Description

All Iron Shipwrights 1/350 Scale Model Kits Come with a Full Resin Hull, Pieces, Instructions, and Photoetch Parts for Ultimate Historical Accuracy. USS Navajo ATF 67 Ocean Going Tug. Built in 1939, the USS Navajo ATF 67 was one of a large class of ocean-going tugs named after American Indian tribes. Over 200' in length and displacing 1,500 tons at full load, these armed vessels were used to tow ships as well as assisting in salvage efforts (click the accompanying image of USS Hopi ATF 61 for an excellent photo of a typical ATF). Vital Statistics Abnaki Class Ocean Tug, Fleet Displacement: 1,650 tons full load Length: 205' Beam: 39' Draft:14' Speed: 14 knots 30,000 H.P. diesel-electric machinery, one screw Armament: one 3"/50, four 20mm Oerlikon cannons Complement: 85. The Iron Shipwright 1:350 scale USS Navajo is a one piece full hull kit. Photo etched brass is included, though neither brass nor the instructions were available for this preview. The hull casting is full of detail, including numerous integrally cast winches. Casting quality looked to be very good, with only a few small voids needing filling. You will also have to do a minor amount of filling along the keel where the resin casting sprue attaches to the hull. Construction should be easy, consisting mainly of affixing resin gun tubs and etched brass to the hull casting. Please note, all Iron Shipwrights products are made-to-order and may ship separately in a combined order.
