from "Star Wars - Episode 1: The Phantom Menace" (1999)
About the Design
Like all Gungan technology, the "bongo" submarine has a distinctively organic look to it, resembling a cross between a manta ray and a squid. According to Lucasfilm, the subs were organically "grown" and were equipped with shields that protected the passenger compartment even at enormous depths.
About the Kit
One of AMT/Ertl's last licensed "Star Wars" kits produced in the 1990s, the Gungan submarine was a simple "snap" kit that actually built up into a pretty impressive model. The kit was released only briefly in early 2000 before going out of production.
This model was built from an original issue.
