- Newly tooled radar and antenna
- Two complete models of Ohio- and Los Angeles-class
- New molding for USS Chicago
The Cyber Hobby Orange Box line of 1/35 scale kits has proved a real hit with modelers thanks to its incredibly low pricing point. Now Orange Box is extending its reach into other scales and model lines. The first new combination to become available is a duo of 1/350 scale ship kits, and these appear at an amazing low-budget price. The Orange Box item in question is a pair of US Navy submarines an Ohio-class and a Los Angeles-class boat. The Ohio-class USS Maryland (SSBN-738) was commissioned in 1992 as a ballistic missile submarine. As a Trident D-5 nuclear-missile platform, it performs an important function as a strategic deterrence tool. The USS Maryland belongs to Submarine Squadron 20 (SUBRON 20) and is based in Georgia. On the other hand, the USS Chicago (SSN-721) is a Los Angeles-class submarine. Commissioned in 1986, the nuclear-powered fast attack submarine is based at Pearl Harbor in the Pacific Ocean.
The kit box contains two complete models of these different class submarines at a very attractive price. The 1/350 scale models are well-engineered, and modelers will find they fit together with ease. Each detailed boat comes with its own display stand so that owners can show off their finished handiwork. A new molding was realized for the USS Chicago in order to reproduce the sonar protrusion, plus new radar mast was created. Cartograf decals are also available to adorn the finished submarine models, including an impressive Chicago Bull marking for the bow of the USS Chicago. Modelers seeking to build up their underwater fleets will not want to miss this attractive bargain from the expanding Orange Box line.
