Original text on model:
"403 ASAHI [should say No. 413 SAYONARA] scale 1/12 Dr. Williams
ditto scale Crozer [owner of MERRY THOUGHT HMCo. 428]." (Source: Original handwritten annotation on model. Undated.)

"#428s Merry Thought was added by CvdL to the list of vessels built from this model because both Sayonara and Merry Thought were built from the same construction plan and NGH, in his note on the back of the model, also made a reference to Crozer, Merry Thought's owner."
