1/400 05236 Revell Hawaiian Pilot C-3 Freighter
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
2005 reissue of the famous 'S' kit from the 1950s. Very nicely detailed kit for that time. Features one-piece hull, full deck details, excellent superstructure and all booms and lifeboats. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. I believe that the Matson Line Hawaiian Pilot originally started life as the Navy USS Burleigh C-3 Transport. After the was she became the Oceanic lines SS Sonoma (#2). On July 14, 1953, Hawaiian Pilot collided with SS Jacob Luckenbach (another C-3 freigher, ex-Sea Robin), off San Francisco. Luckenbach sank in 30 minutes; the crew wassafely transferred to Hawaiian Pilot and there was no loss of life.
