This one may be a rarity so here it is for the gallery, the Lindberg LSD-26 USS Tortuga. I'm uncertain of the scale but the model is about twenty inches overall length and the real vessel was between five and six hundred feet long. The model is motorized with twin screws which propel the replica in a nice lazy circle owing to the lack of counter rotation.
