New Artifact on Display - Submarine Model

AIMM is pleased to announce the arrival and display of the first of three submarine models being produced by Cold War Submarines for the museum.

This first model shows Razorback almost exactly as she appears today, with her tall "North Atlantic" sail, which was installed at the San Francisco Naval Shipyard in 1961-62.

As you can see, the detail on this model is absolutely incredible.

A future model will show Razorback in her World War II configuration, complete with deck guns and exposed periscope shears. A third model will show Razorback in her "interim" guise, with the "step sail" installed in 1952 (and replaced with the "North Atlantic" sail).

Cold War Submarines specializes in building submarine models that are truely "museum quality".
