Coastal and Bunkering Tanker - Profile and Deck Plan

By Harold A. Underhill, A.M.I.E.S.


Item attributes


Item details

Plan: 1178

Scale: ¼“ = 1’ 0”

Length 42¾” and displacement is 39lbs.

A familiar sight in all large ports and estuaries is the small Tanker employed bunkering the big ships and on coastwise passages to near-by-harbours.

Their low side docks usually, awash in anything but flat calm water, remind one of the old turret ships.

This type of vessel forms a new and unusual subject for model work, yet, thanks to its large displacement and ample space below docks, well suited for radio control.
