Re: Model identification
Continuing ... my conclusion is that someone broke off the funnel and repositioned it farther aft. On your model, grab ahold of the funnel and if it snaps off--that would mean it was reglued. Check the supposed original position, look for signs of a broken-off piece. Also, I have two examples of No.13 model not in a set, both with paint removed.
I have four sets of the SS ships and all have the same old tanker model (4.5 in. long x 11/16 wide). Looks like SS may have changed the model in their sets. A previous owner of one set incorrectly id'd No.13 as MANZYU MARU. Your model does not appear to have been modified, as by a collector.
