CM Models CM230 Rex Italia Line 1938 1/1250
A 1/1250 scale metal model of Rex the only Italian ship to win the Blue Riband.
Rex remained in Italy during WW2 and was left in her civilian colours and not used for trooping. Hovever, she was seen to be raising steam, possibly to be used as a blockship and a squadron of rocket firing Beaufighters soon had her blazing end to end and sinking. A sad end to a magnificent ship.
