THE FINEST HOURS is a Disney action-thriller, based on a true sea rescue mission. And the Glencoe 1:48 scale US Coast Guard rescue boat features the type of vessel used in the movie. Click below to see Mat Irvine's video build of the kit.
A US Coast Guard crew (below) went into the teeth of a massive nor'east megastorm off the coast of New England storm to reach the tanker SS Pendleton.
The SS Pendleton (below) snapped in two, with only a couple of hours left before the stern section sank, taking the sailors down with it. So the Coast Guard had a race against time as well as weather.
The trailer (below) reveals a seat-of-your-pants movie, complete with love interest. It looks good, and we'll be watching it soon.
