10 Hatch Motor Coaster
Built in 1968-73 in the German Democratic Republic for service in the North Sea and Baltic seaports, these coasters were designed as multi-purpose carriers, handling diverse cargoes such as wood, paper, grain, containers etc. Over 30 vessels were originally built for Lars Rej Johansen of Oslo (Joa, Joett & Joff, Jodur, Joika etc) however they have since changed hands and names. A feature is the bulbous bow which reduces hydrodynamic drag resulting in considerable fuel savings. Our model depicts a typical motor coaster of the era.
The hatches are made up of ten identical sections which slide along the top of the coaming sides and stack up against each other along the ramps at each end of the coaming. The hatch sections may be glued together to form one large cover which lifts off in one piece.

American Beauty
Here is your chance to try your hand at being a tow boat captain. But just so you know what you are up against. The American Beauty built by St. Louis Ships for Argi-Trans Services measures 170 feet in length, with a beam of 45 feet, and requires 9 feet of water when fully loaded with fuel. Powered by twin 2500 h.p. diesel engines turning two 8 ft. diameter propellers, she typically moves a tow of 20-25 barges each being approximately 200 feet long by 35 feet wide at speeds of 4 to 9 miles per hour. That is almost 4 acres of barges! Fortunately as modelers, we have life a little easier. The Dumas kit of the American Beauty starts off with an ABS plastic hull. The construction of the superstructure is accomplished through the use of precisely die-cut birch and mahogany plywoods. To complete this kit as the image shows you need to purchase the deck hardware (#DUM2104).

Creole Queen
Looks can be deceiving, which is certainly the case with the Creole Queen. When you study the Creole Queen you could easily place her in the days of Mark Twain, wheeling down the Mississippi as onlookers sit fishing off the bank. In actuality, the Creole Queen was built in 1983 for the 1984 New Orleans World Fair. The fact that the Queen looks so authentic is no accident. Even though she is powered by a powerful diesel electric propulsion system, the builders at Halter Marine took every precaution to make sure the Creole Queen had the look of the 1800s. The Dumas model of the Creole Queen is constructed of precision die-cut birch and mahogany plywood. The detail package included in the kit is immense. It has stampings, wood turnings, castings, plastic parts, and a 3 page decal set. For the more adventurous, the size of the Creole Queen leaves the door wide open for those modelers wishing to try less conventional powering methods. Live steam would certainly be a possible option. So if you have always dreamed of building your own working stern wheeler, the Dumas Creole Queen is for you.

The Lackawanna
This coastal tug built in 1900 not only burned coal for power but also but also hauled barges filled with coal along the New England coast. The Lackawanna was 137 feet long but her gorgeous sheer and festive air made her appear almost yacht like. Our 33 inch model of the Lackawanna captures all the beautiful lines of this classic tug. This kit features a vacuum ABS plastic hull and expanded PVC diecut parts. The Lackawanna is not short on detail with tons of laser cut parts and loads of castings and turnings. Top it off with clear and concise step by step plans and instructions and you have a great kit of an Early 20th Century Tug that is truly a pleasure to build.

Myrtle Corey
The Myrtle Corey is a fine example of a late 1800's river towboat. Typical of the day, these boats were site built, without plans, with lots of substitutions and jury rigged construction. Once commonplace along the waters of the Mississippi and Arkansas rivers, the Dumas model of the Myrtle Corey is designed to bring that amazing era back to life. This kit features vacuum formed hull and roofs. The substructure is made from diecut expanded pvc and there is a load of stripwood to provide the boat with it's characteristic planked deck and cabin sides.
Everything in this kit is designed for detail and realism. We include: castings, wood turnings, laser cut parts and so much more. Even the paddlewheel and rudder hardware is included.

Brannaren
The Brannaren was representative of a small coastal tanker of the early thirties, of a size and type to be found all around the world. Built in Malmo and completed in1933, the Brennaren first saw service in the Swedish Navy before being sold to private owners. Few scale model manufacturers dare include a tanker in their range, such is their complexity. The Brennaren is a must in any serious modellers collection.

The hull is a fully detailed GRP molding, decks and superstructure are high quality precision cut birch ply with printed overlays. The pipe work around the decks and their valves form the main and unique feature of the Brennaren. Installation has been made easier by the nature of the fittings and the accurate separate underlay drawing provided. A full compliment of white metal fittings along with all dowel, wire and cordage make the finished model.

S.S. Talacre - Single Hatch Coaster
The hull is of GRP fully detailed on the exterior with plating, double riveting and strakes. The whole package is complete with CNC cut plywood, printed overlays, funnel material, hatch cover, moulded ships boats, mast and boom material, cargo material, rigging cord, transfers, detailed drawings and instruction book, crew members and all cast white metal fittings to complete.

