  1. I have been following a youtube tutorial on building the wreck in 1/350 scale, I will use the Revell kit I have in my stash to build the same. In addition to the tutorial, I will use these books. The bow section is only 470 feet of the 882 foot long Titanic, in 1/570 scale that is under 10 inches! So far, I cut the hull at 470 scale feet and started the forecastle, the boat deck and A deck. I did get the Tom's Modelworks photo etch set for the cranes and railings.
  2. This is my first complete build of a model in about 40 years. I have looked at it as a learning process. There are many inaccuracies and novice errors but it has taught me a lot. Once I found that I enjoyed doing this I saw this as a way to work on improving my skills. I realize Titanic models are everywhere but it was the easiest to purchase for a first attempt, and I am an ocean liner fan. I used a Scaledecks wood deck, various photo etch sets, and brass masts from Master Model. I'm not quite sure if I am posting this in the correct spot as this is my first post. I just recently completed th
  3. Hi All, Over the past few days, I have been dabbling with the Academy Titanic. This is the first plastic model that I have attempted in many years. (The Dark Side?) The kit comes with PE and Wooden Deck. This is also my first PE exposure. I have started on the Fore and Aft Decks, painting what is required and removing plastic, not required for the Wooden Decks. I have done the same for all three Main Decks Planking applied. (A note: Planking is not Laser Cut, just an outline, so separate components with a sharp blade....) Tried my h
  4. Well I'm back from vacation, and it's time to dig into the Titanic, which I've had in my sights since I started modeling a couple of years ago. Here's the "What's In the Box" post: Manual with picture books plus lots of plan sheets A large wall poster of the entire model The stuff: plywood laser cut sheets, parts, wood strip, etc. Just on the surface, this looks like it's going to be a different kind of build from the Amati ships or other boats I've built. Because there isn't a complete log that I can find, I'll try to post frequently as I
  5. Good morning. It's been quite some time since I posted on here. I have taken a long break from ship builds, focussing mainly on cars/bikes. However my partner wanted a Titanic built, and has been nagging me for about 2 years now. So I snagged Academy's 1/400 Premium Limited Edition, c/w PE, wooden deck and lighting. If you can call it lighting. It's just 4 LED strips, but it does come with a nifty touch sensitive switch, and the contacts between LED's are conductive so I can, and plan on, adding to them. Came in a nice double sleeved box: The first thing I wanted t
  6. For years now, I have been thinking about building R.M.S. Titanic. Just like many other people, I have always had a keen interest in her history. By moving through this build, I am looking forward to gaining even more information about this amazing piece of machinery and how she helped shape our history going forward. Just recently, the opportunity came upon me to do so. Last Sunday I woke up made, my coffee and breakfast sat down in the living room and proceeded to figure out what I was going to do for the day. While sitting there I received a message from a colleague of mi
  7. Hi Model ship world members. Here are some pictures of my 1/700 Titanic Model Kit. This is an ACADEMY model Kit MCP 1/700 scale and My first build. Ever since I was 6 years old (32 years ago) I've always loved the history behind the Titanic. I remember being super exited on 1985 when it was discovered and I waited eagerly for the National geographic film to come out. I even went to several book stores looking for the printed issue and my dad couldn't understand the fascination with the ship, but he went along with it. I even bought (now lost 😪) reprints of the n
  8. Decided to get back into wood after a side venture in plastic. My next wood kit is the Titanic Lifeboat by Artesania Latina in 1:35 scale. Purchased the kit through Tower Hobbies in Chicago when I heard that AL was in bankruptcy. Had this kit on my wish list for some time. Well here's the obligatory box photos. Interestingly the entire box was shrink wrapped in plastic, and the contents were likewise shrink wrapped in plastic over a large piece of cardboard. In addition each of the bundles were also shrink wrapped. Don't know if this is to prevent moisture; or sticky fingers
  9. Greetings - this is not a build log per se but the website for the completed model, which has over 12 pages of build photos and explanations of what was done and how. Plus, of course, finished model photos. www.titanicmodel.net Regards Art Braunschweiger Forum administrator, please move this to the appropriate location if it doesn't belong here.
  10. This was a last minute choice in what will be 2 ships. This is the 1/400 Academy Titanic kit. I purchased laser cut wood decks, PE Deck Chairs, PE Hand Rails.
