QUEEN ELIZABETH 2
The Last of the Great Transatlantic Ocean Liners
 

 

The Queen Elizabeth 2, often called "the QE2", was the flagship of the Cunard Line from 1969 until succeeded by RMS Queen Mary 2 in 2004.  She was the last oil-fired passenger steamship to cross the Atlantic in regularly scheduled liner service.  She served almost 40 years as the Cunard flagship and traveled all over the world.

At 70,327 tons and 963 ft long, with a top speed of 32.5 knots (60 km/h), QE2 is one of the largest and fastest passenger vessels afloat.  She is larger than the RMS Titanic, but smaller than her predecessor RMS Queen Elizabeth, in order to allow her to pass through the Panama Canal.  The QE2 can carry approx. 1,700 passengers and 1,015 crew members.

As of 2005, the QE2 still makes voyages to places such as Sydney, Australia, New York, Hong Kong, and regular cruises around the Mediterranean.  She is retired from active Cunard service on November 27th, 2008.  In July 2009, she sailed for Cape Town to become a floating hotel as part of a Dubai World project.

The QE2 was considered the last of the great transatlantic ocean liners.  In developing the new, huge cruise ships like the Freedom of the Seas, it seems like something has been lost on the way. The Queen Mary 2, although dazzling and fantastic in her own right, is still not comparable to that wonderful classic liner - Queen Elizabeth 2.
 

 
   

 


Like all of our ocean liner models, this QE2 has the following distinguished qualities:

- Scratch built from official plans

- Superior hollow hull construction (very important), weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 40 lbs which feels like a heavy toy rather than an art piece.)

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

- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to the hollow structures.

-  No computer-printed paper deck

- >95% of parts are wood and metal
