  1. Hello,

    My name is Dian Roberts, I am the proud daughter of Reginald Roberts, who sailed on the Chemical Transport from 1969 to 1987.
    My Dad dies in 1999.
    I am looking for a tanker ship model like the Chemical Transport, in black and white to put my father’s ashes into.
    Is this possible ?

    • My suggestion would be to pose your question on boatnerd’s information search. There are large numbers of people who visit here regularly and maybe someone has or knows how to find the answer to your question.

      Go to, then to Information Search. There is an explanation there of how to make a post.

      Good luck.
