#1553, "Morten Jensen's 1/144 Titanic model"
Thu Sep-25-08 09:23 AMby Morten Jensen

  

          

Finally, six days ago my 1/144 Titanic hull arrived in the mail. It's now been six days continuous work, but today the hull was primed. I have added some details such as new doors, grills, rudder ring, mooring details, rings around the anchor hawse pipes, anchors and such. All sidelights and windows are drilled and cut out. I did notice that I need some more sanding around the propeller wings though. When that is done I can apply the colors and start adding some decks.

Wow! Only six days and you have got so much accomplished. Every time I see pictures of that hull it always looks so good.
Don't forget to post a lot of updates; I`m interested to see how you build your 1:144. I`m sure I will learn a lot.

Thanks for sharing! Is the hull purchase from somewhere or order in with request?

It's interesting, but I have one question, what about the remaining parts that's not provided on the "1/144 Semi-Kit Model Page"?

I guess itís time for a small update.

The hull is now painted. The yellow stripe is on, but decals are still remaining. Does anyone know where to get these? They can wait anyway. After some weeks wondering what to do with the decks, my decision did today fall on planking all decks with individual planks. When planked and then sanded the decks look quite realistic, and I can avoid all the grain in the veneer. So far I have almost done the forward well deck, but now I am way too tired of planking to finish it today. Tomorrow I have a day off, so I hope to have the forecastle planked as well. Itís probably the most boring job ever, but I think itís worth it. In the photo below it looks darker than in real life, but I will take some new photos when I have it done.

Ron Ė the largest opening s you see are the outlets for the condensers. From memory, the other ones are intakes for the boilers and such. Anyone please correct me if I am wrong.

With a ruler and a x-acto knife. Pionts for the ruler to follow were set on each side of the veneer. The strakes are cut to 1 mm. It's too hard to get it any smaller.

That model is looking like a miniature of Master Peter Davies-Garner's Model. It is looking good and keep up the good work. BTW last July 4th my Revell Model that I have started a couple of years ago has got it's propellers and masts and the ladder like parts that run up to the near tops of the masts on it.

Ice is great for drinks but not for ships to run over or for us to step on. Please check out my home site! The BTRA! check my profile for it.

Nice! So for the 1/144 scale model, you have to build the upper decks and walls?

Do you have a first name? On this forum we like to introduce ourselves with a real name.

As you see, this is the old topic with construction photos of the model. The new photos is in a single topic. And yes, as you can see from these photos everything from the hull and up has to be made from scratch. A short time ago Robert Hahn released a full set of styrene walls for a huge ammount of money, but on this model I have done everything myself.

Morten,
Hello,

It is always interesting looking at your photos when you show them. On several occasions I have admired your work but never had the chance to comment.

I have a question for you. I don't know a lot about all the precise details of the Titanic but I am curious about one of your photos. On the photo showing three rectangular openings aft of the bilge keel, (two with some sort of screen and one open) what are these openings for. I don't think I have ever seen these on the Titanic before or any other ship and I am curious as to what they are for?

I have seen intakes on ships before but those look very substantial compared to what I have seen and I wondering about them.

Thank you and regards,
Ron

Morten,

I, too, have often admired your work. I am always amazed by the level of workmanship that you display. I'm looking forward to watching the updates on this 1/144 model. Is this the one that the museum ordered from you?

Thanks.

Regards,

Kyle Mesker

Yes, this model is being built on comission. It's going to Germany, and it was talk about that it will be displayed somewhere in Italy later as well.

Morten,I always check out any post of your amazing work,I really look forward to seeing your progress,would you mind telling me where you got the wood material for the decking,also where would you recommend to get the different size drill bits for drilling the hull? I know one has to drill many different size holes. Are you going to scratch build many of the smaller parts like cranes and vents.I have been experimenting with the mold making kit from bare-metal and will be making my own cranes,cowl vents & motors but the probably the most hard will be making the crane jibs for my 1/144.Thanks for your time. Kevin

Drill bits is avaliable at any hardware store... I do not know about the venner, but my veneer is from a local workshop that makes interior. I don't know where one can get this elsewhere.

