#5592, "Adam Lehmann, 1/400 Titanic, Academy Anniversay Edition 14202"


          

Hello everyone.

This is something I have been planning for about 3 years. I will be posting my build log here so i hope you can help me out with feedback and criticism where warranted. I am currently posting on another forum but am receiveing little to no feedback and although I am familiar with that particular organisation, I feel that the military orientation to the page may make a Titanic build log somewhat benign.

this is a simple preliminary post to introduce myself and to state my objectives. I am an accomplished diorama and armour model builder, but have very limited shipbuilding experience. I have very limited knowledge of the terms used but am willing to learn to use the right names for various things where needed.

Why I chose the Academy kit ?

I probably would not of with the aid of hindsight but I spent my money and decided to stick it through. Besides I am finding it very difficult to find another complete build log of this particular kit online so maybe an opportunity to discover what this kit has to offer for others to use aswell? I bought the Academy kit #1458 3 years ago when I was weekend manager of a hobby shop, and before I left I got it because I liked the eye candy of the box art, and nothing else was like it in the shop. After buying it I got advanced modellers syndrome again and instantly needed photo etch hand rails. From there I bought the complete set of 1/400 Toms PE sets for this kit. As I began assembly, however I realised I was in over my head, had not planned enough how I was going to do this build, and certainly began making mistakes. The kit was shelved "for later".

Fast forward to christmas this year and I saw the anniversary kit for sale and just had to have it with all that PE and the timber decks.. and now I have it. I now know of many issues with this kit, and will happily blog my way through them for your benefit.

What I did lack and it was very apparent was quality reference material, so I have spent much time reading and buying books for thsi project. The two primary reference books that have been just outstanding have been the "Titanic in photographs" (from this website), and Peter Davies-garners Handbook on model building the Titanic. Other books include various titles but none as professional as these two.

Where I am at now.

Actually I am at work right now, but be home soon (post some WIP pictures)I have already put a few hours into this kit and started making corrections/ modifications. Pictures to follow soon. I am struggling with the well decks and some issues there but more on that later.

Lastly,

If anyone is interested in what sort of work I normally do, here are some links ( I hope I post them correctly)
