#5, "Morten Jensen, Titanic Minicraft 1/350"


  

          

I started building this model in June, 2006, and it was finished September 26th.

I would say this model is 30-40% scratch built, consisting of over 1100 parts. The decks are made out of wooden veneer, (beech), where the veneer is glued over the original decks. All windows are PE, with acetate in them to simulate glass. I have used most of the PE-sets available, which have given the model a really nice look. The rigging is made out of monofilament thread, bought in a local shop here in town. It was painted grey after it was added. The yellow stripe is a 1 millimetre wide yellow sticker witch I think works better than paint. Most of the paints used are Humbrol enamel mentioned in the paint-reference.

Many thanks to all who have helped me with material and comments during the progress! It would not have looked this great without the help I have got!

Any questions or comments? Please feel free to ask me in the forum.

After seeing every photo on every model on 1/350 scale, I thought that such small scale wouldn´t let you show the magnificience of the ship, this is the first model that proves i was wrong...

Quite excellent work!!!!!

I've looked at the pictures in this thread numerous times now. Each time I am more amazed. Each time I view them, there is some little detail I hadn't noticed before. You sure have the artistic talent. I can barely draw a stick figure. What tools do you use to achieve such fine workmanship?

Thank you guys! I can't tell how much I appreciate to get such fine compliments after several months working with that thing!

The tools I used was mostly basic tools like different tweezers, files, several types of blades for my exacto's, sanding paper, a drill and so on... Not any special tools that costs a fortune. It's another story about my current project! I could not have get the frames for my 144 that nice without my band-saw! It's nice to be working in a larger scale after the 350. And the season for modelling is in for full here now. The first snow came this tuesday...

Together with my 144 wreck, witch will be finished during this winter sometime, the 350 and the QM2 will be displayed on a big model-meeting next fall. Finally I can show them public!

Best regards,

- Morten

Where are you from, Morten? I wonder since Morten is usually either a Danish or Norwegian name (like mine).

That one is a very nicely detailed model. One question... What did you use for the decking planks? Oak wood or Balsa? The both of the woods look a lot alike so that is why I ask the question.

For the decks I used beech. The veneer was laid over the original decks, mostly in one piece. Not planked. The pores in the wood is pointing forward so they might look like planking. The final effect is quite good. I would use the same sort of wood again.

Thanks again. As I have said too many times before, it's too bad that one can not see al the models withought having to search for them. When a new member enters the modelforum, he or she does only know about the models listed at the moment.

That is an excellent model, Morten. Are you building any other ships of the Olympic class?

Philip -

As you might know, I have built two Britannic wrecks, and I have a 1/600 Olympic model of her in her late career. You can search for it in this forum. The next Olympic class I will do will be a 1/350 Olympic. Right now I am building my new QM2, and I also have to finish my 1/144 Titanic wreck.

Regards,

- Morten

Morten,

Your 1/350 Titanic is a benchmark of quality, and inspired me to order a deluxe minicraft kit for my own.

May I ask, what are your thoughts on the hull plating of this model? From photographs and kits in other scales I see that the 1/350 kit hull plating is too pronounced. My solution so far has been to begin sanding the hull. Its going well but its just a tad tricky to make the plating and detail depth even. I'll try to get some pictures available once I'm satisfied with my progress.

I was also wondering what you might have learned about matching the white paint on the hull with white paint on the superstructure? There's always that little shade of difference on this kit because of the plastic colors. I am considering using an off-white color for scale, but also as a way to add pigment and more easily cover the black hull.

But really, you've got one heck of a great model here, and I can see you had to walk a fine line between the limits of the kit and the prototype, quite impressive work.

PS, if I had to pick my very favourite scratchbuilt feature you added, it would be the individual "stick" reinforcements on the foredeck breakwater and other areas, I've only seen that on 1/144 replicas.

Your work is quite motivating as I move ahead with my projcet.

Regards,

Justin

Justin -

Thank you for your comments.

The hull plates on this model are of course as we know way out of scale. I know this, but I did not want to start sanding them down or re-plate the hull. I will be more accurate on a larger model. I'm hoping for some photos of your hull.

As you say, off-white or something like that would be more correct with scale effect in mind. If you read through Art's paint guide, you'll see that a hint of black or grey in the white color gives a darker color, witch gives a better scale effect and over all appearance. I did not do this since I do not use an airbrush.

Good luck with your model!

Regards,

- Morten

Thanks!

I put some preliminary pictures of my hull on the forum, it's still quite rough because I'm trying to erode as much plastic as possible and it needs some fine grit action now.

Presently I am considering two other aesthetic properties of Titanic / Olympic from period photographs:

1) Railings (mostly foredeck and poop deck) are almost invisible in most pictures, yet highly visible on everyone's model. I wonder if there's a particular way to prepare photo etch so it is less visible.

2) Scale effect of shadows. In an attempt to firm up a classic visual queue of the prototype, I am considering using black or dark grey paint on some interior spaces to add contrast and "shadow effect". Some models have high quality paintwork in these areas which looks out of scale in display lighting. For example, the stark black window spaces in contrast with the white upper deck hull.

My recent trip to the hardware store means new project pictures will be available soon!

Regards,

Justin

Thank you. I must admit, that after a couple of years building both the 1/144 Titanic and the 1/144 Queen Mary, going back to the 1/350 scale is a challenge. This model was sold a couple of months ago and I have just started a new one.

Regards,

- Morten
