Seven Trafalgar Class nuclear-powered attack submarines were commissioned for service with the Royal Navy. The submarines were built by Vickers Shipbuilding and Engineering Limited (VSEL), now known as BAE Systems Submarine Solutions. Trafalgar Class submarines are preceded by the Swiftsure Class and succeeded by the Astute Class submarines. The design of the Trafalgar Class is identical to that of the Swiftsure Class submarine. The hull of the Trafalgar Class is covered with the anechoic tiles to absorb the sound waves of sonar. This feature makes the submarine more difficult to be detected by active sonar. The Trafalgar Class is 2.5m longer than Swiftsure but has an almost identical internal layout. Equipped with strengthened fins and retractable hydroplanes to sail through thick ice, the Trafalgar Class design also incorporates a new nuclear reactor core and Type 2020 sonar. With five boats in commission and two retired, they form the back bone of the Royal Navy's nuclear-powered ‘hunter-killer’ submarine force.

Any service era or vessel configuration - We can build a model of them all - your pick.
We offer our Trafalgar Class Submarine Models in several popular size/scale offerings for easy ordering and selection. However, if you would like your model made in a size other than those sizes listed, please contact us with your request. Custom orders are our specialty!
Our submarine models are made-to-order, meaning that we do not stock any pre-made models. Only when a customer tells us the size and/or scale desired do we build the model. Each model is exquisitely crafted by our master model builders and comes fully assembled with a solid hull - hand carved from kiln-dried mahogany. Other parts are made from a variety of woods, putty, resin and metals. Every model includes pedestals, a polished mahogany base board, and a name plate. Options include keel block mounting, waterline models, ships seals and ribbons, and weathering paint schemes.
The model build time is generally 20 weeks from receipt of the order and deposit. The normal procedure is a 50% deposit with the commissioning, with the balance due prior to shipping. Note that prior to shipping, we take a series of photos of the model and send them to you for final review and approval – so you know exactly what your model will look like and allow for any necessary modifications. Once you have approved your model, we’ll collect the final balance and she will be shipped in a robust shipping crate and insured for your protection.
FREE SHIPPING in the USA - Note that our model prices include shipping and insurance within the USA.
Shipping costs outside the USA will depend on the model size ordered and shipping destination. You will be responsible for any applicable taxes or duties, based on the commercial invoice value for the model.
