#8762, "Titanic 1:72 - Scratchbuild - Jason King"


  

          

In 2015 my 1:100 scale Titanic model successfully crossed the Atlantic Ocean to its new owner. I have been toying with the idea to scratch build again and push limitations. There are the obvious limitations such as time & space to build this, not the enthusiasm and desire. I have built the keel plate in three sections as this Titanic is going to be 1:72 scale which would make the potential model 12ft (3.6m) in length. Maybe.....

That is going to look amazing Jason. I look forward to seeing progress on her.

An acquaintance in Australia has a 3D printing business and he offers all sorts of models. The current one he has for sale include one of the Royal Australian Navy's Armidale Class Patrol Boat, one of which was seen in season 2-5 of Sea Patrol, and he also is currently working on a 1/108 scale Olympic Class and a 1/72 scale as well, offered either as Titanic, Olympic, or Britannic. I believe that Olympic and Britannic are available in war time configuration, as well as peacetime.

Hi Jason, I am a fan of your 1:100 model, one of the best ever builted, and ad a Titanic's enthusiast I'm happy for your new project.
I hope that you'll share with us all the building progress, with exhaustive explanations of the various building techniques....
First of all: can you explain how did you get the frame's shape and which is technique to transfer them on wood plates ?
I hope you'll make a complete building reports...
Best regards.
Filippo

Filippo,

Thanks for your kind words. The half frames were scaled up from the plans I have and spray mounted on card to ensure rigidity. After they were trimmed they were drawn round on the wood, flipping it to create both sides.

Your 1:100 scale is amazing, I can't wait to see the 1/72 scale progress. Amazing talent to scratch build like that, can't wait to see what details you put in this one.

Hello Jason,
Good to hear from You. You must have wrapped your model in cotton inside a steel box to ship it with no damage. So now you are building a larger one. I will be eagerly awaiting your updates.

Hi Jason,

good to hear, that you are engaged in a new large project.
It will be a great model with all the details from your 1:100 experience and even more detailing.
I am eager to see its progress and wish you good luck for it.

Best regards,

Michael

Wow. Can't wait to see this happen. No doubt, I will be following every update. Will this model be lit? I'd imagine it would be at such a large scale. It would be amazing, regardless.

Thanks everyone for your kind words and encouragement.
I am not entirely sure if this project will ever get of the ground yet. My main issue is build and display space. 1:72 is a beast but I would really like to build it as I think it will a great test and an opportunity to include some juicy detail including many discoveries that contributors to this site have found and studied over the years. I will see how things go. At this stage I will probably build the hull and plate it which in itself will take a long time. I hope during this time the project will gain momentum and become a reality. In the meantime I will happily post progress photos for people to hopefully enjoy and maybe inspire.
Thanks

Jason

Hi Jason,

The work you put into the 1:100 build was absolutely fantastic, beautiful workmanship. The idea building a 1:72 is incredible! (I thought 1:100 is big!) I cant wait to see the progress.

Matt Dew

Jason,

It is a great work that lies ahead. I will closely monitor the stages of construction.

It's amazing your scale model 1/100.

Fantastic work...
I envy your possibility to work at 1:72 scale: in my apartment that kind of construction is not possible to do, due to the normal room's dimensions...
You'll have enormous possibilities for superdetailing your model...
I'll be your shadow...
Cheers.

Hi all,

Jason, all the best for your project. Simply incredible.
No doubt that for next months we'll see a great work!!!

Just a question: are you intentioned to place some 1/72 crew-passengers on board?

Best wishes and kind regards

Livio

Fantastic Jason.

It'll be great to see this one come to life. Already - it's taking on that unmistakable, beautifully proportioned shape.

What lead you to decide on 1/72? How does that compare with 1/100 as far as scaling down measurements off plans? I suppose if you had plans in metric, 1/100 would have made that aspect of it easier.

