I am surprised to hear of the model build - I never heard back from you in your other thread regarding true first dazzle scheme. You are doing the second and final scheme - the diamond dazzle, or the first? Yes, a compass platform. The railing you see here, to which canvas was attached, doesn't seem to be in place until just before the MV in Nov. '07. In the image you posted, I see a 22-foot ribband in the middle of being hoisted it seems, so that is Olympic in front of Mauretania, the date is July 1934 and the location is Berth 108 @ the Western Docks. Really nice image. Where did you find it? Here is a photo from 1925 or '26 looking aft along the starboard side, showing you some more of this structure.
