RMS Queen Elizabeth 2, often referred to simply as the 'QE2', is a retired Cunard ocean liner, now owned by Nakheel, a division of Dubai World. She was named after the earlier Cunard liner RMS Queen Elizabeth (see Name section), and served as the flagship of the line from 1969 until succeeded by RMS Queen Mary 2 in 2004. Built in Clydebank, Scotland, she was considered the last of the great transatlantic ocean liners built for over four decades before the construction of the QM2.
Before she was refitted with a diesel power plant in 1986, she was also the last oil-fired passenger steamship to cross the Atlantic in scheduled liner service. During almost 40 years of service, the QE2 traveled the world and latterly operated predominantly as a cruise ship, sailing out of Southampton, England.
She had no identical sister ship or running mate and never ran a year-round weekly transatlantic express service to New York, however the QE2 did continue the Cunard tradition of regular scheduled transatlantic crossings every year of her service life. QE2 retired from active Cunard service on 27 November 2008, where it was planned for her to begin conversion to a floating hotel which would have seen her eventually be moored at Palm Jumeirah, Dubai.
We are proud to present this royal model of the Queen Elizabeth II. Our craftsmen has spent more that 500 hours to complete this gorgeous model using plank on frame method. Again, all of our models were built using this class method: plank on frame.
This is a museum quality model that captures most of the details of the ship. All little details are accurate to the original. It was painted very fine in its original color. The deck was made beautifully in strips of mahogany. All little details: railings, windows, anchors, propellers were made to look exactly as the original.
