#46638, "Olympic and Britannic modelling thoughts"


          

Guys for making models of either of these ships. Are there any reference photos of the spaces on Britannic below the sun deck that covered the Poop Deck or below the covered aft Well Deck?

On Olympic, are there any photos or illustrations of the B deck Promanade?

These details add more to making these two ships look more real.

You mean pictures like these from the Olympic?




Maybe it could be an idea to make a rivetcounter for both of the sisterships of Titanic?

Those are of the A deck promanade though.

I think the B-deck promenades were very simular to the A-deck promenades on Olympic.
Bruce Ismay considered the B-deck space on Olympic a waste, because passengers were not using it as much as the A-deck promenade. So on Titanic, the B-deck space was incorporated into First class cabins with a private promenade.

Cool photo.

From this diagram you can sort of see the Cafe Parisian in the photo. Though the sun's brightness makes it difficult to see.

The plan you post is from the 1920's. The photo is from the maiden voyage era before the cafe was constructed. The light you see is from the aft end of the promenade which was completely open at this time.

Thanks Bob.
I wish I had some of your knowledge of these ships.
Unfortunately there are not many books, drawings, etc. written in Dutch. And although I am able to read and understand English, it is sometimes hard when there are used technical terms.
Anyway, this is not the subject of this thread, but thanks again.

Regards,
Marco Tulner

I never knew that. Thanks Bpread. On the deck plans, that is the only one I could find of Olympic. Is there any around of the original 1911 deck plan of Olympic?
