Also known as a fully pressurised gas carrier, this tanker was designed to transport liquified gas. The ship were originally oil tankers, which have been converted and fitted with small pressurised tanks for the transport of liquified petroleum gas (LPG). This allowed for the transport of oil by-products over long distances, which was ideal as a domestic and commercial fuel. It has a high calorific content value and low sulphur content, which makes combustion clean and efficient.
Gas Tankers from the Premier Ship Model Catalog
Most fully pressurised gas carriers are equipped with two or three horizontal, cylindrical or spherical cargo tanks as you can see on the model. The capacity of these tanks range from 20,000 to 100,000 tonnes for a ship that ranges between 220 to 260 m. This wooden ship model is 100 cm in length, 18 cm in width and 34 cm in height and is an identical replica of the Gas Tanker.

The models are constructed out of locally-sourced wood and are then varnished before being hand painted, for additional protection.
