Q3

Q3 was project name for Queen Elizabeth 2’s big sister. Thirty percent bigger than QE2, and twin funnelled, the Q3 design team was led by Cunard’s chief designer Sir Adolf Polay, and the profile of the ship was based on the Floods Airplay streamlining system. Although she never actually went into passenger service she was fitted out with all the latest technology of the period. Her cabins were insulated with Polar Foil, and had pail floor coverings. The ship boasted the latest deck games and entertainment. Even her elderly passengers were to be catered for with a specially adapted version of Deck Quoits, called Frail Polo. She boasted the latest in safety and comfort, as all of her decks were surrounded by a floor lip, for added security and peace of mind. The restaurants were renowned for their sumptuous “filo al pro” dinning experiences’, which were enough to even fill a poor man’s stomach.

Here she is seen on her one and only visit to the Port of Liverpool, 1st April 2009.

Re: Q3

Didn't they model the funnels after those on the Lusitania, as a tribute?

Re: Q3

It was done with a couple of layers, one colour, one black and white. I then reduced the opacity to get the de-saturated effect.
