Hello all!

I have recently acquired a 1.5m long (1/48 scale) tinplate and wood model of the 1961 coaster 'Ann M' (IMO 5018284) owned by the Metcalf Shipping Co, London. She later was renamed Ann II, then Whitburn Girl (?).

The hull, decks and some of the superstructure is complete, but there are no fittings or fine detail - yet! I aim to finish her and will add radio control. She will make a fine companion to my superb (brass) model of the 1958 John Carter coaster Cranborne, also in 1/48 scale.

Can anyone tell me what colours she was painted or point me to where I might find more information, details and history?

Thanks in advance,

Jeremy Lewis

#1 I sailed with Metcalfe's in the 60's All the photographs that I have seen of the Ann M are in black and white. There is one photo on the shipspotting gallery that has a link in #2 of the Michael M in colour. I am certain that the hull superstructure and funnel colours are the same as I remember the fleet colours of the 60's .