The SS Talacre is a typical single hatch coaster used in the coal trade of a type that was found by the hundreds around the coast of the U.K. in the golden era of steam. Designed for Point of Ayr Collieries by Crichton, Thompson & Co Ltd., of London she was built by Crabtree &Co., of Great Yarmouth in 1917. Talacre was named after a small village near the colliery. Talacre was finally scraped in 1959 by the Hammond Lane Foundry in Dublin. Realism leaps out of the completed model, as if a turn of a valve will start the anchor windlass or the cargo winch clattering away and the lagged steam pipes to begin steaming and drying out.

Hudson Gate
Built by Joshua Henry Ironworks, Sunnyvale, California.
In 1940, Great Britain stood alone, fighting the Axis Powers, and after nine months of war had already lost one million tons of shipping that had been sent to the bottom of the Atlantic by German U boats. The U boats were sinking ships faster than the British yards could build them.
In September 1940, a British Merchant Ship-building Mission, headed by a representative of J. L. Thompson & Sons of Sunderland, was sent to the U.S.A. with the sole motive of ordering ships to be built there. To speed up possible production, they brought with them the Thompson designed "Dorrington Court" plans, and so it was, with slight modifications that the Liberty Ships came to be built.
A total of 2,700 ships were constructed and whilst "built by the mile and chopped of by the yard" they are credited with saving not only Great Britain, but in the Allied cause, the whole world from disaster. The model shown is of a standard armed cargo ship serving with the United States Navy.

Details of the kit:
Scale: 1/96 
Length: 1.384m (54.5")
Beam: 185mm (7.3")

Includes:
-One piece detailed fiber glass hull
-Printed or laser plastic for decks and superstructure -Metal and resin fittings
-Prop shafts, prop tubes, motor mounts, rudders
-Full size plans
-Decals as required

In the post war rebuilding period, a series of 4,500 ton colliers was built between 1946-1956 with an average length between PP of 320 feet.
The first vessel delivered was the HUDSON STRAIT, completed in 1946 for the Hudson Steam ship co followed by her sister the HUDSON FIRTH in 1949
She was designed as a collier to supply the London power stations. and did sterling work for many years in this trade.
When the decline in the coal trade became evident the Hudson Steamship Co refitted her with oil burning engines and cargo handling gear for mixed freight trade.
Far and wide she did roam in her new work, she is recorded in place such as Canada. South Africa, and many ports on the Atlantic seaboard.
She passed to Panamanian owners in 1967 who traded her for a further five years, and after her last cargo was discharged at Birkenhead, she departed for the breakers yard of W.H. Arnott Young at Dalmuir on the Clyde.

This model ship kit is the second ship in our range of modern Ro-RO ferries and one of the largest and most complex to be added to our range.
This kit is based on a 65" x 10" x 9.5" internal depth moulded glass fibre hull with all prop, rudder and fairlead detail moulded into the hull.
For the first time in our range of kits, and to allow for the size and weight of this model the car deck and main hold deck is in 1.5mm high impact plastic sheet included in the kit When Bonded to the 9mm square ramin deck beams this gives a hull\ deck combination of immense strength without the normal large number of bulkheads and multitude of deck beams associated with a model of this size and weight. The main superstructure is in printed 1mm plastic as is the funnel casings.
A full set of detailed cast alloy fittings is included using some of the latest moulding technology to give detail to an outstanding degree. To compliment this large items such as the lifeboats and the massive main winches are finely detailed cast metal and plastic fittings finished off with the fine detailed brass etchings.
To compliment the kit and to add superfine detail and complete sheet of brass etchings approx 152" x 12" is crammed full of incredible detail from the huge side openings in the hull, all the deck stanchions of three different types, the complicated masts, we even have the windscreen wipers at 1/96 scale.
Ships inflatable liferafts and assorted other fittings are cast in acrylic resin for extremely sharp and accurate detailing. Cast metal stanchions, and deck fittings add the truly professional touch to this hard working merchant ship model.
Propeller tubes, fitted with oiling points and stainless steel shafts are included
Full details are supplied for the fitting of motors, nicads and radio equipment.
Should the modeller wish to add variations to his ship, we have included detail and variations of the other ships in the class along with colour schemes.
Two full size plans are included in the kit to aid construction plus a comprehensive instruction book using some of the latest digital imaging to provide picture and sketches to aid construction.
The Celestine model is of massive proportions but still has outstanding sailing qualities as in all of the Deans fleet especially when fitted with the recommended motors and bow thruster.
Deans Marine wish to express there appreciation to the COBELFRET NV company and EUROSHIP SERVICES and the Captain and crew of the M.V. VELENTINE for the invaluable help and assistance the have given and without this project would not have been possible.
