I won this model from Cold War Submarines for sponsoring PCU OREGON to receive the American Submariner.

I had no idea those models were THAT expensive! Just looked up what it'd cost to have models of my two boats... $1700. 

Coincidentally, your SSN 595 models costs $595 retail.

Think about one of the Plexiglas boxes. I put one on mine to make dusting easier.
Walt,
Had I done everything right throughout my life, the World wouldn't have noticed.

I have a curio cabinet that it fits in to keep the dust off.

Finally put mine in a case. Missing a rudder and the decals are tired. Hope to repair and refurbish soon.
MINSY gave one to the plank owners, a neat keepsake that I am very proud of.
