T-2 Tanker (BJ-K1026) Length 32-1/2″ / Scale 1/16″

Several hundred 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. After valiantly supplying our troops during the war, the T-2 served as the backbone of the commercial tanker industry for many years.

BlueJacket’s kit can be built to either wartime or peacetime configurations, the modeler’s choice, with plans and details for many shipping companies provided.

Brand

BlueJacket

BlueJacket is one of the leading manufacturers of quality wooden ship model kits. This Maine-based company is perhaps the oldest ship model kit manufacturer, having been in continuous operation since 1905! The company focuses on American subjects. Most kits feature pre-carved solid wood hull, but many kits are laser-cut plank-on-bulkhead and some are even true plank-on-frame kits.

BlueJacket also maintains the Laughing Whale line of kits, which are predominantly small American watercraft. With the demise of Midwest boat kits, these are about the only source for these small subjects. However, you will find them to be excellent quality kits of classic subjects.

Note that BlueJacket kit instructions are provided in english only.
