TSS MARDI GRAS
Carnival Cruise Lines is perhaps the most successful cruise
line in the world, carrying more passengers than any
other. In 1972, Carnival's
very first ship of --the TSS Mardi Gras--started
her maiden voyage.
This Mardi Gras ship model features:
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
- Hollow superstructure is comprised of many
individual thin pieces of wood glued together, not
several solid pieces of wood stacking on top one
- Windows are cutouts (not black decals), thanks to
the hollow structures.
- >95% of parts are wood and metal.
36" long x 14" tall x 7"
wide (including base's dimensions.)
S & H is $90
