Visit of a Queen


Recommended Posts

Great modelled iconic ship. Is that the one who is put as museum in Long Beach - CA-US ? How to you portover from FSX? Is he really so much smaller than the Queen Mary II as the last shot shows?

Great idea to show the two QMs side by side! :)

At first I wondered too, but the last image is certainly distorted by the fisheye effect (just as QM1 appears larger than QM2 a few images up).
That said, QM2 is really quite a hunk (QM2 310m vs QM1 269m).


By the way, I found an interesting size comparison with the Titanic:

Looks great Bernd! :)  Took a tour of her in 1990, beautiful ship.

I actually did a haunted tour of the Queen Mary back in the early 90's. I don't know if they still do it, but back then they would turn her into the Queen Scary for Halloween, and you did a haunted tour of the ship (which has a plethora of historical ghost stories from it's past). At the end of the tour, you finished in the grand ballroom where you were seated to watch a very haunting, live performance of the Phantom of the Opera. Talk about cool! Watching that performance on a really old, and historical passenger liner, and on Halloween. Great memory :)

Interesting take on sim images Bernd :) Very well done showing off the beautiful Sydney harbour.

Many thanks, Landon. I think the Queen fits right in there :)

Better in Sydney Harbor and afloat than a diver's mecca off the coast of SoCal . :blink::(

I fully agree with you, John

 

Thanks a lot, Carlos

For the porting over I use a software called MSFS Legacy Converter. I think your other questions were already answered by Frank

Thanks, Adam. I toured her twice, once in the late 1980s and once in 2001. Both times I decided to book a room on the ship, so I had more time to explore her. The old first class accomodations can be booked. Very 1930s!! The second time around I took the family along. They loved it too.

Thank you so much, Frank. Thank you also for the comparison shot with the Titanic. Very interesting!

I had heard about it, but I missed that one unfortunately. But my first stay (alone) was interesting in another sense, as I was on a guided tour that was letting us see the entire engine room. Absolutely fascinating. I don't know, whether this is still possible today. In 2001 it was off any tour offered.
