RMS MAURETANIA ocean liner model

 

RMS Mauretania was launched on September 20, 1906 to become the largest ship in the world. Particularly notable was her steam turbine propulsion, which was a revolutionary development in ocean liner design.

The RMA Mauretania left Liverpool on her maiden voyage on November 16 th, 1907.  Later that month she captured the record for the fastest eastbound crossing of the Atlantic.

Only 22 months later, in September, 1909, the RMS Mauretania captured the Blue Riband for the fastest westbound crossing - a record that was to stand for more than 20 years (broken by the German ocean liner Bremen in 1929.)

The RMS Mauretania (along with her near-twin sister, RMS Lusitania) were the only ships with direct-drive steam turbines to hold the Blue Riband, later ships had reduction-geared turbines.

In September 1934, Cunard withdrew the RMS Mauretania from service following a final eastward crossing from New York to Southampton. In July, 1935, the great RMS Mauretania sadly headed for the breaker's yard at Rosyth.

Like all of our ocean liner model, this RMS Mauretania model features:

- Plank-on-frame, hollow hull construction, (very important) weighing less than 10 lbs  (A solid hull of this model would be over 30 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
