What a fascinating photograph! The model is of the original Norddeutscher Lloyd "Bremen" of 1928, the bigger "Bremen" is the same company's second ship of the name, rebuilt in 1958 from the French Line's "Pasteur" of 1939.

As I recall Mike, there was a man inside the model, as I understand it was over 20' long(I could be very wrong about that)--memory and old age don't meet quite so often.

Some corrections:
The big BREMEN ex PASTEUR was the fifth ship of that name owned by Norddeutscher Lloyd, while the modelled ship of 1928 was the fourth.
The model was (is??) more than 12 m long and could carry 6 persons. With two diesel engines it developed a speed of 15 knots.
Very probably the picture was taken 12.06.62, the date when the two ships met the first time.

Thanks for the corrections about the name numbers kgvm, I obviously didn't delve back far enough into North German Lloyd's history! Your details of the model make it even more fascinating, you say the photo is very probably dated 12.06.62, so was it in Germany that the ships met and is the model German also?

Yes, it's a model made by two German people. They met the BREMEN off Bremerhaven and both ships then went to Bremerhaven, where the picture was taken.
