        Has anyone bought this model, or is there anyone with more images of the actual display?

        Any experiences dealing with this company?

          Another "France" Model on Ebay, Scale 1:50 (!!!!!) - over 6 m long.

          here

          And: I have seen this model in action! Its origin is a leisure-park called "Minidomm", which was located near my residence in the 60th of the last millenium....

          Minidomm included a replica of the Bremerhaven-harbour with lots of ship-models. For further Information just google for "Minidomm". Unfortunately, this park was closed due to economical reason in 1992. I knew, that a lot of the building-models had been sold to japan (where else????), but there were no informations available for the ship-models. When I visited the now devasted area in 1997, there was still the 6m-hull of a tanker left.

          If you look through the photo-gallery of this auction, you can see parts of the stock of the seller - he must have bought nearly the complete fleet of the park.

          In the attached youtube-clip you find at 2.31 a sequence with the USS United States in the foreground, France and, I wonder, Oriana in the background.

          By the way: The models had no own propulsion-systems, they where traced via tracks on the ground of the basins, but they were floated.

              Not sure if this has been shared in the past, but it's doesn't hurt seeing it again I guess:

              http://www.pbase.com/maritimmodellkl..._norway&page=1

              This is a model of the Norway, and images of the building (totally 21 pages to look at)... text is in Norwegian but images are universal!

                  That looks great so far - 1:200 is an amazing scale to work with!

                  I wish I had the same level of patience and knowledge to do something like this myself... I have none of those qualities.
