Italian Human Torpedo SSB

About this model

Something Different.

The Italian Human Torpedo Type SSB "Maiale". 22 feet long with a 31.5 inch beam, 75 HP DC Motor, operating speed 4 knots. Maximum depth 25 metres.

Built during WW2 these submersibles were cheap to produce and quite efficient. The early model sank the Battle ships Queen Elizabeth and Valiant in Alexandria Harbour. Not bad for a 2 manned torpedo.

Our Model is 1/6th scale 44 inches long with a 6 inch beam. It will make a very nice dynamic diver or static model.

It comes with all relevant castings GRP hull and cowl, two used action man figures and a set of contra rotating propellers and shafts.
