The Cruiser submarine Type-B was a class of submarine in the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) which served during World War II. The Type-B submarines were similar to the Type-A apart from not having the headquarters installation. Type B1 (I-15 class) submarines were the most numerous type of submarines of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. The Type-B submarines were divided into four classes:
Type-B (the I-15 class)
Type-B Mod.1 (the I-40 class)
Type-B Mod.2  (the I-54 class)

Any service era or vessel configuration - We can build a model of them all - your pick.

We offer our Type B 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 brass pedestals, a polished mahogany base board, and a brass name plate.  Options include keel block mounting, waterline models, ships seals and ribbons, and weathering paint schemes.

The model build time is generally 24 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 - Note that our model prices include shipping and insurance.
