In response to In response to 29


          

Hello Brian,

thank you for your nice comment.
By the way, as explained in the first posts somewhat, I will give an overview for all readers, what I have done already and I am currently working on. You may be interested in the fact, that I have also built the 1:350 kits of Titanic and Lusitania some 18 years ago, rather crude, with no etched parts or painted window frames, etc.

But now I am working in scale 1:100 as illustrated in these posts:
1. RMS Titanic diorama, berth 44 of Southampton Dock, with buildings, railway, tugs.
2. RMS Olympic (1913), illuminated with fibre optics.
3. Smaller ships, yachts, the Traffic, etc., about 1912, as separate models.

I started with the Titanic 1998 to 2000, but delayed it for some years due to permanent upgrade of Titanic research details of this site, meanwhile (2000 to 2008) building the dock with sheds, buildings, cranes, London and South Western Railway (LSWR) equipment, the six tugs, etc... Later (2008 to 2011) I built hulls (bread and butter system), as shown in this post earlier, for the smaller ships like yachts, the Traffic, etc. about 1912, as separate models, also including all the fitting parts for them. From 2011 until now I am building a second set of fitting parts for Olympic and missing parts for Titanic (masts, funnels, lifeboats (PUR-castings), all davits (Tin-castings), etched deckchairs, etc.).

Always keen to do the most uninspiring work first, I am currently finishing the modifications on the 850 to 900 figures already bought for these models. Then I will build the sirocco vents and some other missing parts for the Olympic and Titanic and the dock. Then I will finish the smaller ships and the RMS Titanic diorama. After that I will built the illuminated hull for the RMS Olympic (1913) and will finish it with the already finished fitting parts.

After that lengthy procedure, I hope, I will cured of that hefty model building virus, after all. As you may know, most of these larger projects are shelved some years later due to taking to long time or changed living circumstances, with some exceptions, of course, like Jason's RMS Titanic's. If somebody could be motivated or re-motivated with his own projects due to this thread, would be great.

I will show some more illustrative photos of the work already done and the further development (after getting these 850 figures off the table).

Best regards,

Michael
