So I have always wanted a nice metal model of the MS BERMUDA of Furness Bermuda Line. Unfortunately no one has made one yet. I have noticed the great similarity of the BERMUDA and the MORRO CASTLE. So I decided to convert my MC. I rebuilt her counter into a cruiser stern, extended her promenade deck to the bridge front, removed her aft docking bridge and numerous ventilators. After that, I repainted her into the Furness livery, including a mahogany bridge. Not a bad mornings work.

Reworking the stern of the MORRO CASTLE with modeling clay into a cruiser stern, and I have removed the docking bridge and many of the ventilators on the aft decks.
Repainted in Furness Bermuda livery, with grey hull, red and black stacks and brown life boats.
