1:400 Scale JSC Titanic, Full Hull Scratchbuild
Congratulations on a fantastic RMS Titanic model - you must be very proud of this wonderful achievement. The railings and ladders, as well as the complete rigging, are a marvel to behold. Expert modeling work at this small scale!
Your idea to transform the waterline JSC Titanic 1:400 scale model into a full hull model was an ingenious one, as the waterline model is a very good model to begin with (one of the few with true Titanic colors).
Thanks for sharing this interesting thread and beautiful close-up photos. This is indeed an inspiration.
All the best from Stockholm,
Again I thank you all for your comments, especially want to thank you for seeing the picture on the homepage of the forum, has been a big surprise for me. Thank you very much
Excellent build :thumb:
Just incredible. You should be proud - and show it off! Thanks too for all the good pics, it'll help a lot.
A very well deserved Pic of the Week... Congrats and well done.
Yes indeed excellent build. You are truly a "Master Modeler". Having studied the Titanic for many years I can say it is very nicely done. Just one bit of trivia, the standing rigging was blacked with tar to protect them from the sea air and moisture in general. The old Hemp rope would tend to slacken at night and then dry out in the day. So by coating it with tar it remaind tigh at all times. Later when steel rope was used it protected the steel from rusting. So all the stays on the funnels should be black as well as those holding the masts. Most would never notice but not much gets past us old salts Other than that It looks great, a fine piece of work.
Looks really nice. Well done on POTW.
