Jigsaw under the Mauretania
« on: Dec 24, 2019, 12:43 PM »
I am planning to use some of this Christmas break for my usual jigsaw puzzling, and I am most grateful to June, who gifted me with a brand-new QE2 photo competition prize that I have just set out on the table. This is an interior, and for once, I shall have neither sea nor sky to contend with.  :)

WOW that looks a bit black, good luck Isabelle ;)

I have allowed the refit crew to go first for the low hanging fruit. This at least will fill part of the frame and will also enable them to sort out all the other items that have been jumbled together, so as to identify them and allocate them eventually to their correct places.

This is how it started :

When engaged on a refit, I foolishly try not to look at the plans and diagrams, in other words at the original photograph. And so, I have only just discovered that there is quite an acreage of sea in this picture, as the Mauretania is surrounded by green waves...

I think I'd be tempted to keep that beauty in one piece when completed, put a glass top on it & use it as a coffee table top/ conversation piece,

I do believe the refit is taking place at The Prondzynski International Shipyard, Prestige Division.   :)

Mauretania herself is making an appearance! First time my shipyard has refitted a historical ship :) !

Just a little bit of progress has been made. I am amused by "my own" reflection in the jigsaw as it takes shape.

It was a very clever idea for a jigsaw!!

I can't believe it's so long since I put pieces into that Jigsaw. Feels like yesterday.

It's a really tough jigsaw... while the colours can all be clearly distinguished by daylight, it is almost impossible at night time. I am still progressing slowly, but need to speed up a bit, as the table will be needed for other purposes from Saturday :) .
