Goodbye to the most famous ship in the world. The Mauretania starts on her last voyage from Southampton to the ship breakers yard in Rosyth. She's flying the blue ribbon, to show for so many years she held the Atlantic speed record. Her last crew of 60 officers and men, include some of who served in her when setting up her speed records. She's no longer as smart as she was, her hull is rust stained, through months of Idleness. Her funnels are sun bleached, and her masts shortened to allow her to pass under bridges on her way to the last resting place, give her a curious appearance. Among the ships which lead the chorus of saddens as she moves away is the Olympic. Yachts, Treasure steamers, and almost every type of boat join in the send off. Not only in Southampton dock, but along the whole stretch of Southampton water. And so she leaves us, to make way for younger ships, and particularly for the Queen Mary, whom we all hope will soon be carrying on the traditions of Britain on the sea.


This is the RMS Mauretania, represented heading her way to the Rosyth, where she would meet her end after being sold for scrap.
The Exterior is rust stained to represent her being unkempt.

This will be one of my final exterior models to present what these ships truly were.

Leave a diamond or favorite if you enjoy!
