The typical small motor coastal tanker of today is the 966 gross tons Adrian M, a fine little ship owned by Messrs. Metcalf of London. Featured this month as our working model plan, the full sized Adrian M measures 216.6 in length overall on a moulded breadth of 31.2 feet. At a scale of just 1/8 of an inch to the foot, the Adrian M makes an ideal subject for a 'kitchen table' project, or for those with a limited workshop. There is a fair amount of interesting detail on this model, but all at a reasonable scale, adding interest especially for those who like the constructional side of model making. The Adrian M was built at Bremen, Germany, in 1957, but a full description of both the model and full sized ship will be given in the next issue. Meantime, those wishing to begin construction of the model Adrian M could start with the hull and use later notes to assist completion. Hull : This can be built either "bread and butter" fashion, or "bread and butter" bow and stern with the centre section made up by 1/4in. sides and 1/2 in. sheet bottom. The bow can be left fairly solid to take head-on knocks, while the after part is hollowed out for the power installation. As a material a good hard balsa could be used,
