I'll hope I get an A for this! Just as I read your post, I was going to post my progress again.

Now I added the windows and the "CUNARD" you mentioned. It isn't still perfect though, so I'll tweak it some more!

Hi ThijsM
Do you think Queen Elizabeth 2 would fit along the bow?

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Great!
The Bit Beneath the Bridge is soooo much better - wish we could all go and stand on it!

You will probably also need to add the mast before you can sit back and relax! I'd say that's a tough job though...

And thanks for letting us follow your work as you do it. It has been wonderful to see the progress you have made!

Hey, ThijsM!
Is that an iceberg on the Horizon?
Here's the Mast Topic!

And as you say, the lovely round white receivers ( I think??) would be a good addition too!
Your anchor cables are so neat!

Don't mind the 'iceberg', it's some rendering mistake :D
I need to find a suitable background to render with, but I'll first finish the model itself.

Thanks a lot for that topic about the mast, I hadn't a lot of photos but I knew it had a difficult shape to model. I won't go into detail that much because on such a render from afar, that isn't visible. ;)

If you want to have a look at the font used for the Cunard sign, you can find it here :

... and the following photos. But that may be taking it a bit too far  ;D  !

Thanks for the photo's of the font! It can come in handy!

Now, I need to make an advertisment for the QE2 with my model. It has to be in '60 - '70 style. Anyone has some good examples or suggestions?

ThijsM - you probably would need permission to use any of this
but it will give you a chance to see how she lookied in the days when she was young!

Then there are some promotional ads and things here on the Forum -
and maybe you'll be lucky and find something on ebay under QE2 and Posters

Hi guys,

The exam is near! Monday I need to present the teachers the QE2! Here are some renders after postproduction in photoshop. The last one is the ad I made, but it need some text under the photo (don't know what yet :p)

The first one is a render I edited in photoshop, I used it in the ad!

Looks very good, I must say!

But just for your text : Queen Elizabeth II is the Monarch, while Queen Elizabeth 2 is the ship. Perhaps this can still be changed...?

Hope all goes well for you in the exams! You have certainly worked very hard, and very well  ;D  !

Hi ThijsM

It's truly amazing!
And as Isabelle mentions - As you have done on the bow - It is  2, not II!
It's an interesting 'Z' in the font in the Ad!

BEST OF LUCK!

Hi ThijsM  :)

How did you get on?

Hope both you and QE2 passed with Top Marks,
and that you won't have to wait as long for your result as we have been waiting for News of QE2!

Well, they found it really good! Except for some minor detail errors and finishing details that were finished to fast. But I think that has to be an A.

I'll now it on the 28th of June :p
