The new HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier is one of the biggest ships ever built for the Royal Navy. One of the most advanced warships in the world, the new vessel forms part of the Navy’s surface fleet.
To commemorate this unique vessel in the year of its launch, Fleet Air Arm Museum wanted to create a replica carrier in the form of a unique, educational play facility for children and their families. As well as being realistic, the play carrier needed to provide additional learning opportunities linked to the museum and its exhibits.
Proludic's bespoke play manufacturing capabilities enabled the company to create play installations to represent the carrier's huge towers, as well as an F-35 fighter jet and a Hercules helicopter. Exact details such as control panels were transferred onto the play panelling using graphic game printing based on images taken from the museum.
A 'Web Adventure Package' added another dimension to the play area by creating an orienteering game, for which the museum can create educational games that are linked to the museum displays.
