  1. See what yu can do when you are challenged? The detail is much better and I like the Davits. It adds a lot to a model when those items are incorporated. Bravo!:thumb: I like the display as well. Where did you get the water?

    From rockets to this finely detailed work of art is a quantum leap in your modeling expertise, Peter!:thumb:

    I wish you the best of the holidays this year.

    Hi there Terry. Yes you are right it's from one extreme to another and i really enjoyed the build of this remarkable ship - A rocket it isn't but a beautiful piece of craftsmanship made by people who had real trades and were experts in all their fields {apart for the badly designed bulkheads which led to her sinking so quickly}. I am proud that my wife's Great Grandfather was a part of the ships high class carpentry. I wish you a very Merry Christmas too and hope the new year fares better than this one for all of us. Regards. Pete. :mrgreen:

    Kudos and Fireball

    Hey Pete! Great looking build! You've set a high standard for the rest of us that want to build this model. I haven't gotten to that fireball yet, but I found some good silver paper and am ready to go. I just keep getting more "gotta build that too" kits. Right now I'm working on a ship I downloaded a long time (as in years) ago, just for a change of pace. I don't even know what it is - some kind of russian warship. It's coming along nicely.

    Congrats on a job well done.

  10. Hey Pete, I would like to have the files if you don't mind. I have a 4' version I built 28 years ago and that would make it look sweet. I would like both the back and the water.


    My e-mail is the same as my handle

    Hi there everyone. Just to let you know that i will be posting you a treat very soon... I will be getting my wifes Great Grandfathers saw as used by him on the Titanic, also a Locket with a photo of himself and his wife.

    Hi Peter,

    Nice work on the Titanic! It just gets better all the time. I think it is really cool that your wife's past family worked on this ship. I like the iceberg in your background too! Nice job.
