This was made for QE2's owners and posted on their Facebook and Instagram a couple of months ago (I linked the Instagram version to the forum in one of the 2018 pre-opening external photos topics which unfortunately didn't show the whole video due to Instagram's video length limits). It's great to see it on Vimeo (allows for better quality video) and to know who was behind its production, seeing QE2 in drydock, and time-lapse footage is always amazing!

Edit: There seems to be evidence of the removal of the "SOUTHAMPTON" steel plates starting from 1 minute 12 seconds in.

First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2 in her new life, in Dubai, in January 2020 and August 2022.
