Default Ship Require Identification Chemical Goods Freighter

This Ship Here
SCT = Chemical Goods Freighter or Small Coastal Tanker




I couldn't find any world war two ship match to this and I have serious doubt this is a world war two ship at all. The thing above the mast is clearly a radar not a standard wwii merchant equipment.

SHO Ship Identified Lake Class Cargo Ship

Just found out there is another group of ship looks quite like this one


KQS = Small Costal Merchant



The matching ships are US made WWI era Lake cargo ship
USS Lake Shore


USS Lake Superior



USS Lake Champlain


USS Lake Huron




SS Lake Sunapee






These are not 100% the same ship but the general profile matches and the ship dimesions within reasonalbe range.Consider the model quality we currently having now,I say the model matches these ships fair enough.

Which one? those KKFKK merchants?Yes. Half of them stayed in the great lake area and retired before WWII. The rest went all over the world sold to all different contries and some even paticipated during D-day.

SHO Ship Identified SC-497 Class Subchaser

This ship here
DE_BH1 = Big Hunter or BigHumter01=Coastal Corvette




Is identified as US made SC-497 Class Subchaser.It not the best quality model in the world many details are missing but I am quite confirmed this is the ship.


Here are the real ships:



SC-497





SC-498


SC-661 / BO-303




SC-1047 / BO-208




Huge number of these were made and lend-lease to other countries,435 served in US,8 served in Brasil, 50 served under Free French and France,136 Served in Russian and they do call them "Big Hunter" for some unknown reason obviously they are not very big.

142 subchasers of the SC-497 type under Lend-Lease received the Soviet VMF. 50 - by the French, 8 - by the Brazilians. Mexico and Norway received three each. In Norway, all three SCs survived: the hunter "Hitra" (ex-SC-718) is now on display at the Royal Naval Museum, and the remains of the hunters "Hessa" (ex-SC-683) and "Vigra" (ex-SC-1061) can be found off the coast of Sweden.

Sea Hunter "Hitra" in June 2003

I think I didnt count for those who enter service after the war,otherwise the data should be matching.

Looks like various motorized barges used on European rivers; I will try to look for names but I have seen the type before.

I don't think it's modeled after a specific ship - rather a general "motorized barge" concept, meant to represent ships like these:

I think it would be rather difficult to 100% identify small ships like those but sometime you never know.


Another ship I have trouble identify is this guy here.

NACG , NACG_early NACG_late = Cargo Steamer
