Description

Caldercraft Brannaren

The Brannaren was representative of a small coastal tanker of the early thirties.

Small coastal tankers from the 1930s were typically used to transport petroleum products and other liquid cargoes along the coastlines of countries. These tankers were smaller in size compared to ocean-going tankers and were designed to navigate shallower waters and smaller ports.

The construction of small coastal tankers in the 1930s saw the use of riveted steel hulls and steam engines for propulsion. They were typically equipped with cargo holds divided into multiple compartments to carry different types of liquid cargoes. Additionally, some tankers were equipped with their own pumps and heating systems to facilitate the loading and unloading of liquids.

These tankers played a crucial role in the transportation of petroleum products and other liquid cargoes to coastal communities and industries, contributing to the growth of the economy and infrastructure in those regions. Despite their smaller size, coastal tankers faced many of the same risks and challenges as larger vessels, including rough seas, weather conditions, and potential oil spills.

Overall, small coastal tankers from the 1930s were an important part of the maritime industry, serving as vital links in the transportation of essential goods and commodities along the coastlines of many countries.

The Caldercraft Brannaren kit features a hull that is fully detailed from GRP moulding. The decks and superstructure are made from high quality precision cut birch plywood with printed overlays. The pipe work around the decks and their valves form the main and unique feature of the Brannaren. A full set of white metal fittings along with all dowels, wire and cordage make for an impressive model. This kit is suitable for both static display and RC fun, some additional materials may be required.
