#4470, "1/48th scale Titanic"


          

Hi Folks,

here's the first pic of my second 1/48th scale Titanic under construction. I started work on Friday. It helps that I still have the moulds from the first model.

so this is the nearly 20 foot long model, correct? I can't wait to see this thing take shape. It's going to be amazing to see how you actually construct a model this large. The 1/144s are big, but this is a whole different animal...

Please post many pictures of the construction process!!!

Yes that is great news. I really look forward to this build as I read your book daily in my efforts to construct my 1:175 version.

Will you have willing assistants ? She's going to be quite big and heavy as she progresses, so a lot of hard work ahead for you, but pleasure for the rest of us. 1:48 scale will look fantastic.

Thank you for sharing,

Ken

Looking forward to seeing you build this and it will be great comparing this to your earlier 1/48th. Is the specification to build this to the same level of detail as before?
To build this in less than a year is equally impressive. Best of luck.

P.S - you could update your book with new discoveries etc that you found since your last 1/48th

Well with my expectancy of this model due to you being the creator of this one. I am setting my expectancies of this baby to be extremely high or otherwise I am going to consider burying your book.

Don't let us down.

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.

Thanks for your encouraging replies folks. The idea is to show the port-side as launched and the starboard-side as leaving Southampton. The two hull halfs will be separated by a thick opague glass pane (this itself will weigh half a ton and it is up to me to get this shifted up to the fourth floor so stay tuned!).
Thank goodness I still have all the moulds used for the first model. We're busy casting resin items and drawing deck plank seams onto the decks. This time the seams are being drawn on with very thin black ink (0.13 mm).
This model will not be as detailed as the first, there will be no shell plating nor rivetsbut a great deal of the interior will be visible including the engine rooms.

This is an interesting concept for a model, Peter. Since one side of the model will depict the ship as launched, it will not have the screens on the forward section of the promenade deck, correct?

it's looking great. keep up the good work

That is correct Robert. In fact the port side will more or less represent the Olympic. There will be some challenges; amongst others it seems that as launched all the deckhouse windows hadn't been sawn open yet; only the framework of the officers quarters had been mounted and nothing else, as far as I can tell the welldecks, forecastle and poop; B- and A-deck were planked, I'm not too sure about the boatdeck; the lounge and smokeroom roofs were most likely not planked yet.
Any input will be appreciated.

Peter

Leon,

including these would boost the construction time (and hence the price) into the astronomical! You wouldn't find these on most builder's models either. If I were to build a 1/24th scale model I think I'd include them.

Peter

Hi Peter,

So if I understand you will not work on the exterior of the model but rather the inside?

There'll not be running the hull rivets as models of Harland & Wolf?

Thank you for the pictures if you have pictures of the preparation of the hull as the installation of "Framing" tried if you have time to post some pictures I'd love to see that Peter.

Again thank you to share your work.

You'll 1/24th scale model made?
Regards.



Français:

Salut Peter,

Donc si j'ai bien compris vous allez pas travaillé sur l'extérieur du modèle mais plutôt l'intérieur ?

Il n'y auras pas de rivets la coque sera lice comme les modèles de Harland & Wolf ?

Merci pour les photos si vous avez des photos de la préparation de la coque comme la pose des " Framing" essayé si vous en avez le temps de posté quelques photos j'aimerais bien voir ça Peter.

Encore merci de faire partagé votre travaille.

Vous allez réalisé un modèle échelle 1/24ème ?

Here's a small update. Nearly all decks have been veneered and the seams drawn on. Here you can see the boatdeck in the foreground and the promenade deck behind.
We're constantly busy casting items, using the masters and the moulds from the first model. All cranes are done including their switch-boxes etc. We've also done all Gymnasium sytle windows and 2nd Class windows.

I hope to see another photograph.

What is the plan that is underneath?

Leon,

several decks of the Grand Staircase will be visible but not the Parisienne Cafe. The areas around the stern that will be opened up are beneath the waterline. As requested in your email I'll try to give you all advice I can regarding the Grand Staircase providing I have the information. I don't think I have anything that you don't have.

The plan that you can see is the 401 Promenade Deck plan.

Here are some pics from today.

Peter

Peter,

It really cool to see inside of the Titanic that you build in halfs! I forget what you build it those of the half Titanic models for?

