Box art was interesting.....
The Pyro Maine was discussed above, and rightly. The box illustration did look like the Maine, though. Nothing like what was in the box.
The Heller Maine didn't even stick those blob sponsons onto the hull like Pyro did. They just boxed the Olympia, I don't know whose version of it, and sold it as the Maine.
An accurate, injection molded Maine in something between 1/220 and 1/350 is still at the top of my wish list.

So we've had the question below what was your thoughts on the 1st most accurate ship model, so what do you think is most INACCURATE model you ever had?
Don't get me wrong, I love Airfix and their range of 1/600 scale vessels (I think I built most of them) but my vote on the most inaccurately proportioned ship model ever was their BISMARCK and TIRPITZ. I'd be interested to hear how they got 'em so wrong.
Love you Airfix.
