Hi Folks,

Hoping that I haven't lost momentum on this one as its been ages since I said I was going to get it made but the jigsaw has finally arrived (or rather I've managed to get to my storage unit to pick it up!!)

I don't know if my other half will have the time to assemble it first but regardless does anyone want to be give it a try??

Hi Gav -

That is an awesome view of our beloved QE2 made into puzzle form !  Thank you very much for having it made up and making it available for all of us devotees to give it a go.

I would love to be on the list for her refit, but probably those in the UK should be on the list first.  Then QE2 (jigsaw) can make a transatlantic crossing to my shipyard for refit (if you wouldn't mind ultimately sending her abroad).

Looking excellent, Gav, and what a lovely offering to the Forum members!

I hope to enjoy it some time in the not too distant future -- you could definitely put me on the waiting list please.

Excellent image - as usual, please add me to the waiting list as well.  No hurry.

Thanks for your kind comments and patience!! Its taken longer than I envisaged to get around to having it made but I think it'll be well worth it!!

My other half Shelagh has indicated she would still like to be the first so the current list is as follows:

(1) Shelagh
(2) June
(3) Isabelle
(4) Peter

And of course anyone else wishing to be added!!

Cant wait for this one to set sail!!

Hi Gav - Thanks very much for your message and update on our QE2's (jigsaw) refit.  QE2 has probably been out zipping around the Atlantic and when she decides to come in for a refit, I think she is heading to your shipyard !  June   ;D

Hi all,

I am interested in a QE2 jigsaw. QE2 was last in Melbourne on Feb 29, 2008 so it's high time she came back, if only in a thousand pieces! Is it likely to be available before Christmas?

Hi Lachlan -

It is great to add another person to The QE2 Story Jigsaw Club. 

We have five jigsaws at the moment.  Please go to the jigsaw topic - https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/index.php/board,112.0.html
and see which one you would like to sign up for first. 

Our beloved QE2 is adding up a great amount of additional mileage by proxy as she (jigsaw) travels around the world.

Hello Folks,

I regret to inform that due to work commitments (job would be great if it weren't for the customers!) the jigsaw launch has been delayed.
She will take to the water during the next high tide in Greenock which will be early January!

Apologies to all those on the list!

Hi Gav -

No problems !  She is just waiting for a few more fittings before she can be launched.

Finally QE2 Jigsaw#5 first fit is under way!

Apologies for the poor pic quality.

As soon as complete she'll make her maiden voyage to the next builder!

Thanks for the photos Gav.  It is so like a cat to want to be in the middle of whatever is happening.   :)

First fit out is complete!

It looks better in reality as the reflection spoils the photo a bit but its impressive nonetheless!!

It is still assembled at the moment but who (if anyone) wants a shot next?

Hi Gav -

Thanks for sharing the photos of the first refit of QE2 (Jigsaw # 5) and it is a fine job !  Your crew has done admirable work, especially the ship's cat.   ;D  I bet QE2 (jigsaw) really enjoyed all the attention being lavished on her.

I would love to have a go at the jigsaw, but perhaps she should make the rounds in the UK first ?
