Hello everyone. It has been forever and a day sense my last post here. I hope everyone is doing well. This is just a quick post to announce the availability of my 1/144 scale RMS CARPATHIA semi kit. This kit will be much like the 1/144 TITANIC semi kit as they will be made to order and made from the very same materials. A one piece epoxy fiberglass detailed hull and a resin detail set. I have spent a great deal of time and effort to hopefully bring to life a quality representation of this hero of the TITANIC story. I will keep this short as I'm sure there will be many questions asked soon. Here she is.

Colin, The cost of this kit will be set at $650.00 USD Plus shipping. That would include the one piece detailed epoxy fiberglass hull, a 300 piece detail resin set, and a full size general arrangement hull profile lines plan sheet.

This 1/144 CARPATHIA measures in at approximately 46 inches long and 5 inches wide. This kit can be built as a static display or can be built for RC. This model took the better part of a year to construct and in that year every effort was made to insure that it stayed true and accurate to what little is known about it. As many know there are no known builders blueprints of this ship to be found anywhere.
There were many points of reference I did use for this model. The CARPATHIA builders model at the Segedunum Roman Museum in England, A hundred period photo's, A copy of a passenger deck plan brochure, other artists renderings, paintings and drawings.
I could never say that this model is 100% true accurate to history but do feel that it is a very close and good one.