Cranes and vents comes from the resin sets from Peter Garner and Daniel Reed. I do not hav the time to build the vents myself.

- Morten

Morten,Thanks for your quick response and helpful info,yes i don't know about venner either, I don't really have the time either to make each of the vents but I was thinking about like making a master & mold of each type of vent,motors and stands,making masters of the parts where there is more than a few so I can make duplicates from the molds for my 1/144 Titanic if not seeing what's still available and maybe down the road I'll make a Britannic and Olypic. I really enjoy studying everything about different parts of Titanic.Look forward to more of your post on the progress of your excellent model.Thanks,Kevin

I think it is time for an update again.

As you can see, the forward well deck and the forecastle are added, and I have started some detailing in that area. I get tired of cutting and gluing planks, so it is nice to have some other things to do as well. The hard work with the deck does pay off, though. The effect is really good. Tomorrow I hope to have the aft well deck planked so I can get started with the poop deck and the enclosed 2nd class promenade. The breakwaters and the forward end of B-deck are done, but still drying after the paintjob.









- Morten

Just magnificent! Can you perhaps share how you made the doors on the well deck bulk head facing the well deck? I would also like to know the thickness of the veneer you are using (by the way, you are cutting it 1 mm wide but how long are you cutting them?) Also what is the process you used to make the well deck to B deck bulkhead ( I love the detail on the railing and portholes )

That is enough questions for now I will pester you later for more details.

Thomas -

Thank you. The doors at the forward well deck are parts from the resin set from Peter Davies Garner. I don't think that set is avaliable any more. The veneer is 0.6 mm thick, as used for cabinetmaking. Instead of cutting eac individual plank, I let them run over the entire deck. Each plank would probably look more realistic if I managed to get it right, but if one piece is glued wrong or something like that it ywould be a pain. I tried on a small sample... The bulkhead is as simple as you can get it. One 0.5 mm plate as a base. Then a 0.1 mm piece is laid on top of it. The porthoes are drilled out, and the PE portholes are glued in place. The bulkhead is then done... The other details you see are 1/600 Titanic railing cutted down and glued in place. 10 Pieces in total with the PE parts... Not hard at all.

Regards,

- Morten

Thanks for the info, I am going to use it in my model. I have Peter's PE and Resin parts coming soon Now I just need to save up to get the Hull.

Can you post a macro shot of the well deck and the forecastle? I would like to see more detail on the planking and parts. Thanks in advance.

More questions.....

What type of glue are you using to adhere the wood veneer to the plastic?

And..

What plans are you using to make yours? R Hahns or Peters from the book? Or, perhaps some other plans?

Inquiring minds need to know

The model is about six feet... I am not used to measure in feet and inches. Divide Titanic's length by 144.

"What type of glue are you using to adhere the wood veneer to the plastic?"

Usual super glue. The type that sets in a few seconds.

"What plans are you using to make yours? R Hahns or Peters from the book? Or, perhaps some other plans?"

I do not know if it would be possible to do this without Hahn's plans... I do also use Peter's book witch has been a tool for me since it was printed. I also use Bruce's plans. Those are great. Since some interior will be added to the model, Bruce's plans are a must have.

I'll try to have some photos ready later tonight or tomorrow.

Regards,

- Morten

Since the last update the aft well deck and the poop has been added. As you can see, the bulkheads have also been added, and by the moment I am detailing the poop and the 2nd class promenade so I can lay the aft end of B-deck. My PE benches arrived today, witch I have been waiting for. I can then get the promenade finished and locked. The decks for the 1st class private promenade and entrances have also been planked and tiled, and the port one has been added.

Yes, Titanic had very beautiful lines for such a huge ship. Definitely not what you would call a "Fat Lady", slim lines, uncluttered deck (too bad about the life boat ) A true luxury liner, even by today's standards.

But I digress....

Morten, looking forward to more pics, she is coming along great. I am excited to get working on mine (space and time permitting) this winter, but will be looking to yours for guidance.

Again, nice job.

I am so impressed with the quality and speed you have applied to this model. With my schedule and career choice. My own Titanic model is at the same basic point as yours, but after 5 years of construction. Great Job, Nice Work !!!!!!!

