A popular, successful and much respected liner, the Ile de France is credited by many as being the ship that first embodied Art Deco. Overshadowed somewhat by the Normandie prior to WWII, the Ile de France went on to have a long and prosperous career, garnering praise and honor as the chief rescue vessel in attendance at the sinking of the Andrea Doria off Nantucket in July of 1956. Measuring just under 4' in length (47.5") in 1:200 scale; the ship may be styled to the client's preference in her original 3-funneled configuration or as a post-refit, 2-funneled liner. Brass and diecast metal fittings. Mounted on a hardwood base with glass dust cover included. Built on a commission basis. Call or email
