#8390, "Paulo's 1/700 Revell Titanic build"


          

Hi everyone. It's been 4 years since i last posted anything here. I am right now building the 1/700 Revell kit, with a lot of alterations, enhancements, and some scratchbuilding. I also have the Tom's 1/700 Olympic Class rails and details PE sets for this model.

The kit is nicely molded, but still has some accuracy issues. I decided to leave out other details because of the scale of this kit. Any questions and comments regarding my model are welcome.































the deckhouse walls did not have rails and lights, so i made use of styrene rod and pulled sprue for them.





Regards,
Paulo Cerezo

Very nice build at this small scale!
Great, clean paintwork!
A pity we could not follow your fine build from the beginning.

Cheers!

Paulo

Welcome back to TRMA. Outstanding work in small scale. Colors are spot on. Can you post a photo with a coin, jar of paint or some object next to your build to give us an idea of how small this kit is? Look forward to seeing your progress.

Couldn't agree more what's said above..and like I told you on another site, I like your paint work. Are you planning to paint the elevator house ?

Amazing that this can be done with such a small scale!

I decided not to use the kit's sirocco vents since they're inaccurate, so i scratchbuilt ALL of them, using stryene rod, styrene sheets, and CA glue. i also hollowed out the cowls with a .6mm drill bit.













here can be seen the kit's inaccurate vents, and some of the ones i have scratchbuilt



I am also correcting most of the locations of the vents and am using putty to form their concrete bases.



I got all the information i needed for corrections from the rivetcounter website.

Paulo,

Looking at the first set of photos you posted.....I'd swear that was a much larger kit. And then you go and post the next set with your knife as the "point of reference" .......and I'm completely blown away!

I am doing vents at 1/350 scale, which is trying my patience.....and yours are half the size. Good Lord, you must have a steady hand and a HUGE magnifying glass. I don't think I've seen this scale kit done so perfectly.

Well done. I, and everyone else, look forward to more progress photos.

Regards,

Matt

Matt,

First, I wanna commend you for your work on your 1/350. Amazing attention on the details!

And no, i am not using a magnifying glass, my technique is to do things under natural light- it shows you every flaw, surface texture, even the smallest scratches on your paintwork, and three LED lamps at night to mimic daylight. And maybe i also have good eyesight? XD

I am just figuring things out as i go with this model, and i try my best to achieve accuracy. It just bugs me a lot that i got the forward A Deck wrong, and i forgot to put the stairs on the forward part of B Deck. They're not noticeable at this scale, but they still annoy me to the point that i wanna remove the heavily cemented boat deck and A deck on my model (which is a very risky thing to do). Maybe I'll do another Titanic model in the future, a 1/350 perhaps?


Regards,
Paulo

Paulo, may i ask about your modeling history ? Basically, how many models you've done before this. Looking very good..

Sauli,

i had built a 1/400 Academy Titanic in mid-2010, but i disassembled it in 2012 because it toppled and got very dusty. I also tried to convert a 1/570 Titanic kit to Britannic but stopped the job in mid-2011 because I was gonna start college that year. I have no plans to continue this conversion yet. So this 1/700 kit is my third Titanic kit and second Titanic model.

the 1/570 Britannic conversion- only the hull was converted.

I kinda feel bad as this current build serves as a practice build, because i am still figuring out how to properly do things like airbrushing, scratchbuilding, handling photoetch, etc. I will be building the 1/700 Revell RMS Olympic right after this one and I will be applying everything i have learned from building this Titanic kit.

More photos of the scratchbuilt cowl vents. Will be painting them white once they're evenly primed. And i will probably work on the funnels or PE rails next.

More progress photos. Added the stanchions on the splashguard- this all took about an hour to do, because the rods have to be dry fitted and cut to the right size- the longest rod is shorter than 1.5 mm. Concealed the glossy CA glue on the deck by drybrushing deck colored paint around the joint.








I am also done doing the PE stairs, and am near to attaching the PE rails from midship out.

UPDATE:

Door mats glued into place, added the triangular supports on the No. 1 hatch, glued the mushroom vents on the forward well deck, and also added the doors and that pipe, too.

Man.....that is some really CLEAN paintwork you're doing there. I envy your eyesight. Once I hit the magic age of 40, everything started wearing out on me. I have to use a 7X visor to help me along. The magnifying power might be overkill, but it doesn't hurt either.

Everything you've done so far looks fantastic. Keep at it.

Thank you for your compliment about my build. I really appreciate it. I should have an update later today......not that it will show the kind of progress YOU'VE made.

Regards,

Matt

UPDATE:

almost totally "accurized" the no. 1 hatch.






finished installing the docking bridge's support posts.











that 'X' is from the PE set- trimmed from the PE posts and CA'd onto the rods. The posts do look out of scale, but this is 1/700! those rods are less than .4mm in diameter.



the default placement of the lifeboats on the kit's boat deck is too inboard, leaving very little room between the boats and the raised roof below funnel 4. So i decided to fill in the recess on the deck with v-groove sheet styrene and have the boats and davits near the edge of the ship. This was very hard to do as i had to avoid damaging the raised plank lines and scratching the paint while levelling the styrene with a chisel and sandpaper.





and in case you are wondering, my rigging material is HAIR. Werid, yes, but i think it's the best material for rigging at this scale.


little progress here after last week's updates.

Paulo, great job so far! If you said it was a 1/350 I would believe you! Amazing work! Gus

UPDATE:

Installed the screws, and improved the pipes on the funnels. Notice the angled lower areas of the pipes forward of the funnels.









I have also installed half of the vents. Installed the PE ladders on some of the deckhouses as well, although Tom's set doesnt have enough ladders to include the cranes.... and i believe some of the long ladders on the fret were meant for the masts.... oh well.

I think i wouldn't be able to work on this model for a while (by this i mean like several weeks to several months), though.....

In response to Reply # 17


          

UPDATE

Correcting the davits because they are cast in the wrong shape. I simply separated the boats from the davits, then separated the kit's davits, cut off some sections, glued the arms back together, added two triangular pieces on the arms, and base and side plates of the mechanism (sorry, i don't know the proper terms).





They still need some refinement, though. I also plan to print decals of the lifeboat ropes.

got to fix what has annoyed me since the start of this build: the wrong plating around the anchors.

Revell got many things right this time with this kit, and at the same time overlooked other details, such as the plating around the anchor.



some cut styrene sheet and putty and repainting and topcoat fixed everything.

Paulo. As I'm about to receive this same kit as a birthday present, I've watched your model, and it's kind of a inspiration for me cause because of this, I know it's possible to make a fine model out of such a small scale. Waiting new updates from you!
