The submarine that came with this flat car was an unassembled kit with the individual parts held between the two hull halves that were secured together with rubber bands. The submarine must be unassembled with all of the parts, including the glue capsule, to achieve a like new grading standard. This submarine has been reproduced along with all of the kit component parts, with the exception of the glue capsule, so collectors should be cautious.
We’ve referenced the instruction sheet No. 3330-107 that came with this submarine kit that shows the parts that are needed to complete this kit. View the FRONT and BACK page of this document. There are two different instruction sheets that show a different service department address on the back page.
The submarine was also available for sale separately in its own box No. 3330-100 that is illustrated above right. There are no variations, although this submarine was issued on other flat cars. See: No. 3820, 3830, 6830.
