Hi Morten,

every photograph looks absolutely perfect with very fine lines and sharp bow, like the Cunard original ships. I also remember your Queen Mary shown at TRMA years ago, also perfect and all scratch, as I remember.

I just checked the books John Bowen: Miniature Merchant Ships and More Miniature Merchant Ships, Carpathia is in the second book: built by Swan Hunter, plans are stored in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, Sectional Profile and General Arrangement, but not very good quality (as John Bowen wrote, I haven't seen them).

I only want to say, if somebody is inspired to build a Cunarder from these excellent pictures, these books contain a lot of them in 1/1200, described with references to the shipyard plans. The Glasgow University Archive contains the John Brown Collection for example, with rather complete plans for the Carmania, Lusitania, Aquitania, Queen Mary, etc., most of them rigging profile 1/96, all decks 1/96, lines 1/48, shell plating or shell expansion 1/48, ventilation, etc. Not cheap, but not unreasonably expensive, I only own a set of the Aquitania, which is my favorite Cunarder, as one of Olympic's strong competitors.

Best regards,

Michael
