Finally, six days ago my 1/144 Titanic hull arrived in the mail. It's now been six days continuous work, but today the hull was primed. I have added some details such as new doors, grills, rudder ring, mooring details, rings around the anchor hawse pipes, anchors and such. All sidelights and windows are drilled and cut out. I did notice that I need some more sanding around the propeller wings though. When that is done I can apply the colors and start adding some decks.

Wow! Only six days and you have got so much accomplished. Every time I see pictures of that hull it always looks so good.
Don't forget to post a lot of updates; I`m interested to see how you build your 1:144. I`m sure I will learn a lot.

Morten,
Hello,

It is always interesting looking at your photos when you show them. On several occasions I have admired your work but never had the chance to comment.

I have a question for you. I don't know a lot about all the precise details of the Titanic but I am curious about one of your photos. On the photo showing three rectangular openings aft of the bilge keel, (two with some sort of screen and one open) what are these openings for. I don't think I have ever seen these on the Titanic before or any other ship and I am curious as to what they are for?

I have seen intakes on ships before but those look very substantial compared to what I have seen and I wondering about them.

Thank you and regards,
Ron

It's interesting, but I have one question, what about the remaining parts that's not provided on the "1/144 Semi-Kit Model Page"?

I guess itís time for a small update.

The hull is now painted. The yellow stripe is on, but decals are still remaining. Does anyone know where to get these? They can wait anyway. After some weeks wondering what to do with the decks, my decision did today fall on planking all decks with individual planks. When planked and then sanded the decks look quite realistic, and I can avoid all the grain in the veneer. So far I have almost done the forward well deck, but now I am way too tired of planking to finish it today. Tomorrow I have a day off, so I hope to have the forecastle planked as well. Itís probably the most boring job ever, but I think itís worth it. In the photo below it looks darker than in real life, but I will take some new photos when I have it done.

Ron Ė the largest opening s you see are the outlets for the condensers. From memory, the other ones are intakes for the boilers and such. Anyone please correct me if I am wrong.

With a ruler and a x-acto knife. Pionts for the ruler to follow were set on each side of the veneer. The strakes are cut to 1 mm. It's too hard to get it any smaller.

Morten,

I, too, have often admired your work. I am always amazed by the level of workmanship that you display. I'm looking forward to watching the updates on this 1/144 model. Is this the one that the museum ordered from you?

Thanks.

Regards,

Kyle Mesker

Yes, this model is being built on comission. It's going to Germany, and it was talk about that it will be displayed somewhere in Italy later as well.

Morten,I always check out any post of your amazing work,I really look forward to seeing your progress,would you mind telling me where you got the wood material for the decking,also where would you recommend to get the different size drill bits for drilling the hull? I know one has to drill many different size holes. Are you going to scratch build many of the smaller parts like cranes and vents.I have been experimenting with the mold making kit from bare-metal and will be making my own cranes,cowl vents & motors but the probably the most hard will be making the crane jibs for my 1/144.Thanks for your time. Kevin

Kevin -

Drill bits is avaliable at any hardware store... I do not know about the venner, but my veneer is from a local workshop that makes interior. I don't know where one can get this elsewhere.

Cranes and vents comes from the resin sets from Peter Garner and Daniel Reed. I do not hav the time to build the vents myself.

That model is looking like a miniature of Master Peter Davies-Garner's Model. It is looking good and keep up the good work. BTW last July 4th my Revell Model that I have started a couple of years ago has got it's propellers and masts and the ladder like parts that run up to the near tops of the masts on it.

Ice is great for drinks but not for ships to run over or for us to step on. Please check out my home site! The BTRA! check my profile for it.

Morten,Thanks for your quick response and helpful info,yes i don't know about venner either, I don't really have the time either to make each of the vents but I was thinking about like making a master & mold of each type of vent,motors and stands,making masters of the parts where there is more than a few so I can make duplicates from the molds for my 1/144 Titanic if not seeing what's still available and maybe down the road I'll make a Britannic and Olypic. I really enjoy studying everything about different parts of Titanic.Look forward to more of your post on the progress of your excellent model.Thanks,Kevin

I think it is time for an update again.

As you can see, the forward well deck and the forecastle are added, and I have started some detailing in that area. I get tired of cutting and gluing planks, so it is nice to have some other things to do as well. The hard work with the deck does pay off, though. The effect is really good. Tomorrow I hope to have the aft well deck planked so I can get started with the poop deck and the enclosed 2nd class promenade. The breakwaters and the forward end of B-deck are done, but still drying after the paintjob.

Just magnificent! Can you perhaps share how you made the doors on the well deck bulk head facing the well deck? I would also like to know the thickness of the veneer you are using (by the way, you are cutting it 1 mm wide but how long are you cutting them?) Also what is the process you used to make the well deck to B deck bulkhead ( I love the detail on the railing and portholes )

That is enough questions for now I will pester you later for more details.

Thomas -

Thank you. The doors at the forward well deck are parts from the resin set from Peter Davies Garner. I don't think that set is avaliable any more. The veneer is 0.6 mm thick, as used for cabinetmaking. Instead of cutting eac individual plank, I let them run over the entire deck. Each plank would probably look more realistic if I managed to get it right, but if one piece is glued wrong or something like that it ywould be a pain. I tried on a small sample... The bulkhead is as simple as you can get it. One 0.5 mm plate as a base. Then a 0.1 mm piece is laid on top of it. The porthoes are drilled out, and the PE portholes are glued in place. The bulkhead is then done... The other details you see are 1/600 Titanic railing cutted down and glued in place. 10 Pieces in total with the PE parts... Not hard at all.

