#5070, "Morten Jensen - 1/350 Minicraft Titanic - new model - construction"


  

          

As my last personal model was finished in November, the 1/144 Queen Mary, it is very good to finally have the time to start on something new. For the last couple of months I have been renovating several models for other people and all personal projects was shelved. I concidered several model options, but as my "old" 1/350 Titanic was sold the choice felt on building a new one. And since the list of Minicraft Titanic's I have built start to get long, I wanted to do something different with this one...

Here are the first couple of photos. As you can see, I have removed the entire superstructure from the kit hull and sanded the top to smooth out the double plating. New sides have been built using sheet styrene, but in these photos only one have been fitted to the hull. The port side is cut out, but will not be added yet. Some detailing have been started, but there is a lot more remaining.

I have also done a test using rivet decals on a spare funnel, and the result was wery good. It will be nice to see the funnels fully riveted.

I see that you are working to spice things up with this model of yours. After seeing your first Titanic that I seen and your Queen Mary ship. I have high expectations of this model.

Keep going and hope to see her when she is finished.

All the Best!

During the last weeks there have not been much progress, but I have now finished the hull. Yesterday I started painting, so I hope to have the hull painted in a couple of days. I have also ordered some wood samples for the decks, so it will be interesting to see how the decks will turn out.

Hi Morten

I would be very interested on how you went about constructing the new superstructure.

Thanks, Mike

Sergei - those are the 144 Robert Hahn plans, available from his site. I think it's titanicplan.de.

The superstructure is pretty straight forward. It's all sheet styrene, and cut after being drawn. It was important to sand down the detailing on the hull to make a flush seam between the hull and the new superstructure.

The hull is now finished with decals and everything. Now I'm just waiting for the wooden decks to arrive in the mail. Meanwhile I am working on some cranes. Photos will be uploaded soon.

Hello again Morten

Sorry to be a pain but could you give a little more detail on how you constructed the superstucture. Did you use what was removed as a template? And how did you get all those windows to look all the same. Did you find that the line of the decks changed. The area around those large square windows forward of the aft well deck and the area aft of the forward well deck have been a thorn in my model building side and I am on my 5th kit as I have had a number of failed attempts and plan not to have any more. I think your procedure is the way to go as this is a weak (in my opinion) area of the model. Never looked right.

Any information on this would be greatly appreciated

Thank you, Mike

I could of course use the CAD plans to draw the new superstructure on the sheet styrene, but instead I used the existing sheer on the Minicraft hull. After removing the old superstructure I made a styrene template drawn from the Minicraft hull. That way I would get a nice fit. The template was also used to draw the top and bottom line of the windows. With two lines I gould just draw up the windows using measurements from the CAD plan. The bottom half or so of the superstructure is made up by an extra piece of styrene as this part was also thicker on the prototype herself (double riveting). The profile running along the entire lenght is a .020" styrene rod, and everything else is .010" sheet.

After finishing both sides with the detailing and all the big question popped up; how should I mask the yellow stripe? After using several brands and types of masking tape I found out that masking and airbrushing the yellow stripe would never look nice due to paint running under the tape at almost the entire length. Then I tried the water decals, but those dod not look good either. The choice then felt on the sticker type striped that I used on the previous model. (Not the one seen in these photos on the stand, as that is the one built for the Minicraft box). The result is not 100% perfect, but it was the best I could do. Note that the stripe look WAY off in color than it does in real life due to the flourecent lighting. Even the antifouling look too bright/red.

Anyway, I fell that the job done to the hull was worth the time now that it is painted. And I am still waiting for the wooden decks.

Here are a couple of photos of the painted hull:














Here you can see how much difference filling and sandinng the wing propellers does, compared to the model in the background, witch is just glued together usin no filler at all. Also notice the zink annodes on the rudder and in the opening for the centre propeller.

Outstanding job. Question, though... I've always been impressed by some modeler's abilities to cut regular rectangular openings side by side. Your model is the classic example!

Could you run down your technique?

I know it's been ages since the last update, so here are a couple of new photos. Although not much was done for weeks, the speed is now back up and much of the changes from the last update have been done during the last week.

As you can see, some decks have now been fitted. I have used the printed decks from scaledecks and I am really pleased with the look of it! Compared to this, the painted decks does not look very great.

This model will be about 80% scratch built or so, so all the bulkheads are made from scratch.

Morten,

Great work - I agree with you 100% on the scaledecks product. Really clean paint and the scratchbuilt work is much cleaner than the kit parts.
I haven't had a lot of chance to make progress with my model but the recent postings are making me think I better get moving!

Regards,

Stuart

What decks did you use from Scaledecks.

Was it the plain ones as I cant see any specific for the Titanic, also what colour did you use

Morten:

Hi!

Newbie here getting ready to start a Minicraft myself. I've been a lurker on the site for a while and finally registered today.
I LOVE the wood decking - You're doing a such beautiful job! I'm definitely going to order a set myself.

Have a question - I notice the Titanic set (at Scaledecks) now seems cutout to fit around the various molded in features of the existing Minicraft decks. Do you simply sand off the original plank lines and glue the wooden decking on top or do the Scale decks completely replace the Minicraft decks and you scratch build all the features yourself?

Charley -

I scratchbuild everything on this model. The decks are simply made out of sheet styrene. So far I have not used a single piece from the kit exept the hull (and even that is highly rebuilt). But funnels, lifeboats, vents and such will be used from the kit. Right now I have finished the three steam winched on the forecastle and they really turned out great. I will have a photo of them uploaded soon.

