  1. I'm joining with Flagship Models' 1/72 USS ALLIGATOR. This was the US Navy's first submarine. The design by Brutus de Villeroi was unusual. It used oars for propulsion, had a snorkel with an air purification system, and an airlock for a diver. She was launched in May 1862. Her first sorties were to take place in June 1862, but were cancelled when the conditions were judged unsuitable for operations. By July 1862 the oars were replaced with a hand-cranked screw, raising her speed to 4 knots. Her next sorties were to take place in April 1863, but she foundered and sank during a storm off Cape Hatteras while being towed to Charleston, SC. Here's the starting bits. 22 resin parts, chain, brass wire, and plastic rod. Those are some serious rivets! But, they look appropriate to the era. The model portrays ALLIGATOR in her as-launched oar-powered configuration. Some serious clean-up is in store... I built Flagship Models' 1/72 CSS HUNLEY some years ago. The kit built nicely Here's my interpretation of HUNLEY's spar torpedo:
