#45912, "Dave Ansett Airfix 1/400 Titanic"


          

Hi, firstly many thanks for letting me into your forums.
I recently bought the Airfix 1/400 titanic (purely because of budget) which I now regret.I know the Airfix kit is basically the same as the Academy kit (same mouldings). my problem is no photo-etched parts, wooden decking and all the other extra detail that goes with the Academy.Is there anywhere that I could purchase the "extras" associated with the Academy ? I've been checking all links but apart from toms modelworks, Ive hit a dead end..please help.
Regards DaveA

Hi Dave,

The Titanic kit that comes with the photo-etched (PE) parts and wooden decks is the Academy "Centenary 1/400 (14202)" edition. There is a Academy 1/400 "Model of the Year" 1998 edition too, and it is the same as the Centenary, minus the PE parts.

I was considering the Centenary edition too, but since I have no experience whatsover with PE parts, I chose the 1998 edition instead.

You can find the Centenary kit on ebay if you haven't checked there already. But since you've already invested on the Airfix model, I'm really not sure if the Toms Modelworks parts are compatiable (as they are for the 1998 Academy kit).

I wish I could help you further, but this is all I know.

Regards,

Rashed

I checked with the local model shop today where I purchased the Airfix and they've informed me that the Academy (premium) and Airfix are both exactly the same (made from the same mouldings. I've also checked ebay and there seems an abundance of sites selling the decking etc. many thanks for your help Rashed
