Thanks Pekka,

I consider myself fortuante to have seen ships like this! I have a shot of an earlier version to post soon. All these shots were taken on a camera which was third hand and no working light meter. All exposures were guessed!

Great photo of one of the big series built in Turku for USSR and few sisters to Finnish interests with some more booms. Unfortunately wasn´t able to see any of them myself.
