1/600 06201 Airfix RMS Queen Elizabeth
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed Exc+
Still factory sealed. Like all of the 1/600 scale Airfix Ocean Liners, this one is well detailed. Features full hull, propeller and rudder, all fittings and excellent superstructure details. 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. Here service life was suppose to end as a static display on the opposite US shore as 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 Bond film as a MI-6 hide-out.
