About this creation
RMS Aquitania was a Cunard Line ocean liner designed by Leonard Peskett and built by John Brown & Company in Clydebank, Scotland. She was launched on 21 April 1913 and sailed on her maiden voyage to New York on 30 May 1914. Aquitania was the third in Cunard Line's "grand trio" of express liners, preceded by RMS Mauretania and RMS Lusitania, and was the last surviving four-funnelled ocean liner.Widely considered one of the most attractive ships of her time, Aquitania earned the nickname "Ship Beautiful".

In her 36 years of service, Aquitania survived military duty in both world wars and was returned to passenger service after each. Aquitania's record for the longest service career of any 20th-century express liner stood until 2004.

My versions of Mauretania and Lusitania were built in 2008 and dismantled in 2011/12. I built Aquitania as I wished I had kept the Mauretania and Lusitania and wanted to rebuild at least one of them. Aquitania is depicted in wartime livery, looking as she did in 1946.

















Comments are appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for all the comments everyone! Aquitania will be joined in a few weeks by Mauretania which is getting rebuilt. I'm incorporating what I learnt building Aquitania and what needs improvement.

If the real one looked like the Lusitania, this is a stellar job for scale. But I'd like it even if it didn't. Enjoyed the write-up, too.
