Airfix R.M.S. Queen Elizabeth
- The 83,673 ton Queen Elizabeth was the largest liner in the world when it was built at Clydebank, Scotland and launched in September 1938. She served as a troop ship throughout WWII and was completely reconditioned before entering commercial service in October 1946 on the Cunard Line’s express service between Southampton, Cherbourgh and New York. She was also contracted for over 20 years to carry the Royal Mail thus enabling her to carry the prestigious Royal Mail Ship (RMS) designation, as the second half of the two ships’ weekly express service.
- At 1031ft long, she had accommodation for more than 2000 passengers and a crew of 1290 over 13 decks.
