Greetings from Thailand Adam!

I discovered TRMA and your gorgeous project just a few days ago. Thought it fitting to join the forum here yesterday on the 100th anniversary. First, I want to say how beautiful your model is. Your work is simply incredible especially considering the small 1/400 scale. When I look at the details in your photos I am amazed that your model is only around 3 inches wide (beam). All I can say is that you must have incredibly steady hands! If you don't mind I have a few questions.

The first question is early on you mentioned, "Firstly, the fore well deck is horizontal and not parralel with the keel line - so it has an uneven balwark that reduces in height front to back - this will be rapaired but not just yet." Have you made that repair? In regards to that, compared to the straight waterline, it appears the Titanic's (keel line?)/decks must be bowed concave upwards. Each deck's portholes also follow this slightly curved line. This is really apparent in front quartering photos of Titanic. I don't have any of the reference materials here and am wondering is this true that the decks aren't horizontal but bowed?

The second question is did you paint all white items in matte white? It's hard to tell from the photos but some of the upper decks walls and miscellaneous machinery, sort of have that plastic sheen look.

OK, a couple of comments. One of the glaring Academy kit deficiencies becomes very obvious with the addition of the very detailed PE upgrade parts. I'm talking about the ships white Lego-ish detail deck vent funnels. Not only do they not look correctly shaped, but OMG they appear to be solid blobs of plastic, not hollow like they should be. Does no one make more accurately detailed funnels? They probably wouldn't stand out so badly except your model is so finely detailed.

This is just my opinion so please feel free to ignore it. ;^) The marked up photo below shows the aft stairs going from B deck down to the aft Well deck, which looks a bit peculiar because the gates are closed. At first glance it looks like an error like the stairs just dead end into the B deck aft railing. After watching the movie Titanic again yesterday I watched as a distraught Rose had to briefly stop and open the gate as she ran down the stairs to the Well deck heading for the stern.



For me personally it just looks slightly odd, but again just my 2 worth.

Finally, thanks so much for posting your progress and including excellent photos. I've learned so much from you just by following this thread.

Best regards!

Jim Murphy
