A post was made on Facebook regarding the accuracy of the phone box at the bows. Here is an explanatory note I added to the Fine Details page, below the photo showing this phone box near the anchor crane:

Note: the portable phone box just to the left of the anchor crane has two swing-out doors (see the image at the top of this page). It was constructed based on an early Olympic photo. Sometime after this, an enlargement of a Titanic photo at Queenstown revealed that Titanic's phone box on the docking bridge had a single door. Based on this, the phone at the bows may have had a single door also. I could have built a new one to replace it, but it was so well made that I elected to leave it as is. The other two phone boxes on the model - on the docking bridge and in the crow's nest - were built later and each have single doors. )

I also added this to the short list of details that are correct for Olympic but not Titanic on the page "Achieving Historical Accuracy."

As Jonathan Smith noted, this model was started in 2003, and we know many things now that we didn't then. Some fittings like the phone box I made years ago even though they might have only been added near the end of the build. Many things I corrected as new information came to light. (I kidded Bob Read that he was trying to drive me crazy every time he discovered a change to one of the vents.) And I don't claim to be perfect; with thousands of corrections to note on my plans, I might have missed something along the way. I welcome anyone asking about something they see, and anything I know of that's not correct I've made a point of noting on the page "Achieving Historical Accuracy".
