#4859, "Jelte Lichtenberg 1:400 Revell Titanic"


          

Hello to all,

Been here before with a QM2 model but that was a long time ago, so for now a quick introduction.

Started my moddeling with a 1:570 titanic with lightning (simple job) followed by a 1:400 QM2. Also i'm from the netherlands and 22 years young so there will be a few/lot incorrect words and grammer.

Yesterday i bought this model (100 Year anniversary edition which come with cool extras from the titanic museum germany) and i would like to make this model as real as possible. So the following questions i would like to ask:

To make it far more realistic, is it neccesary to invest in a PE set from for example Toms moddeling?
Which parts do i need to replace?, (i have no experience with scratch)
I'm also gonna light this model, but are the funnels also lighted at the outside from beneath?

I will start tomorrow, and since i have 3 weaks holiday and not going on a trip i will work my ass off

As i said i started today with the titanic, did not that much. Drilled a bunch of holes where the lights will get true. Also created a solution for a led bar/holder and find a nice solution but see for yourself.

Toke a few shots at night, I'm not sure this is the kind of light i want to use.










Forget about the red light... I don't now where it came from. but it's not used Also note this is quick taken shot to see if it looks nice, at the stern and back will also be lights.. more to see tomorrow. (night)

The strange lightning maybe affected because i used a magazine to cover the lights from above and the gaps at the bottom because it's not glued together. the lightning at the bottom is a reflection.

Hello, this is what makes me want pictures of Titanic when she was on the high seas at night. I like the idea of only drilling out some of the port holes; as it has been discussed that obviously not all of her portholes were lit at night. However, I believe it to be part of your problem. Also, I think the light is to yellow. And may I suggest that you paint the hull before you make any further decisions as per the lights, I have seen the hull being painted making all the diffrerence in the apperance of the lighting job.

Hi all,

Today i cut out the roof above the grand staircases. also cleaned some parts from 'leaks'? during productions. I've also noticed that this kit contains a lot of bad fittings shown below.

This doesn't look nice



That's better



First i drilled a hole of 2mm after that i used a figuresaw.



After some grinding and cutting.



Also placed some parts on the front and poop deck.





Please let me know if the images are shown correctly. I used Picasa for the first time.
