Re: Model identification
Mitsubishi SAN DIEGO MARU, 1928. Similar to SAN CLEMENTE MARU, 1937. See ONI-208J p.287. May be an answer there. Remotely a possible mistake by South Salem.
The number 13 on the bottom identifies it as SAN DIEGO MARU by South Salem. A photo of this model appears in Sammelhafen.de. But what’s odd here is the placement of the funnel which does not conform to either the real ship, or to the one pictured in Sammelhafen. Why this is is a mystery to me.
Can anyone identify the model in the pics?
