Liner Number 6 model 1937

Liner Number 6 set 1936 stern view

1930's front coverThis liner is a simple but attractive model from the pre-war number 6 manual. It is a model I built many times as a child partly perhaps because my dad worked on such ships. I have made very few changes wishing to keep as close as possible to the original instructions. Interestingly the illustration appears to show p/n 90 used for the four lifeboats but only two are in the set. The illustration in the manual is rather badly retouched to show other parts on the far side. The cover picture of the manual shown on the left shows just two lifeboats. A change of parts in the set after the manuals were produced perhaps? p/n 90 is not shown either on the list of parts for the model.
