Swedish Cargo Ship Ramsö, June 1942

The ship:


The Ramsö is a small Swedish frighter build during WW1 in the USA as a ship of the EFC Design 1020 "Laker" class. It's not exactly known how and when the ship was sodl to sweden, but records show that it was first metioned in Swedish serices in 1926.

Being a neutral country in WW2, the Ramsö transported goods to several countries in the Baltic Sea. Despite the war, ports of all sides were visited, transporting furniture from a Swedish company to cutomers around the Baltic Sea.

For better identification, the ship was painted with huge Swedish flags on the sides, and luckiely the ship survived WW2. Being completly obsolete, it was scrapped soon after the war.







The model:

This is a 3D printed model of a WW1 US Cargo ship (EFC 1020) "Laker". orignally in 1/350 scale, it was printed at 50% size. Some additional PE parts & crew were added. Painted with Revell Aqua Colour, decals were self made.

The following 3D model was used:
