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.

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.

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
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.
