Would love to see them.
Can you show the chassis as well?

How about an air drying modeling clay?
That's just one... there are others that may suit as well.

Maybe cost to tool up? An extra mould would be needed for separate wiper/s.
It's clearly not a technical issue, because making moulds for wipers has been possible for a long time.

S'pose they could make a generic wiper that could be adapted to all similar applications.
That could slightly reduce the cost of the body mould, by eliminating that detail.

It does seem a bit wierd, because many slot cars (mainly 1/32) have separate wipers.
And they get broken off during racing.

Yeah, the Mauretania is quite a bit different in the hull as well. So cancel that suggestion.

There is a nice looking Aquitania model on ebay at the moment.
Looks nice, but too big for me at 800mm long.
Looks like the seller got the photo's mixed up, as there are some of the Lusitania there as well.

I've got the Triang (missing masts), and have been looking a long time for a larger one without luck.
My father served in the Royal Navy on her during the war, and would love to get a better version.

If you're keen, you could also check out an Airfix kit of the RMS Mauretania.

It's also a 4 stacker, and could be converted to the Aquitania.
