1/400 H315-169 Revell Hawaiian Pilot C3 Freighter 'S' Kit
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: NM+
1955-1959 'S' issue with the famous box art of the period. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present. 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.
