    Most of the views of "three island tramp steamers" show the bridge amidship.
    However, one view shows the bridge close to the stern.

    Is there a difference between "three island tramp steamers" and "tramp steamer"?

    Wir/Kel makes a tramp freighter with similar lines, called the Olza. It might meet your needs or serve as a basis for kit-bashing.

    I have the kit, PM me if you have any specific questions.

    It's also VERY inexpensive, just $2.99.
