Re: unidentified small marus
I didn't see any of these "lakers" spelled SENSEI MARU in ONI208-J, they were spelled SINSEI MARU on p.228; SINSEI M. #3 P.157; SINSEI M. #17 p.151. Post-Lakers on p.151--note masts. Different pubs. may spell Japanese ship names differently, however. Were at least two systems in English on how to spell the names.
The top pic. is a "Laker" cargo ship. New Model sold by Metal Miniatures back in the 1980s-90s. Second pic is the same type ship, probably by South Salem Studios (could be a reproduction by someone).
(Superior Models has a "Post Laker" model; slightly different than the "Lake" and had tall single masts on focsle and fantail. These appeared shortly after the Great War.)
Had these models for a while. There are no identifying markings on the bottom. Any ideas as to their identities?
