      SS Norway model

      March 14, 2009

      HI!
      I just last week bid and won the waterline model of the SSNorway on ebay. I was actually the only bidder too. Some of you may have seen it while surfing on ebay. It is a model of her from the late 90s and after. It is beautiful and cant wait to receive it. It will be a great addition to my France/Norway collection and my first model I have of her as the Norway. I have also purchased in recent months the conversion DVD from France to Norway which is in German, but the visual footage alone of the France/Norway is well worth having this Dvd. AS it turns out and I didnt know it until after the sale on ebay, but I had met this seller back in oct on the final Westbound crossing on QE2. A small world isnt it? I tell you ebay sure is addicting. Since the Norway is gone now I have noticed how high priced some of these items are now as the value as gone up.

          SS NORWAY hull!

          You might want to check this one out. Its her actual hull, more specifically her name on the hull from the stern on ebay right now. Really belongs in a museum, I mean who would want this in there house,its so big at almost 7 meters in length!

          There is also someone claiming to have portholes from the ship but they don't look legit. Here is the link or just type in ss norway.

            How sad is that?
            I was wondering what happened to the name plates that were cut out. If you read this guy says he's got all four of them, and this is the first to be auctioned.
            $10.000 for just one of the stern names, how wonder how much the one's from the bow will start at?

            You are so right Captain RJ, these really should be in museums. At least one in a French maritime museum, and another in a Norwegian maritime museum.

            I cannot believe it, something so important as this ending up on e Bay. It's an insult to the grand lady.

              When I had seen this on Ebay..I thought this is just horrible..it doesn't belong there. And nobody is making a bid for it. Good, they don't deserve the money for it.

              Nearly had our fourth cruise, it was set for November 7, 2003...
              the boiler room disaster of May 4, 2003 took her out of service.
              We ended up on the NORWEGIAN WIND, not the same as the SS NORWAY

                Exactly my sentiments as well: as the ship, it's name and legacy hasn't been ashamed enough by now, then this also in addition... everything that has come from this ship, and many of those that have dealt with her after her disastrous end, seems to have absolutely no respect for her grandness.

                    I think the reason it was withdrawn was because they asked too high a price to begin with.

                      Your right, for whatever reason the auction ended early. I understand that if the listing gets a lot of hits, ebay removes the listing.
                      We have here the builders plate something that we all heard was taken off when she was in Germany. Could be a knock off but it looks legit. Again a outrageous price is asked.

                        Did you notice that for both of these sales the e Bay account was brand new, and that both times the seller was in Norway? I'm thinking this might be the same person opening up new accounts for each item.

                        Something is certainly not right. Why did these items not surface at proper auction houses? I mean, the builders plate from one of the most famous ocean liners of all time, only being sold on e Bay? It should have been the top attraction at the Paris auctions. Something is definitely not right here.

                          Yes I agree. Notice the pictures are not in high resolution. The user name being new is indeed a dead give away. And yes this would also should have been sold in Paris or NY but also would have fetched a pretty penny.

                            What they could have done is hand them over to an auction house to sell the items for them.

                              So this is where that builders plate ended up... remember, we discussed this exact item back on our old forum in great lengths... only to find that it had been removed from the ship, and was "lost".
