    Hello all Titanic-modelers and -fans,

    While doing some research on the large Atlantic passenger steamers, I found this interesting Titanic forum, with a post by a Dutch member who is apparently constructing a GIGANTIC 1:100 scale card model of the 'RMS Titanic'.

    It is an extremely realistic model - it´s hull even breaks up in two, just like the ill-fated original Titanic´s hull did while it was sinking in the cold North Atlantic, ninetyfive years ago: http://www.titanic-titanic.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=573

    Some model, eh?

    My oh my!!
    She looks pretty good to me. I hope he can finish it well.

    Hey, my friend Bengt, by the way (and not to try stealing your thread here), I printed Currell's Titanic in about 150% and it seems that it will look very very good. Have you tried to print it that size?

    'RMS Titanic' Model 1:200 Scale by Ralph Currell

    Hola Gerardo,


    I have printed it in 115 %. I think I will be able to build that size - the ship will be 14 inches long instead of 9.

    You can see a bit of my model (the blue Atlantic Ocean base plate and the hull in parts) in the 'Workbench' thread it´s behind the table lamp to the right of the cutting mat.

    Regards,
    Bengt :D

    Titanic and more at 1:600 scale!

    Bengt,
    I too love the classic steamships from this era....my site has 2 photoes of the Augusta Victoria, Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, Mauratania, and Titanic reduced from the much larger kits to the 1:600 scale....the Augusta and the Kaiser were especially challenging since they each had about a million ventilation shafts...some that I used a straight pin for the center diameter dilitation!!! I enjoyed very much building these little beauties....the detail of the these two later kits still amaze me...really well engineered kits!!!...

    Large Atlantic Steamers

    Bob,

    Those are beauties! It strikes me at first that you got the colour of the funnels and decks of the Titanic right - you sometimes see funnels that are much too light or too bright yellow.
    Were these models card models to begin with or are they scratch-built?

    I take my hat off . . .

    ship kits reply...

    Bengt,
    Naw, Bengt....I do not possess skills even approaching that level....the Augusta and the Kaiser Wilhelm were Modellbaubogen Verlag /Scheur & Struver kits at 1:250 the Titanic was a 1:250 kit from Wilhelmshavener Modellbaubogan, the Mauretania was the old JSC kit at whatever scale that one was done at...but the Scheur & Struver kits are masterpieces in my humble opinion....and the 1:250 Titanic is a good kit....

    Wilhemshavener Titanic Kit 1:250

    Thanks, Bob,

    I´ll take a look at that Wilhemshavener kit. I do like the colors, especially the so called "White Star Buff" yellow-brown color of the funnels and the seemingly correct color (if perhaps a tad dark) of the pinewood decks.

    Best,
    Bengt :smile:
