ocean liner model ship

The SS Rex was an Italian ocean liner launched in 1931. It held the westbound Blue Riband between 1933 and 1935.  The SS Rex was found to be one of the most beautiful ships, particularly noted for her outdoor swimming pools and lido areas. Her owners worked at stressing the "sunny southern route" to Europe.

The SS Rex operated transatlantic crossings from Italy with its running mate, the Conte di Savoia. On 8 September 1944, off Koper, SS Rex was hit by 123 rockets launched by RAF aircraft, caught fire from stem to stern, rolled onto the port side, and sank in shallow water. The ship was broken up at the site beginning in 1947.

"I want to thank you for the package of "little people" which just arrived in yesterday's mail. They look great, and they will balance the others already in place. People who have already seen the ship, are so anxious to "count them" and find them! It really is a lot of fun, and promotes a lot of conversation... I will continue to recommend your services to anyone who may be inspired to order a ship model after seeing the one I purchased. As promised, I will send you photos of the completed project. Sincerely, Louis"
