This 40 inch model of the Queen Mary captures almost all the details of the original ship. Painted in red, white and black and has as many windows as the original ship. 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. Fine wood is used on the deck. 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 used.
The model is meticulously made and 100% handcrafted from scratch using the “plank on frame” construction method. It comes to you fully assembled and includes a wooden stand with metal name plate.
It's Just the perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast or passionate collector.
Queen Mary is an ocean liner that sailed the North Atlantic Ocean from 1936 to 1967 for Cunard Line (then Cunard White Star Line). Built by John Brown and Company, Clydebank, Scotland, she was designed to be the first of Cunard's planned two-ship weekly express service from Southampton to Cherbourg to New York, in answer to the mainland European superliners of the late twenties and early thirties.
The Queen Mary was a beautiful ship inside and out. Her interiors had over fifty different woods, collected from all over the British Empire. Nautical touches were displayed around the vessel and the round portholes were proudly exposed.
Queen Mary and her slightly larger and younger running mate RMS Queen Elizabeth commenced this two-ship service after their release from World War II troop transport duties and continued it for two decades until Queen Mary's retirement in 1967. The ship is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is permanently berthed in Long Beach, California serving as a museum ship and hotel.
