#5897, "Bought 1929 Britannic Draftsman Sketch"


          

This was on EBAY, as a 1929 Britannic Drafting Drawing, before you flame me , I bought this because of my facination with Olympic and if you do take a closer look it is indeed Olympic before the 1913 Refit (note the extended opening on B deck and ofcourse the open A deck)

I call her the Olytannic

I am still waiting for this in the mail, going to look over it and such but my initial idea is to convert it to Olympic fill in the funnel tops, and shade the hull to make the line disappear.

Whats your opinion?

Complete it or leave it as the Olytannic?

Hello Oly (? don't know if this is your real name)

So if I understand you correctly, you want to change the original drawing?

Regards,
Marco Tulner

Don't touch it.

Was this drawing DONE in 1929 or is it just depicting the ship as it was in 1929 (or would have looked)? Is it Olympic or Britannic? Britannic and the 1929 date confuse me even though the hull markings lean toward Britannic. Either way, it's an original "work of art" so my opinion would be... leave it original.

You could have it copied and THEN do your alterations to the copy. Then display them side by side.

Like with anything else ... it's only original once.

Just my two cents worth .................... Matt

It sold as Britannic but as you can clearly see its Olympic

It was drawn in 1929

Ah....I get it. Still, don't alter it. It's 83 years old and original. Copy it and do your changes, but not to the original.

Once it arrives, check it for a signature. Could have been drawn by someone "famous" (or infamous).

You watch, you'll take it to a taping of "Antiques Roadshow" and it will be worth a fortune. It could be "...THE missing artwork that disappeared years ago and was never seen again"...until now.

I have an active imagination. Regards ...... Matt

I was thinking of getting it professionally scanned and printed that way I could do the proper alterations

This looks like the drawing used for Britannic's entry in "The Encyclopedia Of Ships"

Report him to eBay. They'll nail him to the wall...and then suspend his selling priviledges. That's fraud, if you ask me. They are pretty strict about stuff like this.

I know eBay has a "Dispute" section you'll need to go through but they'll probably ask you to resolve the problem amongst yourselves first.

That's a shame. I've been playing on eBay for 12 years or more and never ran into a shady deal. Shady people, perhaps...but not bogus items.

Look at it this way, you can now color in the ship anyway you like. I vote for a "psychedelic" theme. Peter Maxx, et al.

Good luck to you .... Matt

Update...

Just went to their selling page. Sure seems like they're selling them as "originals". Hmmm...3 negatives in the past month. 9 in the past 6? Sounds like they're slipping in the customer service dept. Ebay needs to be notified of them.

I did and he contacted me immediately and I told him how I felt and such and being that it was damaged I would send it back and I did so tonight.

Getting my money fully refunded

Good! What that guy is doing is just plain fraud. I'm glad you're getting the refund without a fight. So much for my "Antiques Roadshow" scenario.
