Hiya and thanks for the comments. I believe your model was far and away much tidier than mine and it is a terrible shame what happened. Look at the bright side - your spares parts box just became oneof the best in the business..

Wow @ the whole Academy vs Minicraft thing. Seriously. As far as I can tell the only thing the Academy kit has going for it the optional timber decking sets. I have no Minicraft experience, so can only take what is offerd in other blogs as opinion, but it certainly looks sharper in some aspects.

This might sound weird but if I built again, I would probably build another Academy kit. but properly. I dont like the sound of building the Academy one as a trial for the minicraft venture.. the trial kit IMHO should be the same kit as the real run.

On the other hand if someone offers an aftermarket timber deck set for the minicraft kit.. then Im in! I guess I am spoiled by the AE kit and to me as a virgin shipbuilder it sets the standard of what I expect in a ship kit.

I have an idea for your "wreck "if you like.. how about doing a cross section? imagine cutting the ship like a french stick of bread - and taking one of the slices out.. I been toying with the idea of this with my spare (albeit plundered) kit. Maybe take a 2 inch slice out the middle and do the interior decks, engines maybe show the staircase? or the engine room? or take a slice at the front with the wheel house? just a thought as I have no Idea how salvageable your kit is. When I have busted kits before I usually pull the good bits off and stick the original stuff back on and give to a nephew or something to play with. Or use it as a trial paint kit - I have a squadron of tank hulks for that purpose ! Anyways I have not seen anyone else do that with a Titanic kit.

Once again thanks for the comments - respect!

Adam
