Ok I am about 75% complete on the break area and I guess I'll walk you through what I did kind of step by step.

Ok you see above what I did with the boilers that is pretty self explanatory and I just added some minor details. With 1/350 scale it is hard to get some of the real small details and since this area is going to go through a lot more detailing I didn't do a ton for the boilers but you can defiantely tell what they are and that is what I am going for. Anyways I started off by building a section of the double about an 1 1/2 inches in from the break. I used the deck chairs that came with the kit. They made great spacers and were fairly close to scale height of 2 ft at 1/350 so hey there you go. SImple easy and no hard work required.



The next thing I did was install the starboard keel and laid a layer of tinfoil over the double hull top. I built the #2 forward coal bunker and put a tinfoil top on this as well. I weathered and painted. I heavily rusted this area as it has not been disturbed since the ship sank and because of the amount of damage to these areas. Rusting just seems to happen more around the damaged parts of the ship more then it does on others. REMEMBER TO TEST FIT EVERYTHING BEFORE TRYING TO INSTALL.
Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5





The next thing I built were the uptakes for the boilers. I couldn't find any drawings of the Titanic's boilers so I used other boiler diagrams as reference. Since this area is going to be heavily obscured I didn't put to much detail into them. I just wrapped tinfoil around a paint brush then crushed and attached them to the boilers. I finished weathering the boilers and the uptakes and fitted them for installation.
Step 1

Step 2

Step 3


Remember I mentioned building walls out of tinfoil for the break area? Well here are some examples of the results. This technique will come in very handy for the stern. I tried to replicate what some of the damge inside, from the pictures I saw from James Cameron's 1997 expedition, due to decay and water damage from the sinking. I didn't put anything in for the dining room on D Deck and only put the boiler casing for F deck in. This is made out of steel and probably wouldn't rot like the wood so probably is still intact. I glued the decks together and crushed the walls between the decks so that they would match the height of the areas they were installed.

E Deck staterooms and scotland road

Close up of that same area where scotland road would have run

These are the C Deck staterooms.


Once all this was complete I simply installed the decks into the main hull. I glued the deck fronts to a piece of decking from the kit that would allow the decks remain in place.
The piece behind the coal bunker is where I attached the front of the decks to then just inserted all the decks as one piece then glued.

I also started the extra weathering of the boiler room and rusticles between the sloping decks. More weathering is needed on visible areas. Once all the weathering is complete I will form and cut the tinfoil patches for the hull break area.













I also folded the sides of the Boat Deck up so that it sags in the middle which is more acurate.


I threw this in there for reference
