Virtual QE2 Model
« on: Sep 10, 2020, 01:05 PM »
I've been working on a virtual QE2 - 1969 decor - using Sketchup 3D Design Software since May of this year.  Lots of fits and starts and do-overs in learning the software and guesstimating many unknowns (measurements, layouts, colors, etc.) but I think I'm finally on a roll.

Here are some screen captures of the progress to date.

I'm hoping to tap the knowledge base of Forum members in filling in the remaining gaps in my memory, deck plans and photos from 1969-1979.

Does anyone recall what color D Stairway was on 4 or 5 Deck in the 70's?  Did it retain its black and white color scheme all the way down or was it the whitish walls of 4 and 5 deck passageways?

It is really interesting to see you modelling the interior of QE2, and at a particular stage in her life too. All the other models are of the exterior, so you are doing something rather special. I am sorry I cannot help you with an answer to your question, but I shall be very interested to watch your modelling as you continue.

Great work, Bob, on your virtual model ! It is so interesting to see your work take shape, and I am especially interested in the model being of the early QE2 !  :)

This took me about 45 min but I think I got the door knob shape.  This is a pantry door on 3 Deck and not a cabin door.  Many of those to come.

Here's a reference for the above door - 3 Deck, Stairway D looking forward.  Also a side-by-side comparison of today's QE2 vs. yesteryear.  Still need some ceiling and wall details but its getting there.
