Thank you so much for taking the trouble to illustrate the LJ/WMS List - it is extremely interesting and also very useful
Whilst Oliver has done an excellent job within Sammelhafen - the missing models have caused me a few problems in identifying them and hopefully this info can be shared with him??
The HM/Degen models often appear and if it is not to much of commitment it would be nice to see them too as many were beautifully finished by the Hodders and quite a number are British vessels - plus some less common foreign prototypes
If you are short of any photos after Steve's contribution - please let me know as I can definitely fill some of the gaps in both Series from my own modest collection
I also have some WMS versions in other owners and charterers colours
Incidently - a good and detailed guide to colour schemes used can be found in the various issues of Talbot-Booths Merchant Ships produced from late 1930's to 1979 - early copies actually had coloured drawings
A certain well known Website also has lots of coloured Ship Postcards/Photos available - those aerial shots are great!
Hope this helps
Kind regards Paul
