SC-I Class Sub-Chaser
WWI sub-chaser boat

With the increased use of submarines in World War I, an effective defence weapon was urgently needed and so the SC 1 class chaser was developed and built in large numbers. The SC-1 class was the first type of submarine chaser of the United States Navy. A total of 441 boats were built between 1917 and 1919 and were used in the First World War. A significant number of these boats were also ordered by France and protected the French coast; the large number of chasers quickly curbed the submarine problem. The SC class was extremely seaworthy and could be handled well even under the most adverse conditions. The boats were armed with 3 guns and a Y-bomb launcher, and the hull was made of wood in a frame construction. It was propelled by 3 screws, each with a 6-cylinder 220 hp engine.

The wooden kit contains all the necessary components precisely manufactured using the laser cut method. The frame is built overhead and planked with 3mm balsa mouldings. The fitting parts in cast metal quality and decor are included. Included are 1:1 overview plans and very detailed illustrated assembly instructions (69 illustrations), which make the description (520 construction steps) in English easy to read even with little knowledge of the English language. 

A shaft system of at least 220mm and a 3BL 40mm propeller are required for the drive, the rudder system is included in the kit.
