Hi Chris,

I am having trouble posting at the moment. The FDR model is a large model of the Mauretania presented to Franklin Roosevelt by Bob Blake, the American head of Cunard. Roosevelt donated the model, along with his personal collection of over 100 photographs, a letter protesting her demise, and a brass lamp said to be from her "main lobby" to the Smithsonian Institution on July 2, 1932 while Mauretania was on her last voyage to the breakers yards at Rosyth. The model, noted for its thick and crudely applied white cruise repainting and green hull, could be seen aboard the Queen Mary for many years. It was removed to the Smithsonian Institution where it was restored and is now on display.

Here is a link to a profile view that shows the platform in question, just out of focus I believe, between the two skylights running along the center-line above the bridge on the FDR model:

Best wishes,
Eric
