I have models of the following merchant ships. What I am looking for is the specific ship used as the exemplar, and/or sisters.The CinC "tramp" steamer.Does anyone know which real life ship this model is meant to represent? I posted the question on CinC's own discussion forum, but no answer.If I could identify the exemplar, I could maybe find a few near sisters in Jordan's book.The CinC "doxford" merchant.I have gotten mixed answers about this model. I have been told it does NOT represent any ship built by Doxford, rather ships powered by Doxford engines.Yet I have found a few stats and pictures from Jordan's book that seem to match the model; they are ships built by Doxford.GHQ's "gran"The MV Gran was indeed a real ship. What I am seeking is if she had any sisters/near-sisters to paint and use.Any help would be greatly appreciated.