Much the same that I feel now when actually building it! Afraid to make a complete mess out of it since I have not done this before. But I see now that it is comming along nicely. More pics will be posted during the weekend. The aft end of B-deck is added, and some of the bulkheads are realy for fitting. The first class entrance and the private promenades are taking shape as well.

Morten,

Wow, I am very impressed with your work, It look Great! I did noticed there 2 anchors on both sides.. Did you build by yourself or come from order parts?

Regards,

William Barney

Hi,
Excellent work's Morten! you're really a good modeler with attention to detail.
Do you set the steam valve on your model as the TRMA has discovered?

Thank you again for your pics.

Best TRMA....

Kind Regards.

William -

I did not build the anchors myself. I bought them through eBay. There was 15 in a set, so I have anchors for a while.

Cyril -

The plan is to place them as the TRMA have discovered. I will add them later on. By the moment I am working to get as much bulkheads and decks added as pollsible. Smaller details will be added later.

- Morten

Hi Morten,

Ok, it would be a shame with a model that also managed the steam valves aren't well area.
Look forward to watching advantage of pics !

Sorry, I haven't had time for writing and posting photos due to school and such. I'll post some as soon as I come home in a few days.

I am now finishing the B-deck, and I have started the forward end of A-deck.

CD - Yes, this is the 1/144 "kit".

Thomas - I don't have the anchors or the plans in front of me by the moment and I do not remember the size. But I can say that they fit the plans perfect. I found them through eBay.

Regards,

- Morten

Here are some new photos for you. Iím sorry for the quality and light, but the camera is broken and I could not use the function that I would like to use. So the photos appear much darker than the real thing. The windows are not as dark as in the photos.

Anyway, the B-deck is taking shape, and there are not much left before I can add the A-deck. The forward end of A-deck is being made by the moment, and some planking is laid. I am now waiting for more PE-parts, so much will be on hold for a week or two. I will have to work on other parts then, like the forecastle, poop and such.

I guess it is time for a new update now. Due to exams at school I have not progressed as much as I have wanted to the last weeks. I am in my first year at school to become a ships officer, so I will not have the time for modelling the next few weeks. But at least the A deck is taking some shape. Two thirds have been attached to the hull, and the aft section is currently being planked. I have also started the GSC foyer. The stair can be seen lying for drying at the deck. Some furniture has to be made. So, over Christmas I hope to have at least the main bulkheads at the A deck up.

If you get a chance, could you post a close up of your interior construction? Did you actually wood panel the inside? She looks great.

Hi Morten,
can you tell me how did you make the railings of your model ?
Are they photoetchings ? And if so, which is the producer ?

Hi there -

All the railings are made of PE brass, and if I remember correct the railings were from Tom's modelworks.

I'll give you some more photos when I have some. But I do want to get the rooms done first. Yes, I have used some styrene to make it look more like a panelled room. The boat deck level will be much better. The stair is now done, and I will now start the ballustrades or what you call that in english. The aft end of A-deck will go on today, so I will probably add more bulkheads before I do more interior.

- Morten

wow morten that is an amazing model! Looks really good! Can't wait to see it finished. Doesn't break you heart knowing you won't be able to keep it when finished?

Do you sell models? If yes, how much would a 1/144 model cost me? And how much for a 1/350? I live in sweden and norway isn't to far away from here.

I just wanted to give you an update on the model. It is coming along nicely, and the A-deck is taking shape now. I havenít been able to do as much as I wanted in the holiday, but a lot has been done. I hope to have the remaining bulkheads on A-deck up by the week or the next one. Then the Boat Deck will be added. I attach a few photos for you to see.

Superlative model!! You've inspired me to build one myself.How much roughly was the shipping and handling charge to Europe, if you don't mind me asking? I live in England and was considering purchasing the hull myself around June.

Really good work Morten! It looks great!

Are you placing something behind the windows to make them look darker or is it the photos? Also, what are you using for your walls? They seem really really thin, can they really support the weight of the deck that's coming over them? How thick are they? thx

Sorry for the late reply, but I simply forgot to answer you. I place styrene behind the windows. It may sound strange and awful, but it does look really good. In the photos the windows appear a bit darker, but in real life it looks much better. Even Peter has done this on the big 1:48. The walls are thin, yes, but they do not have any support holding some weight. They are stiffened, and they are more than strong enough. In some photos the light shines through, but when the deck is placed upon them, that will not be visible. You can see that on the aft end of B-deck.