May I suggest that you contact the Titanic museum in Belfast - let them know that you're building another one, even larger - surely they'd be interested. I'm hoping this one will be on public display in the UK, and where better than there.

All the best, very much looking forward to it,
John H

Hi Jason,
I can't imagine how you can handle a huge model as that one...
Anyway, I look in advance for more progresses, and knowing your capabilities, I'm sure it will be a masterpiece...

Looking great Jason King! Is that MDF board you're using for the framework?

Final dry fit of the completed MDF frames & keel segments. Hull planking next and this will sit on the recessed edges fitted on the frames making it a box section and very strong. Its a monster 12ft and its putting on weight.

Hi Jason, wonderful work....
I wonder if you would share with us the shape of the frames and the keel drawing with position of frames slots for possible future's models....
Anyway, you have my respect...

First stage hull construction, dry fitting the three sections that give a length of 12ft. 3mm MDF between the frames which have been filled & sanded with first coat of primer applied. Hull planking to complete around the prow & stern and then more filling and sanding to remove all the blemishes. The wing prop shafts after that then the fitting of the sections together for finishing before the long process of hull plating. A winter job.

You're amazing. Looks great. Are you going to retain the two construction breaks for transport?

Nick,

No it will all be fitted together when the plating starts. The three sections make it easier to build at this stage as it is 12ft long.

Hi, Jason. Your new 1:72 titanic model is simply amazing and also very accurate. Please, can you post a photo of the stern that shows the stern of your model WITHOUT white primer (color). I would really like to now how did you do planking of stern, and I would like to see frames of stern.

Plating has commenced and I will update some images here when she is at a more advanced stage.

For those who do the 'social media' thing I recently started a FB page which is a kinda build blog for this model as well as images of my previous scratchbuilt models.

Hi Jason,

although I am not registered at Facebook I have read your building blog with great interest. It is good to see that there is still some activity regards Titanic/ocean liner model building.

Your Forecastle evolution from 23rd September looks very good with the lighter original yellow/pitch pine decks on the later models. It would be helpful to have color photos of old pine decks, but today the decks of ships are mainly teak, not pine, and that planted, fast grown teak, I suppose, is not of the teak quality used 100 years ago.

So it is hard to decide for the right pine deck color, for me, the consensus also seems to opt for lighter shades (although I would like it a bit darker, if somebody would have evidence for that).

Best regards,

Michael

I have been plating the double bottom for the last few weeks, using 0.38mm styrene so the plate thickness is to scale. After a bit of tidying the next job will be the stem bar followed by bildge plates and stern frame detail. Then the model can be turned for side plating to commence.

Hi Jason,
good start for planking work....
One question: itr seems to me that the keel bar is shorter than how it would be: look at these drawings and photos:












I think you can easily repair....

Hi,

I cant see the images you posted and my last post photos are also unavailable for some reason.
Anyway without the photos, the keel bar on the model stops in the same location as shown on Bob Reads plans of the double bottom (Below - Bob Read CAD plans). It seems the keel bar ends aft while still flat and not angled up slightly as the angled part is the stern casting. I may be wrong and will hope someone can confirm where the keel terminates aft so i can make any adjustments if necessary.

Regards
Jason

Hi Jason,
I don't know the reason why my photos and drawings are not visible, as the your ones...
Anyway, if you look at the only one photo that is visible, you can clearly see the keel bar and consequently obtain the end position of the keel bar....
In the next days I'll retry to post photos and drawings....
Cheers.

Its does look like the keel bar but sometimes photos can be deceptive and looking at other images i think it is the way the plating is attached to the stern frame.
If you look at the stern frame castings before they are installed they extend a distant forward and you think why would you have a keel bar under the casting? Plenty of time at this stage to clarify i will check more.

Plating is coming along. Completed port side up to strake 'T' and starboard side is nearly at the same point. A lot of plating done and loads more to come. This is a monster! The stern plating will be next then the riveting fun begins!
