USS Jimmy Carter, SSN-23

Recommended Posts

This is the Hobby Boss 1/700 kit, very nice indeed. All I added was a couple of Eduard crew figures.

The base is polystyrene block so I could scoop out the distinctive wake pattern around the bow. I only used the upper half of the hull to make it waterlined. The rest of the sea is putty and white glue waves, acrylic painted, with gloss heavy gel for the water effect.

 

This is a unique Special Operations attack sub in the USN - its predecessor (USS Parche, a veteran Sturgeon-class SSN) became the most highly decorated ship in the US Navy history. Looks like a long and successful career awaits the Carter!
