Cargo vessel; Oil tanker
Scale: Unknown. A waterline model of an oil tanker. The hull is painted black with brick red at the waterline. The decks are painted a uniform light grey. The foredeck has anchor cable gear, painted the same colour as the deck and, at the rear of the deck, a foremast. On the starboard side of the mast is a ventilator-like fitting with a flat, circular top. The main deck occupies almost the entire length of the vessel and has five large panels, inline, similar to large hatch covers. The middle (third) panel is longer than the other four. Between the panels are pairs of the ventilator-like fittings, identical to the fitting by the foredeck, and there is another such fitting just forward of the superstructure. The superstructure is placed at the stern and is painted white. The front elevation is flat and vertical and the bridge wing supports sweep outward forming two apertures from the space between the supports and the walls of the bridge section. Atop the bridge, at the front of the upper deck, is a pair of crane-like vertical fittings. Aft of these fittings is a radar mast. The single, tall funnel is oval in section, and painted black with a broad, white, horizontal stripe on which is a company logo of a pair of red stripes intersecting a red square. The funnel is placed aft of the accommodation with four ventilators surrounding it. There is a pair of lifeboats, with orange hulls and grey covers, stowed on davits at the port and starboard stern quarters. On base of model "383".
