Re: What was the first REALLY accurate injected plastic model of a steel warship?
Allowing for "first" and accepting that "really accurate" is relative to the time, you might consider Lindbergs Elco PT boat and LST kits. These have an origin in a company named Varney' which originally produced them during WW II.
Lindberg got somewhat close, no cigar.
Revell's 1/426 (?) Arizona is accurate but for the "pill box" 5" casemate guns. The Yorktown isn't bad. The 1/72 PT 109 isn't too bad.
I'd give the award to Tamiya for coming out with the 1/350 battleships some years past.
