    Revell Skipjack for sale..

    Post  Tom(ADMIN) on Sat Sep 14, 2013 4:04 pm

    I have a brand new Revell 1/72nd scale USS Skipjack kit for sale if anyone is interested? It's still in it's original cardboard sleeve, it's never been touched, the box is unopened...I bought two with the view to making one into an r/c model and the other one a static version, but I just don't have the room to display such a large sub properly and keep the r/c one as well, so it has to go.

    £75 including postage.

    Hello Marius,

    I still have the Skipjack kit, it's still for sale...I did ask at the Post Office about shipping to Romania, they think it will cost between £20 and £25 to post to you. Is that ok for you?

    Certainly Marius...it's 42" from the tip of the propellor to the very end of the bows, and 5.5" maximum beam.

    (NOTE...these are inches, not millimetres)

    you can't have 56 inches, 12 inches = 1 foot, or 4 foot 6 inches

    or 127 foot 6 inches. opps missed the 1/8= .125,

    Correct...

    12" = 1 foot
    24" = 2 feet
    36" = 3 feet
    48" = 4 feet

    And so on...

    This may help you too, Marius...