It make me thinking... I will like to build a half of Titanic wreck in 1/48 scales so it can be look inside of the ruins rooms!!? I would like to build for someone as you do it? And I will do it! (:

William

Your work is truly magnificent model that will change our view of things.

I think its going to be fantastic.

Leon,

that must be Father Pirrone's Lusitania model. I haven't got a clue how he does it. He builds these monsters in his spare time and he's already built three of them.
The model I'm working on now will only have parts of the hull opened up and not a complete hull side.

I understand better the work that you do.

As wolfgangelessar explains its resemblance to the cut on the hull as Ken Marschall painting done on these.

Never did it was done until today.
Thank you to share your work.

Regards.

PS :
Have you scanned for rear windows Titanic and it's not olympic square but rectangular as the promenade deck, or I was wrong.


Français:

Peter,

Je comprend mieux le travaille que vous allez faire.

Comme wolfgangelessar explique sa ressemblera aux coupe sur la coque comme Ken Marschall à réalisé sur ces peinture.

Jamais sa n'as était réalisé jusqu'à aujourd'hui.
Merci de faire partager votre travaille.

PS Avez vous analysé pour les fenêtres arrière Titanic et olympic elle ne son pas carré mais rectangulaire comme le pont promenade ou c'est moi qui est dans l'erreur.

Looking very nice, Peter. This must be incredably frustrating, time consuming and many moments of head scratching to complete. It's not your standard model ship. The cut in half nature of it is complex. Well, it looks it.

Hi Peter,

I see that it's much harder for you to realize this model compared to model 1 / 48 Museum Branson.

Peter thank you for these images as Jonathan explains what kind of model is made very complex.

Thank you for sharing.

The interior of the model will not be visible from the centre-line. The idea behind it is that both hull halfs will be firmly fixed to a frosted glass pane which will give the viewer the impression of looking at a full hull model seeing the reflection of the model on the glass. What will be seen of the interior can only be seen through openings in the hull sides.

Peter

I hope you are well?

I want to tell you that I expect joy of new photos of your work.

Another question, did you build the hull of the model or are you going to last?

I saw you make four stacks.

I look forward to the updated.

Best regards.

PS: I ordered the two books you tell me about the Titanic wreck I expect there to one to two weeks of waiting.




Français:

Peter,

J'espère que vous allez bien ?

Je voulez vous dire que j'attends avec joie de nouvelle photos de votre travaille.

Une autre question , avez-vous construit la coque du modèle ou allez-vous le faire en dernier ?

J'ai vue que vous réalisez les quatre cheminées.

J'ai hâte de voir les mis à jours.

PS: J'ai commander les deux livres que vous m'avez dis sur l'épave titanic je les attends il y à une à deux semaine d'attente.

Thanks for your kind words Brians, Leon, Harms and Endare. Leon, we will not start the hull in the next few weeks, we're going to get the deckhouses done first.
Here you can see we've completed the reciprocating engine room skylight. I came across the beautiful slate grey shade which I've decided to use for the deckhouse steel roofs. It is darker than on the first model but I think it looks marvellous and now I think it should be darker than on the first model.
We have also started wrapping the skin around the funnels, works great, you can see it in the pictures.

Peter

Thanks for your interest Marcel. I'll indeed keep the other thread going also and will post model pictures there too.
Here are some pics taken just now that not even the client has seen yet. This is the master for a fibre-glass hull. I haven't done this before in this size yet. We'll see how it goes.

No problem Peter, thanks for the update and I'm sure the fibre-glass hull will turn out great. I'm in awe of your skill and method of work. I've been pouring over your book, taking careful notes in prep for my future building projects. Baby steps, but its good to be prepared.

On a side note, your work space is great. I wish I had as much room as you! Then again, with the size of the projects you work on, you'd need it!

Regards,
Marcel J

Hallo Toretto,

es werden beide Rumpfhälften teilweise geöffnet um das Innere zu sehen. Hierzu gehört die große Freitreppe, alle Kessel und Kohlebunker sowie die Maschinenräume. Eine Beleuchtung ist vorgesehen.

both hull-halfs will be partially opened up to see the interior. This will include the Grand Staircase, the coal-bunkers, all boilers and the engine rooms. Interior lighting will be installed.

Petet

Wie lange wirst du für den Bau der Titanic brauchen? Kannst du das ungefähr sagen?

How long will you need to build the Titanic? Can you say that about?
