               RMS QUEEN MARY ocean liner model

On Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015, Cunard's newest ocean liner--the Queen Elizabeth--arrived and berthed adjacent to the legendary Queen Mary ocean liner.  It was a very rare event.  More information about this historic event is here.

 

Born amidst the uncertainties of a world-wide depression and the whisperings of another world war, the story of RMS Queen Mary is an enduring tale of man’s ability to rise above adversity and achieve a level of creativity that captivates the imagination. The jubilant and triumphant launch of RMS Queen Mary on 26 September 1934 by Her Majesty Queen Mary signified the end of the depression that had gripped the world and the British Empire, and provided a firm re-assertion that Britannia had the finest merchant fleet in the world. For three decades thereafter, RMS Queen Mary would rule the Atlantic, surviving the perils of a world war, ultimately creating a legacy that led to her being called the stateliest liner afloat. In the end, RMS Queen Mary remained the final say in transatlantic luxury and class, proving she was indeed, ‘a noble tribute to the imagination of man.’

Throughout her illustrious career - whether it was wrestling with the splendid SS Normandie for the coveted ‘Blue Riband’ or eluding wily Nazi U-boat captains whilst transporting thousands of essential allied military personnel during the second world war - RMS Queen Mary captivated the imagination and hearts of those who sailed aboard her.

During wartime, Queen Mary carried a total of 765,429 military personnel, sailed a total of 569,429 miles.  She carried up to 15,000 troops at one time.  She transported Winston Churchill three times to conferences.

RMS Queen Mary retired on September 19th, 1967, after completing 1,001 crossings of the Atlantic!

Elegantly capturing the artistic flair of the Art Deco period, RMS Queen Mary had a subtle grace and charm that exuded an aura of sophistication and class that would never again be duplicated. From her triumphant launch to her retirement in Long Beach, California as Hotel Queen Mary, RMS Queen Mary remains one of the most fascinating ocean liners to ever take to sea.
 

 
 
 
   
       
         


This RMS Queen Mary ocean liner model features:

- Superior hollow hull (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

"I received the Queen Mary and I love it. For me, it is a fabulous piece of art executed in a meticulous manner and a super addition to my apartment. I have always been fascinated by the era of the great liners, typified by the Queen Mary. I have one small problem that I need to ask you about. In removing the model from the packing, I accidentally broke two of the lifeboat davits. They are so tiny, I do not know how to replicate them.  Would it be possible for your artisans to send me two replacement davits. I would be happy to pay for them. I can't wait to see the HMS Victory when it is completed. Thank you.
