Empress of Japan, Canada Pacific Line
RMS Empress of Japan was an ocean liner built in 1929–1930 by Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Company in Scotland for Canadian Pacific Steamships. She was the second of two vessels to be named Empress of Japan and regularly traversed the trans-Pacific route between the west coast of Canada and the Far East until 1942. In the same year she was renamed RMS Empress of Scotland. In 1957, the Hamburg Atlantic Line purchased the ship and re-named her TS Hanseatic
Now you can get this beautiful Empress of Japan 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 to build the model to look exact 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.
