Kit #19 - ADMRIABLE TYPE PCE 1944 KIT OF 4
The Admirable Class Minesweepers were a new class of minesweeper built to fill the void that existed in US minesweeping capability at the beginning of World War Two. They were quite successful and the same basic design was also used as the Patrol Craft Escort when the need for convoy escorts became urgent.
68 PCEs were built for the U. S. Navy during WW II, designed as anti-submarine convoy escorts.
The USS Hazard was typical of the Admirable class and served in the Pacific escorting convoys and clearing out minefields.
The kit consists of a resin hull and parts, an etched brass fret & instructions. The kit is cast in a soft styrene-like gray. A one piece mold was used to make the castings, so there is a slight overpour to sand away. The kit assembles like an injection molded kit.
