FLAVIA: 1947 - Mercury 1:1250th scale model

Product Description

Costa Line:  From the onboard gift shop of the 1970s, a 1:1250th scale model of the FLAVIA. 

The 5” model was made by Italy’s Mercury and was offered exclusively on Costa ships.  

A quick history lesson.  The ship took to the seas in 1947 as Cunard's combo liner MEDIA, designed to haul cargo and attract rich travelers.  It didn't work.  Cogedar Line bought the cast-off Cunarder in 1961 and performed one of the most radical transformations of the 1960s to create the sleek passenger liner FLAVIA.  When her around-the-world route was disrupted by the closure of the Suez Canal, Costa bought her.  In December 1968 the FLAVIA began her highly successful Caribbean cruise service out of Miami.  The FLAVIA sailed for Costa until 1982, then went into long lay-up which ended only when the ship caught fire and capsized in 1989. 

Very good condition but with a snapped foremast.
