Hi to all from Tijuana MX.

 

My name is Sergio and I just started this wonderful hobby a couple of months ago.

So far, my first build was a Titanic 1/700 Academy model, finished it in a week and I was hooked.

I got my second model, another Titanic scale 1/400 from Academy but the premium edition and I'm amazed of all the detail that comes with.

I will post pictures shortly of the advance of my build.

Good night to all.

Welcome to MSW, Sergio.   By all means, open a log in the kit area for your new Titanic.

¡Bienvenida a nuestra comunidad, Sergio! Please start a separate build log where you can share your pictures, and tell us here when you've done so. I hope you continue to enjoy this really fun hobby.

Sergio,

 

     Welcome!   :722972270:

 

     I would invite you to come to the San Diego Ship Modelers Guild meetings, but the Maritime Museum (where it is held) is closed for the duration of COVID and I suspect border crossings are clogged with reduced lanes.  Stay tuned.

I hope you do start a build log and I look forward to seeing the progress on your Titanic. I'd expect a 1:400 model to have a lot more detail than the 1:700 - It would be interesting to see how much extra.

Thanks for the photos. Looking forward to seeing your build log. 

 

When I was in Southampton UK about 11 years ago they had the whole upper floor of the Maritime museum there devoted to a Titanic display - it was the port she left from on her fatal voyage. I don't know if they'd still have the display, but the museum might be a useful source of information for your model, and perhaps could refer you to others.

 

Just out of interest, is there anything in particular that drew you to make two models of the Titanic?;)

Hi Steven

I've never worked on a scale model before, Always wanted to, but never tried.

So one day I was browsing in Hobby Lobby and saw the 1/700 scale and I thought to myself, why not give it a try.

So I started working on it and I loved it (the hobby I mean). So by the time I was done I wanted a better looking Titanic to display at my house and I thought that the 700 scale was small and the TITANIC deserved nore.

So, that is why I bought the second one with a LOT more detail and LED lighting, I will make a case for it at the home, eventually I will upload photos of it.

Once I'm done with it, I have my eye on the Black Pearl from Pirates of the Caribbean, she's a beauty.

 

Sergio

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. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
