This torpedo was made for shots when the torpedo is in the water, and consists of an aluminium frame with metal and wood components and a functioning rudder. The eyes and jaws are hand painted at the nose of the torpedo, while stickers are used for the skull, with 'Professor Fate ‘decals on the sides of the body. The torpedo includes a dense foam horn mounted to the top and a hand-painted fin at the rear above the propeller. Additional stabiliser fins were attached to the body to help it move through water. Inside, the torpedo has a compartment which previously held the device's mechanics, with '#2' written on the lid, and '#3' on the base of the torpedo.
This prop torpedo is mounted to metal supports over a wood display base. The piece shows minor wear due to production use and age, with the sticker decals peeling off, but otherwise remains in very good condition. Dimensions: 325 cm x51 cm x 180 cm (128" x 20" x 71")