The forward end of the boat deck will be added this weekend

Regards,

- Morten

Morten, no problem. So you're using dark styrene that you can see through? So it almost looks like a tinted window but in scale it looks really good. Or maybe you're using black styrene that you can't see through, but in that case it wouldn't be necessary to cut out all the windows.

Yes I saw that the light shined through on some photos but as you said that won't be a problem later on. But if you would've lightened the model the plastic walls would've been to thin. May I ask how thick they are? 0,5 mm?

Looking forward to an update Morten!

Take care!

Elixander

0,5mm yes. If the model would have been lighted I would do it different, but I fount this thickness very easy to bend around corners and such. You can not see through the styrene in the windows, but I still have to cut the windows out. It is of course very gloss, and from right angles it can look like glass. I also get a nice shadow effect from the windows since the styrene is behind the bulkhead and the frames are on the outside.

Itís been a while, but here is a new update on the model.

As you can see, things have progressed a lot since the last photos. All bulkheads on A deck are in place, and the forward end of the boat deck with the bridge front is added. By the moment I am working with the beams for the middle section of the boat deck. All piping, deck chair number plates, beams and such are included under the decks. The A-deck screens are also fully framed on the inside, but the insides are not visible in these photos. Now that I can work on other parts than just bulkheads, things are progressing a lot faster. And with the bridge and bridge wings taking shape, it is finally becoming the Titanic.

Here is some photos for you. I am sorry for the quality, but my camera is still broken. I hope to have it ready for the next photos.

wow Morten, it's coming along beautifully!

May I ask what's wrong with your camera? Btw, if you want your pictures to look better then you should try using a higher aperture which will increase the depth of field and make the pictures less blurry. But increasing your aperture will result in a slower shutter speed so you'll need a tripod. It's a little extra work but the result is worth it! :)

Once again, great looking model.

I know. The camera went in the asfalt some months ago, and now it only works on a few modes. When I have it fixed, the camera is able to take crisp sharp shots.

Hello Morten,

I just became a member of this wonderful association and had an opportunity to take in some of the models and modellers as they relate to the RMS Titanic.

First and foremost, are you fairly young to be able to do such outstanding work that you are presently doing on the 6ft. Titanic model.

I was about in my mid 30's when I completed roughtly a 4.5ft. model of RMS Titanic.

By the way, do you know where I can obtain a finshed hull of Titanic so I can follow-up on a new model similar to the one you are presently constructing. Thanks!

Ray Johnson-Newfoundland, Atlantic, Canada

Hello Ray -

Welcome to the forum. I'm sure you will find the forums here much helpful since you are planning a new model. If you look through the home page, you will find a link to the 1/144 model. You will find the hull from there.

Personally I do not think age has something to do with how skilled one is for modeling or such. I am currently 20 years old, and have been building models since I was 7. I got my first Titanic when I was 8. Since then I have built 12 Titanic's and a lot of other liners. I got my first order when I was 16 years old. (My latest Britannic wreck that is displayed in Athens).

Good luck with your research!

Regards,

- Morten

It`s sure coming along nicely.
You work so quickly. I only wish I could move so fast; I think I`m on the 10 year plan for the 1:144.

Hi Morten.


Also, what did you use for the anti-fouling paint? It's great!

Hi!
Very, very impressive modelling skills and choice of model, Morten!
I am considering buying the 144 semi-kit myself.
I have read all the post here, but I got lost somewhere and started to drool on the pictures instead, so I got a couple of questions if that's okay:

- I really like the idea of planking the ships deck, and in my opinion the only way to do it. But what do you glue the "plankings" to? Some kind of plastic? Is this the same as you build the walls etc. from? What kind of material is this?

- Did I get you right when you said that you was cutting the planking 1mm wide? Will this be scale-correct?


Thanks a lot
Best regards,

Lars


PS: I was wondering about your name. Seems very scandinavian, am I right?
I am from Norway

Hello Lars -

Welcome to the forum! I am a Norwegian myself. Where in Norway are you from?