Regards,

- Morten

Thanks for the info, I am going to use it in my model. I have Peter's PE and Resin parts coming soon Now I just need to save up to get the Hull.

Can you post a macro shot of the well deck and the forecastle? I would like to see more detail on the planking and parts. Thanks in advance.

More questions.....

What type of glue are you using to adhere the wood veneer to the plastic?

And..

What plans are you using to make yours? R Hahns or Peters from the book? Or, perhaps some other plans?

Inquiring minds need to know

The model is about six feet... I am not used to measure in feet and inches. Divide Titanic's length by 144.

"What type of glue are you using to adhere the wood veneer to the plastic?"

Usual super glue. The type that sets in a few seconds.

"What plans are you using to make yours? R Hahns or Peters from the book? Or, perhaps some other plans?"

I do not know if it would be possible to do this without Hahn's plans... I do also use Peter's book witch has been a tool for me since it was printed. I also use Bruce's plans. Those are great. Since some interior will be added to the model, Bruce's plans are a must have.

I'll try to have some photos ready later tonight or tomorrow.

Regards,

- Morten

Since the last update the aft well deck and the poop has been added. As you can see, the bulkheads have also been added, and by the moment I am detailing the poop and the 2nd class promenade so I can lay the aft end of B-deck. My PE benches arrived today, witch I have been waiting for. I can then get the promenade finished and locked. The decks for the 1st class private promenade and entrances have also been planked and tiled, and the port one has been added.

Yes, Titanic had very beautiful lines for such a huge ship. Definitely not what you would call a "Fat Lady", slim lines, uncluttered deck (too bad about the life boat ) A true luxury liner, even by today's standards.

But I digress....

Morten, looking forward to more pics, she is coming along great. I am excited to get working on mine (space and time permitting) this winter, but will be looking to yours for guidance.

Again, nice job.

Morten,
I am so impressed with the quality and speed you have applied to this model. With my schedule and career choice. My own Titanic model is at the same basic point as yours, but after 5 years of construction. Great Job, Nice Work !!!!!!!

Best

Much the same that I feel now when actually building it! Afraid to make a complete mess out of it since I have not done this before. But I see now that it is comming along nicely. More pics will be posted during the weekend. The aft end of B-deck is added, and some of the bulkheads are realy for fitting. The first class entrance and the private promenades are taking shape as well.

Hi,
Excellent work's Morten! you're really a good modeler with attention to detail.
Do you set the steam valve on your model as the TRMA has discovered?

Thank you again for your pics.

Best TRMA....

Kind Regards.

William -

I did not build the anchors myself. I bought them through eBay. There was 15 in a set, so I have anchors for a while.

Cyril -

The plan is to place them as the TRMA have discovered. I will add them later on. By the moment I am working to get as much bulkheads and decks added as pollsible. Smaller details will be added later.

- Morten

Hi Morten,

Ok, it would be a shame with a model that also managed the steam valves aren't well area.
Look forward to watching advantage of pics !

Best TRMA....

Kind Regards.

Sorry, I haven't had time for writing and posting photos due to school and such. I'll post some as soon as I come home in a few days.

I am now finishing the B-deck, and I have started the forward end of A-deck.

CD - Yes, this is the 1/144 "kit".

Thomas - I don't have the anchors or the plans in front of me by the moment and I do not remember the size. But I can say that they fit the plans perfect. I found them through eBay.

Regards,

- Morten

Here are some new photos for you. Iím sorry for the quality and light, but the camera is broken and I could not use the function that I would like to use. So the photos appear much darker than the real thing. The windows are not as dark as in the photos.

Anyway, the B-deck is taking shape, and there are not much left before I can add the A-deck. The forward end of A-deck is being made by the moment, and some planking is laid. I am now waiting for more PE-parts, so much will be on hold for a week or two. I will have to work on other parts then, like the forecastle, poop and such.







- Morten

I will try to have an update either today or tomorrow. I just want to have the A-deck foyer in a better look than now...

I guess it is time for a new update now. Due to exams at school I have not progressed as much as I have wanted to the last weeks. I am in my first year at school to become a ships officer, so I will not have the time for modelling the next few weeks. But at least the A deck is taking some shape. Two thirds have been attached to the hull, and the aft section is currently being planked. I have also started the GSC foyer. The stair can be seen lying for drying at the deck. Some furniture has to be made. So, over Christmas I hope to have at least the main bulkheads at the A deck up.

Morten,

If you get a chance, could you post a close up of your interior construction? Did you actually wood panel the inside? She looks great.

Regards,

JJ

JJ -

I'll give you some more photos when I have some. But I do want to get the rooms done first. Yes, I have used some styrene to make it look more like a panelled room. The boat deck level will be much better. The stair is now done, and I will now start the ballustrades or what you call that in english. The aft end of A-deck will go on today, so I will probably add more bulkheads before I do more interior.

- Morten

Give me a few days over chrismas, and I will have a better update. I am half finished with the bulkheads on A-deck, so it is taking shape now.
