Trumpeter 1/200 Titanic

Recommended Posts

For those interested here is a link with some photographs of a demo model of the forthcoming 1/200 Titanic from Trumpeter (approx 5th row of photos down) I believe it is about 1.35m in length.

Kind of upsetting in away.

Close examination of many of the details on this model shows that the Minicraft Titanic that I am building now for my wife is of course inaccurate! After drilling about 800 portholes I am relatively familiar with how the Minicraft kit is set up. This model, and the color film that follows, show that the older 1/350 kit has MANY accuracy issues that at least in my case will just have to be lived with! There is NO WAY I am going to back track at this point and alter 100s of portholes to make it right!

 

It does look that it will truly have the potential of being a magnificent model though!

So there seems to be a good amount of debate over errors in the cast of the hull.  I kind of want to see the final mold before I put the money down on this.  Also, would it be wrong to have the Revell 1:200 Research Ship that discovered the wreck modelled alongside?

I find it kind of funny that the two pictures provided for the lighting of the model show it with the superstructure placed onto the hull backwards! :wacko::D Shows real attention to scale fidelity.

Hahaha!   Exactly.  This makes me wonder if it is worth moving up from teh 1:350 benchmark kit where at least the errors and corrections are readily fixable and discussed at length already

Regardless would be a NICE mantle piece with the lighting!To many lifeboats (so I jest) the life boats need help oars,covers I sure the aftermarket world will chime in.Me I have a HK 1/32 B-25 along with some other big scale A/C I need to finish before I throw out more bucks.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal.
