Constructed by Turks Shipyard, this large remote-control model miniature was used for underwater exterior shots of the submarine.

Four air tanks, a hydraulic control mechanism and ballast tanks are housed inside the piece, with an engine fitted towards the back and the base of the model is hollow.

Due to being stored outside for many years, the submarine displays signs of wear, including paint wear, missing decals and signs of the wood weakening at the top. The model is missing aerials, plates at the stern and the submarine’s propeller cap.