The deck planking is glued on top of sheets of styrene. The decks are also stiffened from the underside so the dont bend so much. The planks are glued with Testors CA glue.

Titanic's deck planking was five inched wide, witch is .85mm in 1/144. 1mm should therefore be good enough

Regards,

- Morten

Time for a new update.

As you can see, the model has progressed a lot since the last pictures. The two forward thirds of the boat deck is on, together with their A-deck screens. By the moment I am currently focusing on getting the raised roof over the lounge finished, and then finish the GSC. Now that the model is really starting to look like something, I can see a very small light in the end of the tunnel. And I will soon be finished with those boring deck planksÖ

Dear Morten, your attention to detail on this model continues to amaze me. I wish you were making it for me.LOL.I just have one question though, did you build the fittings, such as the capstans, bollards and windlasses on the forcastle and poop decks yourself or did you purchase them from somewhere, they look superb.

Thank you, Martin.

Instead of building them myself, I bought the fittings from Peter Davies-Garner. He has stopped producing them now unfortunately.

Morten,I have been watching your progress and have been very impressed with how clean and professional looking your model is coming along which must be very imspiring for us who are either wanting to build a 1/144 or plan on making one,me,I've barely just started on my 1/144 and have spend lots of time studying everything before I really get started on my 1/144 this summer when I have more time from work,do you have an estimated time when you should be done with this for the place you are making it for,I really look forward to seeing the end result of which I know will look awesome-Thanks for the inspiration,I cannot wait to get back into it.Kevin

Time for a new update.

As you can see, there has been some progress lately. The bridge is now done, with all instruments, beams and what goes with it. Not shown in these photos, but the aft end of the boat deck is also finished and fitted together with the A-deck screens. Today I also finished the raised roof over the lounge, and it has been fitted as well. I have started constructing the tank room deckhouse, and it is about half finished.









I have also found out that repairing my camera will cost me more than a new one, so I will hopefully get better photos soon. (The current one is locked in a bad indoor mode and is not able to take clearer shots).

- Morten

Morten,
You are always so clean with your work, I`m really impressed. I cant Waite to see more photos; if you could take some detail shots when you can that would be great. I`m now fitting Peters bras hull plates to my hull. What a pain. Because I scratch built the hull and transcribed the hull plate lines and portholes before I got the brass plates, not everything is lining up. It`s turning out, but its slow going.
Like I said before, your work is an inspiration.

It has been a while, but here is a new update for you. I havenít been able to do as much as I wanted due to almost two months with exams, but as you can see, the model is really taking shape now. The first funnel is attached, and the deckhouses are nearly completed. I have the 4th funnel deckhouse remaining, though. I have also started building the davits, and I have a few of them ready already. The masts will be turned in one of the coming weeks in the workshop of a friend. I am really looking forward to see them finished.

Here are some new photos for you:

Hi Morten,

Your model of the RMS Titanic on 1.144 scale is really beautiful, good work while hoping to have other pics!
However do I have a question, why have you make the roof of the tank room same color as the mess of the officers and footbridge, you think that it's made of wood ?

Thank you.

Best TRMA....

Kind Regards.

"why have you make the roof of the tank room same color as the mess of the officers and footbridge, you think that it's made of wood ?"

I'm not sure if I understand your question... All other roofs than the funnel casings, exept the planked ones, was painted light grey. Here is a part from the paint reference:

" All other roof areas were painted light grey. Of these, there were three roof areas that were covered with canvas or a teak covering board and painted. This was not an uncommon practice at that time, and when canvas was used it was stretched tightly on all sides so that photographs donít readily reveal the material. Titanic roofs that fit this description are: the 2nd class elevator roof (aft), the navigating bridge roof, the two wing cab roofs and the roof over the officersí dining saloon (Note that although artist Ken Marschall depicted the bridge roof as having uncovered planking in a cut-away illustration, TRMA research has since shown this to be incorrect.) These canvas-covered roof areas should also be painted light grey. "

Does this answer your question?