Thank you all for your kind words!

Regards,

- Morten

An update before I'm off to work.

As I am waiting for the rest of the scaledecks sheets to arrive in the mail, I started working on the forward end of the boat deck, including the bridge front. I have also constructed, airbrushed and added the three steamwinches on the forecastle. Each winch is made up from 27 parts and even the drums are made from scratch. That was done by filing a styrene rod while turning it in an electric drill. I am very happy with how the winches turned out. As for the bridge front, it is still not finished. When the reilings and roofs will be added, the bridge structure will look much better (I tried with some scrap styrene). Anyway, I am happy to see that the model is coming along nicely.

Thank you guys!

Brian, those are all made of .010" styrene. The hinges are made out of .010" styrene rod. It's all very simple actually. I first place the doors, add the hinges, drill the portholes and it's ready for painting.

Regards,

- Morten

Guys,

just a reminder - when you completely change the topic in a thread, please remember to change the subject header, as I've done here. You're much more likely to get responses that way. I would have been glad to join in with an explanation of how I did my doors, but because the subject remained at wood decks - which I have no involvement with - I didn't even read the posts.

Regards

You are correct. I usually don't look at the subject, I just read the post, so I tend to forget to change it. But I think we all would be very happy to hear how you did your doors!

Best regards,

I am completely envious of your winches! I've been working on drums, and thinking I should just rebuild the whole thing, and here you have done it with beautiful precision. Amazing, you must be proud and you should be. Keep it coming!

Dane - Thank you! I must sayI am very pleased with them myself. They turned out great. I recommend everyone to try and build them from scratch.

Not that much have been done since the last update. I have built a couple of smaller fittings, a couple of vents and added the poop deck. As I have just ordered more scaledecs I will use the waiting time to finish some wents and such.

As the weather is currently way too nice to sit indoors all day I am having a hard time finding time for the model. But at least something has been done!

The forward sections of the A-deck screens is now added. As I am still waiting for the scaledecks to arrive in the mail I thought I could get some progress on the front end of the ship. The Forward A deck bulwark is almost done and I hope to have that added by tomorrow if I have the time.

I have also finally attached the poop deck and a couple of vents.














Holes (to mark the centre of the vents) were drilled by using a template drawn directly from the 1/350 GA plans. I have also drilled holes for the cranes, but those are hard to see in the photo.

Hi Morten

I'm absolutely astounded at the quality of your modelling, and if I didn't know otherwise I would guess that this model was larger than 1/100 scale, such is the definition of detail in it.

While I'm not at all meaning to criticise this amazing work, I was wondering what your thoughts are about the width of the wooden railing caps on the tops of the bulwarks at the front of A and B deck, and rear along the sides of the 2nd class prom deck. It looks to me that they seem a little wide, as though the real ship's railings were almost 30cm wide.

In my much more humble 1/350 effort, for scale effect I shaved the thickness of the bulwarks down, particularly at the tops, so there was no perceivable ledge or flat horizontal surface at the top of them.

I'm only picking this detail out because your ship is approaching an incredible level of accuracy, and because it is so good, one aspect that seems to disrupt the scale effect begins to stand out.

Hats off to your superb skills.

Thanks
John H

John -

Thank you for your reply. Yes, those handrails are a bit too wide, and I guess they could have been made from 0.01" instead of 0.020" rod. But As I started with 0.020" I wanted to finish with that size instead of ripping it all off the model. If you look at Art's model you can see that he uses many of the original parts from the kit (although a bit altered) and the width of the railings look almost the same. But you are correct; those railings are not perfectly in scale

Regards,

- Morten

Morton,

I think Your work is fantastic! The deck houses are a work of art. And, the winches are real gems. Looking forward to more.

It's been ages since my last update. Although the progress has been slowed down during the summer, I have managed to get something done. The mid-section of the boat deck is now in place together with the rest of the bulkheads for the officer's deckhouse. The A deck screens is currently being painted, so they will be added soon. Also, not shown in these photos, the stanchions for the breakwaters and the windlasses are in place.

Over the next couple of weeks I hope to get a lot done. (Depends on the weather though...)

Morten,

Those decks look fantastic. It might be a while between your posts, but each time you post, the details that emerge are incredible. I think you're making great progress. I can't wait to see what comes next.

Regards .............. Matt

Thank you. I hope there will be some progress over the next couple of weeks. A lot of parts are already finished, but I have ordered some paint that I am currently waiting for.

I sure do hope that the paint will come or other wise if it does not come in for some reason with in any reasonable time... Do you know the part in the Princess Bride when the Fire Giant was the start of the part where they storm the castle? That is what they are going to get from me. They're holding up some really wonderful art and they should be ashamed of them selves for doing such a terrible thing to such a formidable and wonderful one such as thee Morten.

Hope to see this thing completed.

All the Best!

Morton,
Like Art's stunning model I am AGOG at the quality of your work,I
just do not understand HOW you achieve such clean and flawless work!.
HOW DO YOU DO IT?..1/350th isn't HUGE but it's a good scale for model
ships but your model,like Art's,have details within details and then there's more details in the details and the results are amazing.

Keep it coming!

This is just awesome. It seems more like a 1/144 scale than the 1/350. Can't wait to see this completed,

Beautiful work Morten!

Could you tell me what size/diameter stock you used to make the edges around the fantail?
I'd like to add that myself - looks great!

Thanks!
