Normandy was a French passenger ship of the “Compagnie Générale Transatlantique” (CGT), also known as the French Line, commissioned in 1935. At the time of its completion, it was the largest ship in the world and during its service it repeatedly carried the “Blue Ribbon”.
To this day, she is considered a milestone in passenger shipbuilding because of her eye-catching Art Deco design, her particularly generous space and the clear lines of her outer form. She is often referred to as the perfect passenger ship.
The ship, which was confiscated when the USA entered World War II, was set on fire by negligent welding in the CGT pier in Manhattan during conversion work to a troop transporter in 1942. The ship capsized at the pier and was later scrapped after very expensive salvage in 1946.
The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “Normandie”
This model is 100 % hand made and crafted with great precision.
Exotic woods, such as teak, mahogany, rosewood or mango are being used, which result in precious, decorative and exclusive models as an end product. The hull is being sanded down carefully after completion, and if required, painted with clear coating material.
Ornaments and embellishments (for example canons, bull’s-eyes, anchor, dials or wheels et cetera) are made out of brass, chrome and other high-quality metals.
The sails are either out of cloth or silk, the mast is made out of wood and the hemp rope is made out of solid lisle. Some of these ropes have special knots, which allow the ropes to be retightened at any time.
