Morten,

Your 1/350 Titanic is a benchmark of quality, and inspired me to order a deluxe minicraft kit for my own.

May I ask, what are your thoughts on the hull plating of this model? From photographs and kits in other scales I see that the 1/350 kit hull plating is too pronounced. My solution so far has been to begin sanding the hull. Its going well but its just a tad tricky to make the plating and detail depth even. I'll try to get some pictures available once I'm satisfied with my progress.

I was also wondering what you might have learned about matching the white paint on the hull with white paint on the superstructure? There's always that little shade of difference on this kit because of the plastic colors. I am considering using an off-white color for scale, but also as a way to add pigment and more easily cover the black hull.

But really, you've got one heck of a great model here, and I can see you had to walk a fine line between the limits of the kit and the prototype, quite impressive work.

PS, if I had to pick my very favourite scratchbuilt feature you added, it would be the individual "stick" reinforcements on the foredeck breakwater and other areas, I've only seen that on 1/144 replicas.

Your work is quite motivating as I move ahead with my projcet.

Regards,

Justin
