Hi Isabelle - Thank you very much for your post.  I do believe both QE2s (jigsaws) are moored at their respective houses and are in the process of refit.  I too would like to see a 750 piece jigsaw and I think the one I have chosen from the calendar will provide enough detail to make it enjoyable to fit together but add a little bit of "frustration" into the mix (there always has to be some water where there is our QE2).  June  :D

sounds good to me  :)
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Hi Lynda -

Thank you very much for your post.  Now I have to contact the person who took the photo and get their permission, then Alan so kindly said he would get it ready to print, and then we will be on our way.  I think it would be very nice to have the person's name who took the picture and Alan's name in one lower corner and QE2 Story in the other lower corner.

Hi June,
Just a couple of  ideas....Might it be a good idea to have a puzzle that is as near as possible similar to the size of the jigsaws we did on board?
They were completed on a big table, below the great picture of the Mauritania.
Isabelle, am incorrect in thinking you might have taken a photograph during your autumn sojourn in 2008?
This would give us some idea of the measurements....possibly 3' x 2'? Almost certainly 1000 pieces!
If you chose a large size, instead of one image of QE2, might it then be an idea to have a collage of images printed onto jigsaw card!

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.

Well, all these ideas sound great!

I was suspecting 2,000 pieces -- but amazingly I captured a box, and what does it say? 1,000 pieces just as you guessed :) .

Well, I'd certainly prefer a 1000 piece puzzle rather than the smaller numbers...  :)

Yeah - Isabelle - You are so Cool, and Such a Star!
(Was it in your Autumn Sojourn collection, btw?)

So June - it'll be brilliant if you can make the puzzle as difficult as is possible  ;) - With Loads of Federal Gray hull, much white aluminiun, fair amount of Red, preferably with a hint of orange, and as much sea, waves and sky as is possible! It may be that anothoer photo from the Gallery fits the bill - and an an acknowledgement with something like 'Courtesy of....'
This will be a masterpiece - and QE2 will love it!

Hi Rosie -

Thank you very much for your post and all of your great ideas.  I think having a jigsaw the same size as the ones on board is great - 1000 pieces sound good.  I was also thinking of a large puzzle with a collage of pictures from the calendar.  Perhaps there are two jigsaws in the making. 

June   :D

Thank you, Isabelle, for posting the great picture of the jigsaw on board.  Yes, 1000 pieces. 

Peter, thanks for your comment of size.  I think we are heading toward 1000 pieces.

Adam, thank you for your post.  You had mentioned earlier about 500 pieces.  We have two jigsaw circulating now that are 500 pieces, so I think we are ready to move up in our challenge.

June  :)

Hi Rosie _

Thank you very much for this post too.  I appreciate your interest very much !  It was great that Isabelle provided instantaneously the perfect example !!   :)

I think I have a good selection of difficulty and encouragement.  And definitely, yes, we do need to put "courtesy of" for the photographer, and a thank you to Alan for readying it for print, and QE2 story also on the puzzle.  It will be one of a kind ! and I am very excited.

June   ;D

Update - I have just contacted Ravensburger regarding shipping a puzzle to the US.  It does not appear that they ship to the US.  An option would be that I set it up and pay for it and then have it shipped to Rob, Isabelle, Lynda, or Alan.  I will wait to hear back from Ravensburger and I am awaiting permission to use a particular photo.  June :D

I have just now heard from a Ravensburger representative, and they have a US branch located in New Hampshire.   :)

Hi Adam -

The picture is chosen, it will soon be prepped for production and be made available to be uploaded to Ravenburger for the puzzle.

So, soon, there will be a third QE2 making her way around the globe !!

The new QE2 jigsaw is almost ready to be sent off for production.  I think Forum members will really like it when it goes into circulation.

Each member must be sure there is adequate docking space at your house to accommodate our QE2's arrival (jigsaw) at your home.

Our QE2 may be stuck in Dubai, but she is still travelling the world by proxy !!   ;D
