OCEAN MONARCH ocean liner

 

Ocean Monarch was built by Vickers-Armstrongs Ltd, Walker, and launched on 27 July 1950. She was 13,654 gross ton and 516.1ft long, capable of 18 knots, and  accommodating 414 first class passengers. 

Ocean Monarch was the first postwar-built ship designed especially for the American cruise market.  Based in New York, she traveled on the New York - Bermuda route.   She served with Furness Withy until 1966, during which she was awarded a gold medal by the American Institute for Designing for her "outstanding beauty and unusual design features of a cruise ship".

In the Summer of 1981, Ocean Monarch started running for SUR-Seereisen, Germany, who announced a series of Mediterranean cruises to take place.  Her name was changed to Reina del Mar. 

On 1 June 1981, a fire broke out on Reina del Mar.  The ship was subsequently scuttled off Kynosoura.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 




Like all of our ocean liner models, this Ocean Monarch model has the following qualities:

- Double plank-on-frame (very important), hollow hull construction, weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 30 lbs which feel like a toy.)

- The hollow superstructure is comprised of
hundred of individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not several solid pieces stacking on top one another.

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures. 
We are not shy to show large photos.   Nothing to hide!

-  No computer-printed paper deck.

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
