New Yellow Submarine model

The original Corgi toy Yellow Submarine
Back in the sixties, the Corgi Toys model Yellow Submarine was produced, the toy car company had already previously dabbled in replicas of famous cars like the Batmobile, the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the 007 Aston Martin and the Saint's Volvo (they just painted their regular ones white and gave them a Saint logo). I never got it, I wanted a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Or a Batmobile. Finally got one, years later. Thirty years later, when Yellow Submarine was re-released in 1999, Corgi made replicas of their old submarine model. Variations of these are still available today.
Now there's a new version of the Yellow Submarine available from Factory Entertainment.
Coming soon - from Factory Entertainment
Their studio scale model of the Yellow Submarine is the culmination of detailed and exhaustive research into the titular submarine of the 1968 animated classic. It is the most detailed and accurate 3D model of the Yellow Submarine ever produced. An officially licensed Beatles product, this museum-quality model measures 20” in length and comes with a display stand, mirrored base and numbered limited edition plaque.
Manufactured from high quality resin and ABS components, the model incorporates a number of features:
  • Opening front and rear hatches that reveal specially designed ‘infinity’ interiors.
  • Synchronized rotating twin propellers 
  • Adjustable periscopes
  • Character portholes featuring John, Paul, George and Ringo as portrayed in the film.
