Thanks swralph and general melchett. I think it a rather good idea to take any of these old liner kits home with you if given the chance. They are finite and are only going to get more expensive for sure. I have seen some crazy asking prices for them.

My father is a retired carpenter/joiner and one of his favourite observations is that you can always tell a craftsman's true skill by looking at the way they organise their workbench and how neatly they work.

 

Need I say more :)

Hello Chris,

I think Airfix would be proud of you.

Making such a beautiful model out of this box is stunning.

Highest Compliments with this achievement.

Regards, Orion

Thanks so much Onion. It's a bit stressful working on such a rare kit but I'm pleased with the end result.

Stunning build - I appreciate seeing OOB builds.

 

Innocent question as I know very little about cruise ships.  I was surprised that the lifeboats do not have covers but initially put that down to the Airfix model.  But I’ve done a bit of googling and every archive picture of the actual ship shows open lifeboats, so the model is accurate.  So what happens when it rains - do they fill up with water?

 

Cheers,

 

Nigel
