Retired Bakery owner Arie van der Hoek started his working career on ms 'Monica'. This 400 ton seaworthy heavy-crude tanker was built in 1932. Only the technical details and some fotos remain which posed a challenge to modelling the ship. A photo was selected as a base and in an 32-hour effort the Sketchup drawing was extracted from it as ready-to-assemble lasercut building model in scale 1:50.
Arie van der Hoek started building the 3mm plywood laser-cut in april 2018. Technical details of the ship can be found with the IMO number: 5239539
