The Haskell class were modified Victory ships, this model is the “as fitted” WWII version of this famous design. Decals and painting instructions are included for those wishing to do a post war version. Hull numbers & names are also included for 3 ships, Haskell, Montrose & Randall

The kit consists of a resin hull and parts with a large brass photo etch sheet & instructions. The parts are cast in a soft styrene-like gray resin. The kit is based on drawings of these transports built, with many details taken from photographs. The kit is complete; all the modeler need add is glue & paint. The hull measures just over 7 3/4" long. Deck details such as cargo hatches, bollards, winches and lower superstructure are cast onto the hull. A full complement of 24 LCVP’s & 2 LCM’s is included.

The Brass PE fret has railings, cargo nets, supports for the various platforms, 20MM gun shields, tackle for the cargo booms, and boat davits. Brass rod is provided for the cargo booms and topmasts. Complete assembly & painting instructions are also included.
