Kit #12: T-2 Tanker
The T-2 Tanker kit consists of a resin hull and parts with a large brass photoetch sheet, decals & instructions. The kit is cast in a soft styrene-like gray resin. Two piece molds were used to make the castings, so there is no overpour to sand away. The kit assembles like an injection molded kit and is based on two specific ships, the USS Cowanesque & USS Cossatot, with alternate parts for each ship.
The hull is about 8 inches long, modeled low to the water as one of these ships would appear when fully loaded. The decal sheet consists of hull numerals for several ships plus an American flag. The Brass PE fret has railings, catwalks, supports for the various platforms, 20MM gun shields, tackle for the cargo booms, and boat davits.
The Navy oiler version required a lot of special equipment and extra armament, so the parts count runs to 80+ resin pieces. Also included are four 80 foot Elco PT boats as deck cargo and optional parts to make several variants.
The photoetch brass set for the T-2 tanker is also available seperately for $10.00. For ordering information on the T-2 Tanker kits ($65.00) and T-2 photoetch ($10.00) follow this link to David's Page or to browse some more Return to Loose Cannon Productions Auxillaries Page
