Not as big as the Dragon ferry Dragon was 80 inches. Project QE2 is smaller at 65 inches , QE2 is soon underway for a full restoration with lots of fine detail to be added and will keep you all up to date with her fit out , Unlike Dragon she will be restored to pristine condition, just like she was in 1987 .

Here’s the Dragon ferry before I regretfully let her go !!! , as you can see after a full restoration she was weathered to make her look as if she was at sea . Do miss this boat was a real labour of love ... oh well onward to the QE2 !!!

I look forward to watching the refurb Tony. We had the pleasure, and privilege, of sailing from Sydney to Southampton on QE2 on the homeward leg of her final world cruise, in 2008. What a wonderful experience that was, she was a beautiful ship, sadly now languishing in Dubai. I took the photo from the tender as we were going ashore in Lahaina, on the island of Maui, Hawaii.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