Regards,

- Morten

Thank you Morten to answer my question, I thought always that the clear gray was used for the coating on the made wood roof, therefore all that was made of metal close to the funnels had a color dark gray, can you confirm that the tank room had a roof out of wooden and painted gray color clearly.


Thank's


Best TRMA....

Kind Regards.

You should post this as a separate topic in the main forum to get a better answer. But the tank room roof was a painted steel roof. The roof over the officers mess was covered with canvas and painted. This is exactly the same as you have done it in your plans...

A lot have progressed, but I have not wanted to upload photos yet. I can take some new ones either tomorrow or during the weekend.

The second funnel is added, and I have now started detailing the third one. The poop deck is comming nicely together, and the boat deck is being detailed.

Since you asked, here is a new update.

The second funnel is now attached, and I have begun working with the third one. I hope to have that done in a few days. The poop and forecastle are being detailed. All vents are in the other room for painting, so those will be added in a few days as well. I have also finished all the benches for the poop deck, so it won't be long until the benches for the other decks are done as well.

I hope you enjoy the photos.

Note... The first one shows the three first funnels. The third one have just one coat of paint added, witch is wery thin, so it look like an awful color. Together witht the lighting, the funnels might look like they are too yellow. But, seen in the real life, the color is way much better.

Finally! The last funnel is finished and added to the model. A lot of other detailing has also been done. I hope to have some photos uploaded by the weekend, and those will probably be the last ones before the model is finished. There is still a LOT to do, though...

Here are the latest pictures for you.

As you can see, there has been some progress lately. All the funnels are attached, and just a few vents are remaining. I have also started to add some railings. The masts will be made in a few days I hope. I have also started to build the davits, so those will be added soon together with the lifeboats. At last, I can see a small light in the end of the tunnel.

I must say, that the funnel color in the photos looks quite strange. It looks WAY too yellow. In real life it looks much much better. I'm sure it will show in the final photos.

Hello Morten,
You completed a superb work on your model. Even if I had the place at home to make such a large model, I don't know if I would have as much courage than you!
Congratulation

Kind Regards,
Christophe...

Morten,

The benches used on deck, where did you get the ends? did you scratch build those and cast them? they look very accurate. I am dreading those and the lifeboat davits!

Regards,

JJ

Thats the problem at times with artificial lighting, it can easily distort colours.

She's looking beautiful, Morten.

Ok, this is probably the last update before the model is finished.

Today the masts were added, so now the work with all the rigging has begun. As you can see, all davits on the port side has been added, and I will have the remaining ready for painting by the end of the weekend. There are only a few things remaining now before all the touch up around the model. I hope it will be done by around three maybe four weeks at least.
















Here you can see how I made the masts. I have been wondering a long time about how to make them. I had been wondering about how to turn them since they are so thin in the ends. I thought about turning some of the masts and then take a styrene rod or something and place on top and then sand or file it to shape. But at work, I came over some paint brushes that had the perfect shape! I bought a few, and when home, I cutted two of them and had them in my electric drill. I then sanded them to shape by using sandpaper on the table and drilling them over the paper. These were then added as extensions to the other brushes, and I think they came out quite good.







- Morten

William -

Those who make the brushes are called Jordan and is the largest supplier of painting tools here in Norway. But most brushes have this shape, so I do not thing you will have a hard time finding some.

Hi Morten,

Your model is certainly one of most beautiful and realistic.
It will be the first to the 1.144 scale to have the valves in the good area.

Thank you for your pics, which pleasure of seeing your work.

Best TRMA....

Kind Regards.

Morten , You're Titanic in 1:144th. is just breath-taking!. On my 1:144th. Lusitania I made the masts out of thin wall Brass tubing. I cut the tops of them lengthwise for about 5 inches down and folded the two halves in on each other and then soldered them together and sanded them smooth , so that they would taper at the top. I made them this way so they would not bend or snap with the pressure of the Marconi wireless wires pulling on them. In short it worked , and then I painted them brown and Epoxied a square block of pine under the decks that I drilled into to anchor the masts in and epoxied the masts in the holes.
Sincerely,
Bill Young

As I said, this is most likely the last update, so I do not think so. The model is finished in two or three weeks, so I guess you will have yo wait

