A Titanic Model



RMS Titanic

I just returned from viewing this model of the Titanic and had to post the link to he modeler's site with description and photos. This ship is the official builder’s model of Titanic and was created in cooperation with Harland & Wolff, the builders of the ship Titanic. Seven years in the making, this model has uncompromising detail, is 18’ long, weighs 1,500 lbs., and is a masterpiece of engineering artistry. This builder’s model is the most accurate model of Titanic ever built and offers an up close look at how the ship really looked back in 1912. Anyone interested in modeling or the Titanic will want to check it out.

Be sure to look at the construction photos.

I wish there had been more items in the photos to give it some scale. It's hard to wrap my head around its size.

Good thought, maybe include the iceberg?

It took two men two years to put the 3,376,000 rivets in their exact spots, working 12 hours a day, six days a week.
