Description

SS United States 1952

The SS United States is a luxury passenger liner launched in 1952 for the United States Lines designed to capture the trans-Atlantic speed record. The ship was inspired by the British liners the Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth . Built at a cost of $78 million, the ship was the largest ocean liner entirely in the United States, the fastest ocean liner to cross the Atlantic. Her construction partially subsidized by the United States government, the ship was designed to allow conversion to a troop carrier should the need arise. The United States operated uninterrupted in transatlantic passenger service until 1969; since 1996 she docked at Pier 82 on the Delaware River in Philadelphia.

This is beautiful United States model for your maritime collection. Our master craftsmen handcrafted this nicely detailed model from scratch using historical photographs, drawings, and original plan. In addition, we selected finest woods and material to build this model. Also, we used plank-on-frame construction method which is similar to the building of the actual ship.

You can find many details of the model such as: All windows, doors, and portholes are cut out precisely thanks to hand-built hollow superstructure and hull; Open promenade decks visible through superstructure windows; Lattice grating on ducts and vents; Detail Lifeboats hung from launching davits; Delicate railings on forecastle, aftcastle and top superstructure; Rigging and stay-lines on all masts and smokestacks. Furthermore, we hand-painted multi-layered to match the color of the real ship.

Each model requires hundreds of hours to finish and must go through a demanding quality control process before leaving the workshop. We mount the model on a solid wood base and she is ready to display. It’ll make a perfect gift for home or office decorator, boat enthusiast, or passionate collector.
