Thank´s Barney for the photos, yes this is the models i´m right no building. But the problem is that i can´t find any good fotos or info. of the real ship. And that makes it hard for me to make them in to good replicas of the real ships.
Thank´s for your reply to me and for your time.
Hasse

As John Shaw has indicated, there was a plastic kit of Hawaiian Pilot. My uncle, who was a chief engineer with Manchester Liners, brought one back from the USA or Canada as a Christmas present for me c.1957. It was brilliant, and there was nothing as large or as good to be bought in Britain at that time.

Best of luck

hello vectisol.
In the 60`s when i was a kid i could not find it in Sweden. In the 70`s when i was sailing on the Johnson Line to the States i did se it in the stores but did not buy it. Now it´s year 2006 and i have it. Now it´s time to do the best of the old Revell kit that´s dates back to 1955. That´s the reasen why i try so hard to find photos of the real ship. But that is not easy.
Have a nice day Vectisol, Hasse.
