Sailing the seven seas of rhye… We’ve heard from the fans of model aeroplanes and model cars. Now we’d like to hear from those who played with model ships. Did you have your own fan club?

Ship was commissioned on 18th. March, 1959, decommissioned in 20th. April, 1978 & scrapped October 1986. Have not heard of Cunard Model ships. Then came Tamiya Model sets but somehow we didnt buy Japanese products. felicia January 10, 2019 at 12:51 pm - Reply Pity you gave the model away, SK. If not we would love to add your ship to our collection… Ipoh Remembered January 10, 2019 at 1:48 am - Reply Dear felicia … You’re a Queen fan! Anyway, these kinds of injection-moulded plastic “hobby kits” came somewhat after my time. Introduced to Malaya by Airfix, Revell, and Kleeware in the early ’50s, in Ipoh they were available at Whiteaway’s and one or two other shops which sold toys imported from the UK or the US. The required glue and optional paint, bought separately, gave off fumes that were likely quite toxic, especially to children. If I recall correctly, the instructions did warn parents to allow the application of these products in well-ventilated areas only. felicia January 10, 2019 at 12:50 pm - Reply “You’re a Queen fan!” …you caught me, Ipoh Remembered 😀 Leave A Comment Cancel reply Comment Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
