Queen mary, the new one!
« on: November 18, 2013, 09:29:51 PM »

Hello!
As many other I decided to have a go at the 1:400 Queen Mary 2. When I opened the box I soon realized that I would never be able to do this kit justice, all those windows that needed trimming, all those tiny details to paint and so on. I then decided to make her into something different, a fantasy project. Therefore I trimmed off the "2" from her name and so shes called "Queen Mary". Shes a mix of QE2 and QM2 i think. All the looks and features of QM2 obviously, and some similarity to QE2 with her lower profile and funnel aft.
Im currently painting her decks and executing sea trials. Dont know how many details she will get, but the lifeboats is a must.
Hope you like her!
All the best!

Hama did say it was a mix of QM2 and QE2, so it would seem the azipods have been replaced by conventional props.

Like Peter says, this is a new ship and the designers choose a more conventional propulsion system.  In all, a product of my imagination and nothing to do with QM2. :-))

A short video, a bit boring perhaps. Will make a better one later.
