I am not into ocean liners but I have always wanted to build a 1/350 scale model of the SS United States. Has there ever a model of this great ship? She may not have been one of the biggest ocean liners but she was the fastest. To this day she holds the record for crossing the Atlantic faster from New York to England then any other ocean liner. She went into service in the early 50,s and was taken out of service in the mid 60,s. She was built with the help from the US navy because the navy wanted to use her as a military transport. She was never put up for sale because alot of the light weight materials that was used to build her is still considered top secret. Last time I heard she was anchered in Boston harbour.
