    With the Japanese advance to Java in 1942, the K-IX escaped to Fremantle and was subsequently stationed in Sydney. Later she was commissioned as a unit of the Royal Australian Navy, and named HMAS K9, the hull was converted to carry diesel oil. The ship ran ashore at Fiona Beach on 8 June 1945 after slipping the tow of its transport, Hr Ms Abraham Crijnssen, on a voyage to Brisbane. The wreck was bought at auction in July 1945 for £985, but overall salvage efforts failed. In 1977, that part of Fiona Beach was officially renamed Submarine Beach in honor of the lost vessel. Today, the K-IX wreck is buried under several meters of beach sand, having been rediscovered in July 1999 by a maritime archaeological survey.

    Very nice model. Is this a modelling kit or selfmade?
