Greetings all, Just did a QE2 voyage and stopped off at the QM1 to see Father Pirrones
Normandie Model on display on board with his Titanic and Lusitania. IT appears he has added much more detail to them Especially on the Normandie such as cargo,cars, people and in the Bow section you will see a hole in the bulkhead which show the Crews Mess. The photos do not do the model justice when taken through glass but it was the best I could do and I hope you like them. If you get out to CA you should really take the time to visit this display. Now to upload 22 pictures the way Mike Standard suggested. Hope it works. Note last photo is the Maiden Voyage Coin given to me many years ago by Rene Bouvard Director Publicite CGT so thought it best to put it here thanks to Father Pirrone Th Th Th Th Thats All Folks
Cheers All Jon

CQD or whatec=ver. Need some help form someone out there. I got one of those 32 inch Normandie Models and want to upgrade it as much as possible. What I desperately need is a description and photo or plans of the fore deck and how the Turtle Back was constructed. I have many photos but none show an overhead view of thr foredeck that are any help. Would deeply appreciate any assistance. Thanks Jon

Wonderful photos, Jon! Thanks so much for posting them, it's a real treat to see all the detail.

As for your model question, I'll leave that to someone with actual competence to answer.
Thanks!

I am researching the work done by the French designer Jean Pascaud for Normandie. I think he designed the dining room for the luxury apartments, Deauville and Trouville, or other ones that have private dining rooms.
I was wondering if these apartments are shown in the model?
How can I contact Father Pirrones?
