While naming no specific inspiration, common belief attributes this rescue boat's classic design to a prototype developed in 1953 by the U.S. Air Force. Thanks to Lindberg Models, the original vessel has been faithfully restored with this authentic, historically accurate replica. Relatively easy to assemble, this plastic model ship kit includes 133 pieces, a large number of pre-made decals, and measures 12" long when assembled.

The included crew figures offer a variety of posing options and configurations. Aside from its interesting history (post-WWII 20mm guns are included for a military flavor), the kit’s best features happen to be its motorized pieces and highly-intricate deck construction. This Lindberg ship model kit offers excellent instructions and a solid-quality nautical build!
