1/600 S1-198 Airfix RMS Queen Elizabeth Ocean Liner Craftmaster Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good++
Fantastic Craftmaster artwork of the famous Queen entering NY Harbor. Very highly detailed and well molded. NOTE: the decks have been airbrushed wood tan. The quality of work done is excellent. There is no other painting and no assembly. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The famous Queen Elizabeth was the largest liner in the world when launched in 1938. She saw extensive service during WWII as a troop transport. After the war, she and the original Queen Mary formed the backbone of Cunard Atlantic Service in unparalleled luxury. Some customers favored the Queen Elizabeth for her modern lines and more modern interior fittings. She was supposed to be on display in the USA on the opposite shore of the Queen Mary, but buyers never materialized. While serving as a 'College Ship' she burned in Hong Kong Harbor where she was scrapped, but only after appearing in a James Bomb Film as a MI-6 hide-out.
