Oh, I get it now. FH means Full Hull, not an abbreviation for the reviewer's name. The name is at the end.
Well, I still wish those two reviewers had good kits in front of them so they could see the differences in the kits.
Oops. Your link was off by a bit - should have been http://www.modelerjoe.net/shipmodellist.html#RenSem
The review on the Seminole says "same kit, different decals" as the Sarasota. This is not correct.
--The Sarasota is a Haskell class Attack Transport APA, same class as the Revell Montrose and Randall, a Victory Ship variant - VC2-S-AP5.
--The Seminole is Tolland class Amphibious Cargo Ship AKA, a C2 variant - C2-S-AJ3.
Besides differently shaped hulls and upperworks, the ships differ in their function. The APA has lots of small LCVP landing craft for putting the Marines ashore. The AKA has heavy cranes and larger LCMs for putting the equipment ashore.
Wouldn't you know it - Revell tells of plans to re-release the Renwal Sarasota instead of the Seminole? There has never been another plastic kit of an AKA like the Seminole, but Revell is going to re-release the same ship as the larger US Revell Montrose/Randall.
I don't know who the FH is, who wrote that Ship Kits List of the Seminole, but he got it wrong. And the dito's Note was also incorrect. My only guess is that he was given a box of parts for the Sarasota and didn't look at the instructions to see what the ship should look like.
The Renwal auxiliaries (Sarasota, Seminole and the Compass Island, a C4 variant) have not been released since 1962. The kits were very, very nice for their time, and can still make a great model, almost out of the box, if 1/500 is your cup of tea. The odd construction with the access through the bottom is odd ,but not impactful. The kit has a flat bottom, but not as bad as the ancient Revell flat-bottom ships that were cut off between the waterline and the keel.
Yes, they are particular favorites of mine.
