Overview
 
1/600 Scale RMS Mauretania. Airfix. Built for the Cunard Line at Wallsend-on-Tyne in northeastern England, the Mauretania was launched in 1906. At an average speed of 25 knots, she was the fastest North Atlantic passenger liner for over two decades, until Germany's Bremen broke Mauretania's speed record in July 1929. With her nine decks, the Mauretania could accommodate 560 passengers in first class, 475 in second class, and 1,300 third class passengers. During World War I she served both as an armed cruiser and as a hospital ship. She made her last Atlantic crossing in September 1934 and was broken up at Rosyth, Scotland, in 1935.
