It appears in Kelvin Holmes's excellent and extremely useful -
A Guide to Waterline Model Ships (11th Edn in PDF)
on Pages 111 and 112
Whilst the list is 'basic' as it only gives a single name for each ship listed (unless large classes such as Liberty Ships, C2s, Empire B etc) - it is a good starting point
I have an original (and well used and abused!) copy of a listing produced - probably some 30 or more years ago - by A H Models (Alan Hodder) of all available LJ/WMS/Hein Muck (Degen) ships available from him
I guess Len had stopped producing at that time?
The LJ list corresponds to that in Kelvin's book - and there are only 6 WMS models listed - out of maybe 40?
Interestingly - not all HM models are listed - just 58 - all except one suffixed W - which I think were specially made for WMS order
The selection is quite varied and not restricted to British Vessels
I also have a number of LJ/WMS/HM models and a number of archive photos to study
The ship in the photo is definitely a M112 - Glen Line vessel and could be any one of the four in the class - as noted colours are slightly off
Finally - a resource of LJ Instructions would be very useful - maybe Oliver can be persuaded to host one - I have a few unmade kits containing intructions
Sorry for the long post but hope it is of use
