Yesterday they had a QE in the window. As it was the only one they had I weakened and bought it.
It comes inside a sturdy plastic see through case with a cardboard wrapper. As it can be seen clearly inside this mine will stay in the box as a paperweight, it is pretty heavy!
Having no aptitude for model making it will not join my mixed collection of 1/1200 and 1/1250 ships which is a shame but like the BOAC Concorde which Corgi made in 1969 it is a nice stand-alone piece.
