"Hamleys News" No.39, June 1936, Queen Mary. This is part of a Hamleys News advert in Meccano Magazine. The advert talks about an (unnamed) sectional model of the Queen Mary, we think it's got to be the Chad Valley one – it seems unlikely that another company would have made one)
" Now you can have a private interior view of the Queen Mary, the world's greatest liner, with the aid of our new Sectional Model. The boat comes apaprt deck by dek, and a chart indicates the important features. "
