This ship is the third addition to our growing range of MERCHANT vessels and is thought by many to be one of the most attractive ships to grace the North Sea. With the full co-operation of the owners, the HUDSON STEAMSHIP CO., we have modelled this version of one of their colliers that ran to the Thames until the 1960's supplying the huge demand for coal to feed the power stations of the London area.
In betwen this task she ran many sea voyages from London to the ports of North Africa,Finland and Canada. She was eventually sold to a Panamanian Company. This hard working and proud little ship is still giving good service and was last seen transitting the Panama Canal resplendant in a lilac and black colour scheme.
