detonated bomb to its hull. The bomb didn’t attach by a miscalculation of a British ship. Instead, the torpedo’s timer went off, creating a powerful blast. This forced the British naval ships further away from the harbor.

One Man Submarine??

This was a prototype design that gave inspiration to the vintage design for the World War Two submarine. Construction on this submarine type was hastened due to the requirements of the time. There were about 73 submarines built between 1941 and 1943. Most of the Pacific submarine force for the United States was of this design during World War Two. About 20 of them were lost during action. Once World War Two ended, the Gato Class 212 submarine never saw service again. They were completely withdrawn from action in 1969. You can see this class of submarines in certain museums.

Each of the three X-Craft would posess a diver, who could crawl out of the submarine to cut a gap in those underwater torpedo nets surrounding the Tirpitz. Two massive bombs called Saddle Charges were likewise carried by the submarine and would be dropped directly underneath the hull of the battleship.

You do not always have to build your own model submarines to get the full appreciation of what these babies used to do for the world’s naval forces. While these prices are examples of some companies, they’re a rough estimate of the type of prices found on these subs.
