New looks for Queen Victoria and Ecstasy!

Since their respective constructions, I have had nagging complaints about the appearances of both the Queen Victoria and the Ecstasy. Particularly, the funnels of both seemed to be too large, especially in the case of the Ecstasy.

Therefore, I recently undertook to rebuild portions of both ships. The Queen Victoria was first. Her funnel was reduced about 50 percent from the original size seen on her Maiden Voyage. It made an immediate difference and made her look much more scale and accurate!

The Ecstasy's funnel was ridiculously huge since she was built in 2005. Her new funnel is probably 30-40% the size of her original funnel, and the difference is again enormous!

Now the Ecstasy and Queen Victoria are REALLY ready to have their pictures taken!

Currently, I don't have any available for sale, though that may change in the coming months. I can do commissions, but unless it's a small boat, (3-4 feet long) it would probably be about $1000-$2000 complete. thanks for your interest.
