That would get my vote

I built that kit in my early teens back in the 1960s and it was one of my all-time favorites. About that time the movie "Under Ten Flags" came out (loosely) based on the Atlantis.
I recently found the remnants of the kit in my garage. It has survived many moves around the country. If you consider the scale (about 1/456) it may have traveled as many miles as the real Atlantis.
How accurate is the model kit? About as accurate as the movie.
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.
