1/350 ARA Santa Fe (AFV Club)

The model represents the submarine ARA Santa Fe (S-11) in active service in the Argentine Navy during the 60's. This was a Balao-class unit (ex USS MACABI SS-375), given by the U.S., with her sail modified in Argentina to improve hydrodynamics and to make it similar to the Guppy I standard, applied before to the ARA Santiago del Estero (S-12). The kit used was the 1941 Gato class submarine from AFV Club, with a new scratchbuilt sail, painted with Tamiya acrylics and weathered with oil paints.
