Vintage C3 Cargo Model Ship
Transmitter Ready Radio Control


LOA 51"   BEAM  7"    DRAFT 2 3/8"   HEIGHT  12 1/2"   WEIGHT 17 Lbs


Presented
is a vintage, scratch built wood model of a Ca 1960's American cargo ship based on the lines of a U.S. Maritime Commission C3 design developed in the 1930's. Its central deckhouse, fore and aft decks and hatch covers are removable. Beneath them are the ship's skeletal construction which includes frames, stringers and wood sheathed plank on frame construction. The model's super structure is painted in white, with cream accent bands on the cargo towers and a brown deck and hatch covers. The hull's topsides are painted black to a white boot top and the bottom paint is red.

 

All the cargo ship's rigging, gear and equipment are fitted around each of the cargo boom towers. Other details such as the appropriate controls are present alongside of the 12 donkey engines, and the flying bridge and aft steering station have the appropriate miniature binnacles and telegraphs.

Plan of typical C3 Cargo ship similar to this model. Engine room pictured below 

EQUIPMENT: The model is equipped with brass propeller, steel shaft, Dumas electric motor of 4.5 volts & 2.5 amps, and two servos operated from a Kraft Sport Series 72.3 Megahertz receiver. Missing is the required 2 channel transmitter compatible with the 72.3 MHZ receiver to complete the Radio Controls. Installed is lead pellet ballast in the bilges and pig ballast in the engine compartment. There are three extra bars of LYMAN pig ballast. Based on its equipment, we estimate the model was built in the early 1970's by an experienced professional model maker.

Poop deck, after steering station & bollards
4 cargo boom donkey engines & their controls

Three forward hatches and handling gear
Forecastle with windlass chain & anchor

CONDITION: The model is in exceptional condition for its age, and has recently been cleaned, its rigging and booms repaired, a new forward hatch built and two new lifeboats installed. All the electronic parts have been tested and work, but the necessary two channel transmitter is missing. The model has not been tested in the water and it watertight integrity is not known. After being out of the water for so long, it is expected that it would take some time for the wood to soak up water and become watertight. Also, expect to find some of the normal marks of age consisting of dents, minor scratches, and missing paint that because of the model's size don't show in the pictures.

 

BECAUSE OF ITS AGE, THIS MODEL IS BEING SOLD FOR DISPLAY ONLY.

 


          Removable bridge and aft deck assemblies

SHIP'S HISTORY: Ships of this type were first built in 1939, just prior to WW II, and the design presented was not specific to any service or trade route, but was for a general purpose that could be modified for specific uses. The C3 was larger and faster than the C1 and C2 predecessors, measuring 492 feet from stem to stern, and was designed to make 16.5 knots. Like the C2, it had five cargo holds.   A total of 465 of these ships were built between 1939 and 1947. During World War II, many C3 ships were converted to naval uses, particularly as Bogue class escort carriers and as destroyer tenders, submarine tenders and seaplane tenders. After the War, they were converted back to cargo vessels for a number of steamship lines. For specific details and elevation drawings of various ships before and after WW II see http://drawings.usmaritimecommission.de/drawings_c3.htm and for a miniature model of a combined President's Line cargo and passeneger ship of this design, click here. http://landandseacollection.com/id669.html
