   Construction should be fairly simple without a multiplicity of detail, and I will leave the method of building to the modeller's preference.

   The Sandpiper was built by Henry Robb Ltd. at their Victoria shipyard at Leith in 1957; this yard was to build numerous ships for GSN over the years. She was sold out of the fleet in 1966 to Administration du Territoire des Iles St. Pierre & Miquelon France and renamed Ile de Saint Pierre; 1969: to Territoires d'Outr-Mer France; 1976: to Paturel Freres France; 1981: to Alinda Shipping Co, (John N. Goulandris) Greece and renamed Alinda ; 1982: to Samothraki Navigation Corp. Panama and renamed Katia K; 1989: to unspecified owners and renamed Voyager II (1989) and was finally broken up
