This great new model by BlueJacket portrays Nantucket LV No. 112 as she was built in 1936 in Wilmington, Delaware, with the tall steam-boiler stack. Reduced plans showing her present configuration are included in the instruction booklet.
Several hendred turbo-electric drive tankers of this design were built during WWII. Construction of these vessels was standardized to meet our country's need for maximum production during the war years.
