Put me on the list. Bet I can do it quicker than Rod!  :)

Great, Jim! Really happy to see you chime in -- and looking forward to news of your speedy assembly :) .

Would you like to start with this one, which is in the UK at the moment (awaiting news from Helen) :

If you scroll upwards, you will get to see some pictures. We believe that the two jigsaws were published together in 1967.

Like with the other one, I would be interested in having a go at some point.

Again, like with the other one, I would suggest trying to arrange things so that people who are reasonably near to each other to have it in turn to allow hand delivery as far as possible to reduce exposure to the postal system.  The last thing we need is for Postmoan Pratt to lose one of them in the mail system.

Great, Peter !  It looks like we are going to have a number of us having the pleasure of QE2 docking at our homes and us having the pleasure of "building her". 

Hand delivery is a very good idea wherever possible.  Maybe I'll have to make a return voyage on QM2 to hand deliver QE2 jigsaw and accompany her on her proxy crossing.  Someday, I hope !!

This jigsaw too is now starting its cruise. Tomorrow, it will travel to the post office and will sail away to Lynda's in Scotland.

The voyage so far :

-- from Rob in Scotland
-- to Isabelle in Ireland
-- to Lynda in Scotland

Where to next? Here are the scheduled ports of call -- not necessarily in this order :

* June
* Rod
* Jim Bennett
* Peter Mugridge

More puzzlers welcome!

Perhaps we should create a "log book" of our names, dates of doing the jigsaw and maybe the time taken with this one as well? :)

I noted down our own details on the card that has been sent out together with the jigsaw. Looking forward to the additions!

The jigsaw has docked at my house in Scotland and I made a start on it yesterday evening. 

So far the progress has not been a bit slow so I was glad to read that Isabelle and her family took four days to complete as that put the pace into perspective.

What is really nice is how the scene recaptures QE2 at anchor and the interest from small vessels whose passengers wanted to see the ship.  I am going to take time to enjoy the puzzle.  :)

Thanks June, I have taken a couple of photos yesterday and will take another one tomorrow morning when the light is a bit better.  I am about half way through the jigsaw and enjoying the challenge.

I have thoroughly enjoyed putting the jigsaw together .

I started working on the jigsaw late Sunday evening and was only able to put the outline together. Then by Monday I could see the outline of the ship and started to feel a sense of achievement

Today, although  I only had the top part of the jigsaw with the foliage and sky to complete I felt this was the most difficult part especially the sky section. 

But as you can see I now have a big smile on my face as the jigsaw is complete.   ;D

Congratulations, Lynda -- well done! And within a very reasonable time frame too :) .

Was the extra piece still in the packet? I am sure that we must have tried many times, unsuccessfully, to fit it in here or there...

The extra piece was in the box but easily identified as it had a different finish.   I think it could be from a different jigsaw.

I see we have a list of who would like to try the jigsaw.  Let me know who to send this to next and if they send me a personal message with their address I will get the jigsaw parcelled and posted
