Hello from Sweden, my name is Hasse.
Im new in this forum, and what a surprise to find this Ben Line forum. Im 56 year old and was sailing on the Johnson line in the 70s on M.S. PORTLAND and M.S. RIO DE JANEIRO. In this days i build models of cargo ships and tankers. My next shipmodel is M.V. BENLEDI or sistership in 1/480 scale. Please help my in finding "detail" photos of this beautiful ship, so i can make the model to a fine replica of the real ship.
Thanks Hasse.

Hi Hassle

Like yourself, I have always been interested in anything to do with the history of the Ben Line and particularly the "Benledi". Sailed on her in 1969/70

A few years ago a guy in Vancouver called Bill Bull built a scale model of the "Benledi" and sent me these photo.
