YES! Two days back, it were a lucky day for myself. My neighbor's wife invited me in to see her Christmas Tree. Upon viewing the tree, my eyes immediatly noticed a small waterline model of the S.S. UNITED STATES...I exclaimed it's "The Big U!". The neighbor said her husbasnd just found it at a garage sale for $5.00, but would not part with it. Upon the husband returning home, and my consequent sharing of my "Big U" collection, the gentleman said, "You can have it for nothing". I insisted on giving him something. He also collects diecast planes, so I did give him one of mine, a U.S.N. CORSAIR...w/ my Merry X-Mas appreciation.

The S.S.U.S. model was first purchased on board the liner during her tenure.
