David, I took these photos just last November in a car museum in Dromana (near Melbourne), they had a separate section on ships and planes.
I think this model is just over 3 metres and also have a look at the other photo, Queen Mary, also posted today.
You can actually see both ships on both photos.

I found a nice car for you too and it would really suit you....you have to try and get it roadworthy in Christchurch though.
I picture you in the car on a one lane bridge....sunnies, big hat and you can pick up many hitch hikers.......superb.

Pity David, we could have it resprayed in your favourite colour.

I must apologise to the administrator as I have "sinned"
This must be the first time a photo of a car was posted on a maritime site.
It won't happen again.

Southampton civic chiefs talking about making a huge memorial for the centenary of the Titanic, Knowing them that will be about as far as it gets.

You are lucky we are (supposedly) getting a "see through" Titanic. Well they call it a light sculpture depicting the outline of the great ship. As we used to say in Harland and Wolff "Words fail me, see sketch"
