The Tankers were disguised as just a cargo ship.
The liberty Tankers had all the piping & "Tanker" equipment installed on the tween decks so the ships could pass as just regular Liberty Ships. Oil tank hatches added to the cargo hatch covers were the only visual difference.
This is all from the Sawyer & Mitchel Liberty ship book.
I think Richard Harden (Tom's Model Works) bought all the HP US masters some time ago... perhaps he could help you.
HP Models did but I don't know if he still produces them. I have heard if you email him he sometimes offers what is asked for on Ebay Germany where he still sells kits.
Did/does anyone make a resin 1/700th Liberty Ship tanker ?
