QE2: 1969 - Rare agency model in gray hull livery

Product Description
Cunard Line: A 1:600th scale travel agency model of the QE2 issued during the short time in the early 1980s that she had a gray hull.

The 19" resin model is nicely detailed and is mounted on a 5" by 22" wood base with a 5" tall Plexiglas cover. The maker was the Arthur Henning Company, successor to the famed Art Model Studios. One end cap on the cover is missing as is the Arthur Henning plaque.

The gray hull appeared when the QE2 returned to service in August 1982 after the Falklands campaign. Author John Maxtone-Graham was not a fan of the the color change: "The Sidney Greenstreet principle was at work: a fat man in a white suit looked fatter. The QE2's light-coloured hull sprawled and, worse, showed its middle age."

Every dock scrape and tugboat nudge showed up. A year later the gray hull was painted over in black, never to return again.

The model is in very good condition but the acrylic cover is missing one end cap.
