Cunard Queen Mary 2, Revell 1:400

Recommended Posts

I've finished my second ship build, Revell's 1:400 Queen Mary 2.

 

I'm not sure if there's already a completed build on here - the search results brought up a lot of unrelated threads, so apologies if this is a repetition.

 

This build took me a long time, having started in September, but I've lost most of the WIP pictures after a problem with my phone.

 

It sits nicely alongside my 1:450 QE2, and I will try to take more photos in better light.

Again, I used the water effect for the pools, and I bought the Artwox wood decking, which was an absolute dream to work with.

 

I regret not being able to find one for the QE2, however, I got the Trumpeter 1:350 Richelieu as a Christmas present from my parents, and I was able to find an Artwox wood deck for that, which I am looking forward to building soon.

Yer, it was pretty unwieldy during the build, it nearly got dropped right towards the end!

 

I was hoping to have a collection of all the same scale, but the only common scale I could find of ships was 1:1,200.

 

1:700 would probably be more practical.

What about Revell's Aida (AIDAblu, AIDAsol, AIDAmar, or AIDAstella) cruise liner? Their modern design and livery will contrast against the Cunard elegance! https://www.revell.de/en/products/model-building/ships/civilian-ships/id/05230.html.

 

 

Hmm, now, I like the shape of the ship itself, but I think the AIDA line livery is really unattractive!  I saw a 1:400 AIDAdiva/luna in the model store when I was back home for Christmas, and I was considering buying it,  while leaving off those lips and squiggles, but I don't like having something incomplete...

Oh yes, I've just had a look through your links - does it have railings in that scale?  

 

At 1:400, it was pretty fiddly!  I have the shakes when I try to do anything delicate with my fingers, so installing the railings was a nightmare!
