QE2 - Model For Sale
« on: Jan 23, 2014, 08:42 AM »
Check out this "Travel Agent's Model".... yours for the princely sum of £50.00 but hurry

EBay - QE2 Travel Agent's Model

Don't you just love that funnel and mast and the blue hull is a nice touch, really captures the essence of the ship don't you think?.

I wonder how many voyages were sold on the back of this?   ;D

The funnel base is on back to front isn't it?


Well... she could sail faster astern than most ships can forwards, so...

Good lord, were they having a headache when it was being built....

My goodness, it's got 10 bids so far and is currently at £124.

I do wonder, though, looking at it whether it might have been converted from a model of a ferry?

The modeler was likely drunk.  The more I drink, the better it looks though....

I'm thinking of going into production. Not a lot of skill or accuracy needed and could be a nice little earner?

It says it's a travel agents model.  Imagine your surprise if you thought you'd booked to go on that strange looking ship, then found yourself on QE2!

I think it's a Chinese model and I'm sure I've seen them a number of times. I think it's worth next to nothing...

Rob, amazingly it would appear at least 3 people disagree with you to the sum of £124!

Couldn't resist another peek at the model... it SOLD For £124, a 124 pounds!!!!  Only a few days ago a beautiful model of QE2 in her white funnel days, properly mounted inside a glass case and built by a specialist company in New York went for £47

I must admit to having a chuckle again, can you imagine whoever built it stepping back, taking a good hard look and saying "yep, I nailed it with this build.  What's next?"
