Product Description

The fleet submarine of the United States Navy during World War 2. This six layer cutaway is so finely detailed that museums have given their stamp of approval.

The framed size is 22.5" wide by 8.5" high.

Natural Basswood finish is mounted on a Baltic Blue matte with a cherry finish frame.

Brass and Silver finishes are on a black matte with a black frame.