Thank you Aaron, and all your others as well. It is always nice to get such comments. Too bad I have to send it away in a few weeks. But that's life... I have already started research and planning for a new project, and I hope it will be at least as good. I'll come back to that in a few weeks

A while ago, Thomas asked me a couple of questions. I regularly receive such questions, so I thought I could post the answers here. I hope you donít mind, Thomas

1. How did you cut the holes for the windows on the deck walls.
The windows on B and C deck were cut by first drilling a small hole in each corner of the windows. The rest was done by first using a Dremel for milling and a file for the finish. Actually, when I gott he rythm, the process of milling all of the windows did not take a lot of time. From I received the hull in the mail to all windows, portholes, bilge keels, rudder and everything was done ready for priming took about six or seven days.

2. What plans did you use?
Hahnís 144 plans of course, Bruceís deck plans, Artís rigging plan and some in Peterís book.

3. Did you use Peter's book as a guide?
Yes indeed! And TTSM both wolumes are a mush have.

4. What are you using for Rigging wire?
Fishing line and monofilament thread in different sizes. Artís rigging reference tell you what to use where.

- Morten

I have promised to post a photo or two of the latest progress, but I have just been too busy with things to post them. I did not actually plan to post more photos before it is finished in a week or so, but after several questions I guess I can post some last photos here.

As you can see, the model is quite close to being finished now. Quite much has been done since these photos were taken three days ago. Almost all the rigging is added, including the Marconi wire. The names have been added, and the signs will be printed one of the coming days. The signs, flags, whistles, some steam valves, ladders, stanchions and some other small things is mainly what are remaining. And all the touch ups around the model of course.











The names were printed by a friend in Denmark, and he canít print yellow that well by some reason. So what I did was that I had him print just the black area around the names themselves. I painted the area where the decals were to be placed in the color of the names and laid the decals over. The names stands out perfect, and the declas are not even visible.

the more and more I look at your model, The bigger and bigger the pool of drool gets. Keep up the good work.

Rating:
* * * * * * * * * / * * * * * * * * * * 9/10
Why 9/10 when this model is so good? Because it is not finished and like all the unfinished jaw droppers I hope that it would add to the ever burning fire to finish it for the tenth star

Can't wait to add the tenth star so keep on trucking as I am truly looking forward to seeing the finished model and adding that nice and sweet tenth star.

Ice is great for drinks but not for ships to run over or for us to step on. Please check out my home site! The BTRA! check my profile for it.

I don't know if I believe it yet, but today the model was finished! It's almot a bit surreal to me, but after 14 months working on it every single day it is finally finished. I will post photos of the finished model in a new topic during the week.

Ah, I see... The signs were printed by a friend of mine. There are some decals that has not been added, but thet was ok for the owner. The names were printed in denmark some time ago. The flags were painted by han, as the flags on the lifeboats. I must say I am really satisfied with the result of the flags. They were painted on thin foil and then bended to shape after added to the model. You'll see how it looks in a few days.

Regards,

- Morten

Incredible! She could be mistaken for the real thing! How long have you been building models? What would you recommend for building material? Because i would like to build a 1/350 Oceanic III to join The White Star Fleet, and an Aquitania for Cunard.

In the second photo, I see the brown "box" against the bulkhead in the forward well deck area, directly beneath the opening for the ladder to descend from B Deck down into the well deck. I may have overlooked it in TTSM, but could someone tell me the purpose it served? Excellent work as always Morten!

Regards,
Colten

if you were going to buy this type of model, where would you get the propellers for the ship?

I really don't understand the question... But as I am the one who built this model, I got the propellers from my local hobby shop. Do a forum search, and you will find what you need.

If you want something ready-made that displays well and will also run well on an operational model, try the "Type A" propellers from Raboesch:

The bosses for the wing screws will be a bit too small in scale, but they are otherwise a very good match and of extremely high quality.

Yes, those are fine propellers and is the ones that I used on this model even though it is a display model only. They are quite expensive but I think they were worth the money spent.

not sure if that comment was for Morten or for me, but I actually have not built the model, nor purchased it. But it would not surprise me if it ends up costing about $2,000 (maybe even more). Also, were you able to negotiate a price for the hull, or did you pay the $500?
