I wasn't going to delete them, but just don't think there is any point in adding more as it is quite obvious that there is virtually no interest in such things!

I wouldn't say they were entirely unpopular.
If I am not mistaken, you did list Liberty ships along with the merchantmen.

This model is huge!

Sometimes it's necessary to go a long distance out of the way in order to come back a short distance correctly.
