Round 2 models has reissued Lindberg's old USS Kennebec class tanker kit from the 1950s.
According to Round 2, who have been reissuing many old Lindberg kits:

Behind the great battleships and aircraft carriers of World War II was the bloodline of the U.S. Navy, the fleet oilers. This Kennebec-class Tanker could replenish ships at sea allowing fleets to operate at greater range. These ships could make almost 20 knots to enable them to refuel while underway and without stopping. A few of these tankers continue to fuel American in commercial service today. The plastic model kit is 12” long, includes thread for rigging, and is molded in grey. It requires glue assembly and paint is suggested. A pictorial assembly guide is included.

Box scale. Actually it goes nicely with the other ancient 1/500-ish kits of the time from Revell, Renwal and Lindberg. (And Nichimo Japanese ships) So there is a whole fleet of 40-60 year old kits it was meant to accompany. 1/500-1/600 Used to be the ship scale once upon a time before Tamiya decided to double the size of the waterline series to 1/350. It's a piece of modeling history. Now do I get one to accompany my Revell carriers--

Stephen, you're right, this kit is a piece of modeling history... but IMHO, not one of the best pieces! The subject and scale are about the best things going for this model, but the plastic overall is just a bit crude. Still, if your Revell 1/540 carrier is thirsty, what can you do?!
