This is a 487′ long 1st generation container ship that would have entered service in the mid-70s. It uses a modified tanker hull but its interior was purpose-built for containers and modern, compact power plants. It has six full-width hatches (seven containers wide)and six wide fore and aft hatches. This means its capacity was about 1000 TEUs, or 500 containers. These are nearing end of life, but are still used between smaller ports, and as feeder ships.
The model is built with cast resin bow, stern and hatches, built up styrene for the middle section of the hull and superstructure, custom photo-etched railings and stairways, and many custom details such as winches, masts, ventilators, davits and lifeboat. The model is 36.5″ long. The midsection hull can be extended up to 80′ or shortened up to 100′ in about 20′ intervals by custom order.
A built-up model, custom painted and decaled is $1250.00 US, plus shipping and insurance. Extending or shortening the hull is an extra $50 US.
A complete kit containing all details (but not commodities like paint and glue) is $475 US, plus shipping.
