Product Description

History:

Liberty Ships were a class of cargo ship built during World War II. They were old fashioned, utilitarian vessels that could be built in a hurry. They got the name Liberty Ships because the first one was named the S.S. PATRICK HENRY. Liberty ships were very flexible. In addition to hauling war supplies, some variants were used as tankers, colliers, passenger transports, hospital ships, repair ships,and tank transports.

There are 3 surviving Liberty ships, the Jeremiah O'Brian (pictured here), The John W. Brown, and the Lane Victory.  More information can be found about liberty ships at Project Liberty Ship.

  1. Nice Hull 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Aug 17th 2017

    The hull came without damage and looks great. Also bought the deck kit that came with hold down fittings and a gauge for sub deck. Plan that came with the kit shows much detail to complete the model. Can't wait to start building.

  2. LIBERTY SHIP HULL 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 26th 2017

    Purchased one of these hulls a couple of years ago to use as the basis for a scale model. The hull is excellent and am well pleased with the result.
    The hull was designed for use in battle situations and is made from a thick fibreglass to withstand hits. This does require some "thinning" of the bulwarks to replicate the plated type as the original section is quite thick.
    Thinking seriously of buying a second one to use for a scale model of a Canadian Fort vessel, which has a similar hull to a Liberty ship.
