For me it was when I was 20, upon hearing the news that the wreck had been found. I recall looking at the pictures in the newspapers and magazines, fascinated and enthralled with the historical significance. Some years later it was kick started again with the Cameron film and all of the emerging images and footage of the wreck. A visit to Florida in 2001 offered the chance to visit the museum there, and I was blown away with the exhibition, which, for me brought home the scale of the human side of the tragedy. I live in Southampton, so it's of such importance locally, you can't really escape it, which is fine for me! Like many, I've collected some reference, watched many documentaries and bought the Minicraft kit, which I plan to build as soon as I can. As a life long model maker, it's one model I've been looking forward to building the most. I mainly build motorsport models, so a ship will be a big change for me.
