Okay. I admit it, I'm hooked on doing 1:1 stuff. Well, considering that the 100th centennial of the sinking of the Titanic is right around the corner, I obviously have to do something for it (hell, I'm even breaking my usual schedule between ponies and regular paper modeling). I had actually started planning this for about a year now. I'd considered many things, from the ship's reciprocating engines to lifeboat no.6. I didn't want to do the Titanic herself, because a) I'm sure a lot of other people might be doing that, and mostly b) really, who can beat Ralph Currell's Titanic? So, after some careful thinking, I decided on doing the lifevest. It wasn't too specific or mundane, nor would it be that detached from the accident itself, not just related to the ship. so, on to the pics: a sketch of the lifevest that I drew for personal reference: pages one and two of parts: More pics to come as I draw up more parts.
