Large Hand Built Ship Model of the Rms Lusitania

About

This large, detail model of the historic RMS Lusitania was hand built in the mid-20th century. The Cunard line’s RMS Lusitania was one of the most luxurious and esteemed passenger ships in the early 1900s. Its maiden voyage was on September 7th, 1907. It completed 201 crossings successfully. When at full speed, she was deemed almost uncatchable. On its final crossing in May of 1915, the Lusitania was torpedoed by U-Boat 20. Of the 1,962 passengers aboard, 1,191 perished including 128 Americans. The US, who had tried to remain neutral during WWI, could no longer turn a blind eye to the war in Europe. The sinking of the Lusitania is often mistakenly attributed as the event that pushed the US into the First World War, when it merely provided a slippery slope for US-German relations. America would enter into the war almost exactly two years after the sinking. This model allows for the grandeur and design of the Lusitania to be remembered and preserved.