  11. Greetings Everyone, Being very much into genealogy, I was going through the hundreds of personal letters from the children of my 2nd great-grandparents and I decided to take a closer look at an old letter that was written on ships stationary. I always knew about this letter, however, with the other endless genealogy research projects, I just never got around to take a closer inspection of this particular letter. The letter is addressed to my great aunt, May Ivory, from her future sister-in-law, Constance Randall, and was dated June 14, 1910, with an envelope postmarked "REC'
  12. I am currently buidling the TITANIC, Mantua scale 1:200. This model will be completed with PE-parts, such as windows, railings, ladders and more little stuff. Much information comes from the Titanic Research and Modelling Association,the book " RMS Titanic, a modelmaker's manual" by Peter Davies-Garner and CAD-drawings by Robert Hahn. Here some pictures of what has been done so far : fixing the frames and start with planking the hull : funnels with the rivet-pattern : lifeboats with PE-davits Eric
  13. I received this kit for Christmas from my admiral......she was so bummed out, that it wasn't the Billing's Titanic. I have never built an academy kit before......I was impressed with how the kit looks. there is quite a bit of detail to it, and I really like the size......the hull is 26 1/2 inches long. I have to be brief....I am to grill supper. it has been an off the wall busy day! I will start with an overall view of the parts......there are so many small parts.......I really have been away from plastic for quite a while. I had to do this on the dining room table, so the
  14. I received this as a Christmas gift last year and recently decided to give it a shot. The model comes packaged in a 6"x6" box and works up into a 5 1/2" model stem to stern. The materials consist of two steel sheets with all parts attached via sprues. Construction is of the "insert tab a in slot b" type. The tabs can be folded over or twisted 90 degrees to lock the parts together. Steps are laid out in a series of diagrams - no text here. Tools used for construction - a wire cutter to cut parts loose (some have three attachment points and I cut one before twisting the par
  15. Hey guys I'm greg from Gold Coast Australia I also have another build log going and that's for the BLACK PEARL from hachette I bought this kit off a lady in Perth Australia who's husband had sadly past away a few years ago and she had collected all 100 issues every week for him but he was unable to start/ complete it it's copy righted 2001 so it's a good 13 years old all the issues are unopened except for issue 1 I am currently up to issue 8 and was wondering if anyone has done this partworks before if you have please feel free to help me with any tips or tricks as this TITANIC and the BLACK
  16. I started building this ship of dreams and hope about 2-3 years ago. I ran into to early problems with the build and therefore tucked it away. Now I have decided to give it another try, since I am fascinated by this ship and its story like so many others. I'll post some pictures of the build until today and will try to update the log as I go. Tips and advice are welcome!
  17. First build of a model in wood. Just over 2 weeks into build. I put very thin line of wood glue on edge of each hull plank before I attached it to hull. It makes structure stronger and better for sanding after I find, cause there is no individual movement of planks in and out when sanding, so result is smoother finish I think anyhow as pics of stern show that I have sanded. Also I painted paper cut out of windows, doors etc in a semi clear varnish to prevent fading of them over years due to sunlight. Anyone else who has any tips greatly appreciated More brains the better. It never hurts to li
  18. Hi all thought i would post a build log of my first plastic ship kit in years. this is how the kit came from The Model Dockyard After opening the box this is what i got and withe the sleeve removed the box has a real feel of quality about it. So thats what you get lets get started. i have decided to light her up so first job is to drill out all those port holes all 806 of them. i know you cant see it from the photos but trust me all 806 are drilled out This is showing the decks after the bit h
  19. Right this is my first time at doing a build log and hopefully all will go well I have decided to try my hand at making the Titanic as I have a very keen interest in the real Titanic and is a bit different to the Mississippi Paddle Steamer I have almost completed, this will be the third ship I have built so hopefully I will have enough skill to complete quite a complex model. The kit will be completed as per the instructions with no modifications on my part, having read a bit on models of the Titanic I believe the finished shape of the hull may be slightly out but I am not too bother
  20. Just bought this off a chap who had this up in his loft for the past 4 years.He admitted that model-making wasn't for him! It's the "Build the Titanic"magazine collection. Nearly complete collection,except for issues 93-100.I hope I can get hold of them over the coming months. Most of the planks are falling off or broken.Don't know what glue he used but it didn't work very well! Have stripped off the one side,and am just waiting for my order of new ones. Can't strip the other side off yet,as I have to make a template off it to drill the portholes,etc. Wish me luck!!
  21. Well, here goes with a repost of my Titanic build. It will take a few posts to catch up but I will do my best. The Mantua kit comes in 5 parts including the RC part. I am building this to include the RC part but it will mainly be a static model, hence posting in this forum. I started the model in early December 2012 and have been surprised at how fast I have progressed - too much time building and not enough time for the house chores! The kit is very complete and I have not really had any problems yet. The hull is a standard 'double plank on frame' construct
