Queen Mary L Model Display
The Queen Mary is considered by many as the pinnacle of British passenger shipbuilding. The Cunard Line?s Star Flagship, Queen Mary, was laid down for construction as the Great depression gripped Europe, rendering circumstances unfeasible for ship building. Thus, the construction was held up from 1931 to 1934. The thousand foot passenger ship was built to trump its French rival to the crown of luxury, the Normandie. One of the most appealing characteristics of the Queen Mary was her great speed. Coupled with great luxury and comfort, this factor earned amazing profits for her owners until the outbreak of the Second World War, which found her in a New York Harbor. After being idle for half a year, the Queen Mary re-entered service as a troopship, traveling unescorted from New York to Sydney. Ferrying troops between the Suez and Australia until the United States decided to take part in the fight, the Germans reportedly offered a quarter million reward for sinking this ridiculously fast passenger boat which their submarines could not keep up with. With its speed and finesse along the waters, the Queen Mary bested any warship afloat and adopted the nickname, ?the Gray Ghost.?40?L. This model of the Queen Mary captures almost all the details of the original ship. Painted in red, white and black, this model was 100% handcrafted from scratch using the ?plank on frame? construction method. Come with as many windows as original, it?s amazing that the craftsmen be able to finish the model within a couple hundreds of hours. Looking at the deck, you will see 3 painted smoke stacks, a dozen of life boats on each side, masts and flag poles. If you look closer, there are many different stairs connected main decks and others. All the doors and stairs and made of brass. All railings and the air vents are painted white. The wood use on the deck is very fine. It?s not one big piece of wood; instead there are many pieces of wood put together. You can even see the different grain in the wood use. The model is fully assembled and come with a wooden stand with metal name plate. Just the perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast or passionate collector.
