When shipping companies spend millions or hundreds of millions of dollars building a new ship they often follow up with a model that’s a fraction of the size and price for the Company’s Headquarters. Such was the case after Disney built it’s first cruise ship the Disney Magic.
This model was built by one of the best in the business, Miami based Maritime Replicas. They tell us:
Maritime Replicas was honored to be commissioned to build this 20 foot long, 1:48 scale model of the DISNEY MAGIC, well before the actual ship was completed by FINCANTIERI in Italy.
The model is the centerpiece in the DISNEY CRUISE TERMINAL at Port Canaveral, and one side depicts the ship as viewed at sea, with the opposite side having the hull ‘shell’ omitted and all interim areas modelled in the finest accuracy and detail.
