Very impressive conversion. As I am not very knowledgeable regarding liners, did Morro Castle and MS Bermuda have a common builder that enabled you to see the possibilities for the conversion?
: 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.
: BERMUDA compared to MORRO CASTLE
: MORRO CASTLE, AL-161
: 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.
