The Normandie was the most beautiful ocean liner created. And now you can recreate the SS Normandie as she appeared on that historic day in New York with this incredibly accurate and detailed reproduction that measures 35 inches (889mm) in length.
This model took nine years to develop and it is the only accurate, large-scale Normandie kit ever made. But don't just take our word on it, check the details and photos below. The first production model has won Best Resin Ship at IPMS meets, and maritime curators have declared it "Truly Museum Quality." This is a model for master builders who demand the very best.
1,100 individual parts:
This model is 100% new. The Normandie kit designer is an IPMS National award winner and was a beta-tester for the current edition of TURBO-CAD. He took 7 years to create the computer model. These ground-breaking files were primarily responsible for TURBO-CADs decision to go with a 64 bit release. Furthermore, these files are used in TURBO-CAD advertising, promotion and hands-on factory training.
Wood decking, railings and everything to the smallest detail were prototyped and are manufactured directly from this master file. The result is excellent parts fit for a resin model.
The silicon molds were made from 3D printed prototypes for the highest accuracy. The mold silicone was de-aired. Resin casting of the hull and details is done in a pressure chamber. The result is a large improvement over regular poured resin parts. These castings are nearly (but not completely) air-bubble free.
This resin and photoetched kit is aimed at experienced modelers. This is a very limited edition model kit, so order your very own 1/350 scale SS Normandie today.
