Skipjack Model Kit Description

Our DeBoer Hulls model faithfully captures the detail and hull lines of the real Sculpin. She is still classified today, but available plans, and numerous pictures were studied to gather every last detail possible. Our model has all the torpedo tubes and torpedo loading doors molded in. Top deck detail is painstakingly scribed and molded to show vents, safety track and other details. The sail is rich in detail as well, with every inspection hatch, water-tight door and windows in place.

The main hull separates into upper lower halves to make R/C installation easy as possible. The hull halves are held together with a unique system whereby the screws are recessed under the escape hatches, giving a no compromise realism to the buttoned-up model! Hull construction is laid up using mat and cloth to give the most durable hull possible. 10 built-in bulkheads give the hull a superior dimensional stability.

Wall thickness is .080 or thicker, with a beautiful gel coat adding smoothness to the hull. The dive planes are solid molded resin with brass shafts. The 4 periscope shears are also molded resin and vented so you can attach air vent lines for your ballast tanks.

The 1/48 Scale DeBoer Hulls Sculpin is 63 inches in length and has a beam of 8 inches, allows plenty of room and accessibility to make R/C installation as easy as possible.
