By her naval architect, Stephen Payne no less. But remember she had a refit adding cabins up top last year. And I see in his month's 'Ships Monthly', etc there is a new book by him on the QE2.

 

Think it was here we'd a good debate about her actual hull colour, search it out - it is Cunard Federal Grey!

 

ps The pdf Revell manual is here as product/kit # 05223  https://www.revell.de/en/service/download-area.html  (bookmark that one for future reference) and the direct download https://www.revell.de/fileadmin/import/images/bau/05223_%23BAU_QUEEN_MARY_2.PDF (4.55Mb)

 

 

Thanks for the heads up. I will probably get it on payday, I LOVE the QE2 also, so I'm interested in those literatures. I have downloaded the instructions already, but I don't have access to printer without the local library helping. So Cunard Federal Grey...I'm guessing that is equivalent to a very very dark charcoal grey? I have seen Vallejo 71056 Black Grey

I got mine from Hobbyeasy in Hong Kong - great service, very well wrapped and here within a week http://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/pgx5uwwiahco7pbkofmg.html Getting expensive though.

(It's a PE set for the 1:400 AIDA DIVA/ BLU, etc that is like hens teeth, revell #00717, so if you ever see it nab it for me, thanks!)

Thanks for that, I'm guessing it came to about £60 posted? I'll look into it on payday also

Checking back, it was GBP £37.16 at the time (12/12/15) with the better exchange rate, and 5.23 for airmail delivery.

Best read the thread for the paint colour debate! The Heller/Airfix kit gives Humbrol Matt Navy Blue M77 & SATIN COAL BLACK at 10:1.

Nice link Clipper, but there is a plain sheet available somewhere which is just scale planking, iirc it came in 1/700 and either 1/400 or 1/350 scale lasered plank width pattern. Ideal for doing the bits not covered by the dedicated deck sets such as the balconies along the sides of QM2.

Should there not be enough spare on these dedicated Artworx sheets (there's 2 in the packet mind) after use? Probably 4 runs each side of that lower section :-)
