Hi everybody,

Ok, thanks for all advice - I'm probably visiting Rotterdam next October and certainly also the museum.
And as a plan B I will look at Finnmerchant seriously as well, thank for the GA.

Dear All,

I'm looking for guidance and help to locate drawings for three Finnlines Netherlands built cargo vessels :

1/ Finnpulp 5115290 (#550)- Completed 1953 Werf. J. Smit & Zoon, Alblasserdam
4.048GRT, 6.604tdw
Scrapped Aliaga 1989-05-18  (Leyal GS Ticaret) maybe Gina ?

2/Finnsailor 5115305 - Completed 1952 by "De Merwede" v. Vliet & Co., Hardinxveld
“Scheepswerf & Machinefabriek "De Merwede" v/h.van Vliet & Co, Hardinxveld”
*sold and renamed 68 GRACIA - 72 TUMI
BU Brownsville 26.1.84 [Goldwils Ltd]

3/Finntrader QFQP – 5115331 (#210) – Completed 1951 by Scheepsinstallatiebedrijt, Nederlands N.V.
Netherlands, Ijsselmonde
Scheepswerft de Hoop Lobith Tolkamer, Nedrlands N.V
Demolished Colombia Mamonal as ”Puerto De Vita” 1988.

I've been trying to find these, probably quite small shipyards, but so far without any luck.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Best Regards,

Juha Luukka

Hi there,

I just got my model 1/200 built in Saigon - for 260usd. Hull is very good work as is paint work. For someone not a seaman the rig will do also - I'm planning to adjust the rig and some of the deck machinery, like winches.
Actually the deal called for taking two models so I'm going back to Saigon to pick up the sistership soon.
See attached picture of Finnsailor.
