The kit uses simplified construction design and is very easy to assemble. The entire boat is laser cut, which guarantees minute details with accuracy to tenths of millimeters and very precise fittings of all wooden parts. The English-language instructions are supplemented with dozens of great quality photos showing the construction step by step, giving the modeler a complete reference when assembling the SUBCHASER AV-SC96.
U.S. Navy submarine chasers were designed specifically to destroy German submarines in World War I, and Japanese and German submarines in World War II. The small 110-foot (34 m) SC-1-class submarine chasers of the design used in World War I carried the hull designator SC (for Submarine Chaser). Their main weapon was the depth charge. They also carried machine guns and anti-aircraft guns.
Submarine chaser SC 96 served overseas from Base 25, Corfu, Greece, under the command of Ens. P. Springer, USNRF.
