Five small scale merchant ship models

Found several small scale ship models:

MOL Japan posted several models in a special Covid-19 section:

Two versions of vehicle carrier Beluga Ace:
click here for version 1, and click here for version 2
Scale is about 1/1300



There is also a simple MOL LNG carrier, scale is unknown



The fourth model is a simple ONE container ship, scale is unknown, the line is called One Ocean Network





On the European website of One Ocean Network I found another model of a ship called One Stork.
click here for the model and click here for the manual in English.
the scale of this model is about 1/1700

The scale I mentioned in the first post is an estimation

Did some digging: Ocean Network Express (ONE) is a Japanese company founded in 2016. It's a joint venture, with Nippon Yusen Kaisha, Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and “K” Line participating.
One Stork is a member of the "Bird Class", a class of 15 ships with a capacity of 14.000 TEU

wikipedia article about Ocean Network Express and a wikipedia article about the Bird Class

Even though looking different from the Liquid Natural Gas tanker, the model brought to mind this other tanker where 4 round tanks is part of the description.

Can you imagine thirty-seven thousand metric tonnes of orange juice concentrate?

Quote:
It is not classed as a tanker, however it is effectively a four-hold refrigerated ship, each hold having four vertical freestanding cylindrical fruit juice tanks. Tanks in the aftermost hold are reserved for natural orange juice which is carried at a nominal 0C. 12 tanks out of the total 16, that is those located in the forward three holds, can carry either natural juice or concentrated juice.

The concentrate is loaded and transported at -10C and has the consistency of a gruel. Pumping and piping systems are complex and all surfaces in contact with the juice cargo have to be kept in an aseptic condition.

The vessel has accommodation for 30 people. A trim room and a sizeable swimming pool cater for the crews recreation and fitness.
