Hollywood (1951); Cargo vessel; Oil tanker

Scale: 1:96. A shipbuilder’s model of the tanker ‘Hollywood’ (1951) made to a high specification and still retaining its original case and information plaques. The myriad fittings have been plated in 24-carat gold giving the model a somewhat ‘glitzy’ quality that suits the glamorous name. The ship herself had a somewhat mundane life: more Hollywood Hereford and Worcester, than Hollywood, California. Built by Sir James Laing and Sons, Sunderland, she was designed for, and owned by, Oil and Molasses Tankers Ltd., London. She disappears from Lloyd’s Register in 1964.
