SS Nomadic
« on: January 11, 2013, 11:34:00 PM »

Evening All, Just found this whilst poking about t'interweb, A trust set up to Restore SS Nomadic, the last White Star steamer, launched in 1911 in Belfast, and destined to be a tender to Titanic and her sisters......

The Laurentic of 1927 was the last White Star steamer.

she is an amazing tribute to those who have been restoring her over the past few years..when she was first taken to Belfast after being found in France, she was more holy than the Pope....an amazing transformation.....and would make a superb model.

Well just to get you started Neil I've found you some nice 3D images.  http://titanic-model.com/dc/dcboard.php?az=set_linear_mode&forum=100&page=13&topic_id=30288&prev_page=show_mesg
As the guy was doing them a few years ago I would think there are a lot more to be found now. The writer also points us to http://www.nomadicpreservationsociety.co.uk/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1314

The work was done by  Mervyn Pritchard a former Maintenance Officer on SS Nomadic.

Just going back to Nick's 'last' comment. Is Nomadic the last White Star afloat?
