#375, "RMS Aquitania semi-kit (1:144 and 1:350)"

In the modelling community as in real life, this magnificent vessel is often overshadowed by her more famous rivals. But now, I'm proud to announce that for the first time ever, Aquitania is available for purchase in model kit form.

Aquitania is the first in a range of planned releases of many well-known and well-loved ships, with giants such as Cunard's Campania/Lucania and Caronia/Carmania and White Star's Oceanic II and the Big Four to follow in the coming months. Our kits are based meticulously on the original builder's drawings for a one hundred percent accurate result, and the great advantage of our computer aided design process allows the pieces to be laser-cut to whatever scale the customer wishes.

Please note - this is a semi-kit. While packs that will provide the modeller with decks, superstructure and deckhouses are in development, much scratchbuilding and skill will still be required to give a complete model of Aquitania.

Please do not hesitate to contact me via PM, at http://www.facebook.com/modelreplication or at info@modelreplication.com for more information.

Update - the first batch of 1:350 hulls are scheduled to be cut by the end of the week. There's also this...

The first of their kind in the world, these CAD drawings of Cunard's Aquitania follow in the footsteps of J. Kent Layton's RMS Lusitania and Robert Hahn's RMS Titanic plans. Based on original shipbuilder's drawings housed in the Merseyside Maritime Museum, Liverpool, every detail is precisely replicated in this exquisite collection, which may be used as an aid in building our RMS Aquitania semi-kits, displayed on your wall or simply perused for your enjoyment.









AVAILABLE NOW - unannotated starboard profile, great for display or casual enjoyment
COMING SOON - complete builder's set, including rigging plan, shell plate expansion, visible decks and deckhouse details
COMING SOON - general arrangement plans of every passenger deck

Contact me at info@modelreplication.com for more details!

Hello,
I plan to make a 1/350 Aquitania, and I would like to know where these semi-kits would be purchased.
Will you be making a 1/350 (or even 1/570) semi-kit of Majestic (ex Bismarck) or Berengaria (Ex Imperator)? I am fully aware of the other semi-kits you are building as well, so if not, then it is fully understandable.

Hi Colin,

E-mail me at info-at-modelreplication.com if you're still interested in an Aquitania kit. I did plan on doing both the ships you mentioned as well, but designing and producing these kits is a huge investment and I don't know if it'd be worthwhile. If I were to do them as one-offs it'd likely have to cost a fair bit more. But again, send me an e-mail if you'd like to discuss it further.

Are there pictures of the ship's frames from the front? I need the frames, but cannot find them anywhere else on the internet.
