Revell Jacques Cousteau Calypso Ship Model Kit

 

jacques cousteau Calypso Model

 

A Revell plastic model of the Jacques Cousteau Calypso ship. The challenge of this kit was painting it.

It includes the helicopter, a shark cage, a shark, a couple of divers, and a submarine. The original Calypso was a converted WWII Minesweeper.

The rear hatch cover comes off and a yellow circular submarine fits in there. There is a slight bit of weathering, especially to the deck, which I did to the kit.

Overall, the model is about 12 inches long. It was a difficult subject to build for me, especially painting it, but it was also one of my favorites when finished.

Legend has it that the real Calypso was only painted on one side for filming by ABC because of cost, meaning, most of the time when it was shot on camera, you always see the one side of the ship. The other side was not painted as often, if at all.

Cousteau also used a Catalina Sea Plane in their explorations and travels. And there's a model of that plane as well.
