#9345, "Art's model website"


  

          

My 1:350 Minicraft Titanic is finally complete. It can be seen at

www.titanicmodel.net

Thanks to everyone who's shown such interest in this model and waited so patiently for its completion!

So that everyone can get their questions answered as they come up (and I'm sure there will be more than a few), I do have a request: please reply to this thread for general comments only. If you have a specific modeling-related question, please post it on the main forum.

Thanks

Art,

I am speechless Art, I've been waiting for your website since you announced finishing it, gotta tell you it is first class, a real divider from what we were used to. Sites like the rivet-counter.com have an amazing amount of information, but unfortunately, they got stuck in the 90's, yours bring Titanic back to today.

Congratulations and thank you for dedicating your time in order to build not only an amazing replica but also sharing with the community!

Your website will be the new reference for many modelers to come.

Kindest Regards,

Zeno Silva
Hollywood, FL

It is fantastic. It was a pleasure to see the day time photos of the ship as well.

However the link to the evening shots does not work. I don't know if it's just me or not. I am using Google Chrome, as the site mentions.

Looking at the close-up shots, it's hard to believe that it's only 1/350 scale. The detail is extraordinary. An amazing achievement!

#9395, "RE: Note on portable phone boxes"
In response to Reply # 0
Sun Mar-19-17 10:34 AMby Art Braunschweiger

  

          

A post was made on Facebook regarding the accuracy of the phone box at the bows. Here is an explanatory note I added to the Fine Details page, below the photo showing this phone box near the anchor crane:

Note: the portable phone box just to the left of the anchor crane has two swing-out doors (see the image at the top of this page). It was constructed based on an early Olympic photo. Sometime after this, an enlargement of a Titanic photo at Queenstown revealed that Titanic's phone box on the docking bridge had a single door. Based on this, the phone at the bows may have had a single door also. I could have built a new one to replace it, but it was so well made that I elected to leave it as is. The other two phone boxes on the model - on the docking bridge and in the crow's nest - were built later and each have single doors. )

I also added this to the short list of details that are correct for Olympic but not Titanic on the page "Achieving Historical Accuracy."

As Jonathan Smith noted, this model was started in 2003, and we know many things now that we didn't then. Some fittings like the phone box I made years ago even though they might have only been added near the end of the build. Many things I corrected as new information came to light. (I kidded Bob Read that he was trying to drive me crazy every time he discovered a change to one of the vents.) And I don't claim to be perfect; with thousands of corrections to note on my plans, I might have missed something along the way. I welcome anyone asking about something they see, and anything I know of that's not correct I've made a point of noting on the page "Achieving Historical Accuracy".

#9413, "New article added"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I started adding the figures to the model today. (And for the ones now standing at the forward end of A-Deck under the Bridge, I was very glad I left the stanchions off until now!) This reminded me that some modelers might like more information on that aspect of modeling, so there is a new link near the end of the page called "Detailing and Painting the GMM Ocean Liner Figures". It's an updated and expanded version of the article by the same name that appears here in the TRMA Reference Library.

Greetings -

When the website was launched, Dave Abate said he'd like to see some photographs that show more of the model overall - that is, photos that show the the model as a model and not a real ship. I finally got around to adding them today after moving the display case to a different location in the room and improving the lighting over it. There are four at the end of the Finished Models page (including a much better one of me).

http://www.titanicmodel.net/day.html

Specs on the lamp used to illuminate the model can be found at the top of the Water Surface page. It's available through Amazon.com.

Many of the photos can now be viewed in a larger format. If you see the symbol below at the upper left corner of an image, you can click on it and it will open it in a larger lightbox format. (You can also click directly on the image to enlarge it.) How much larger each image displays will depend on your browser settings, screen size and screen resolution.



In June there will be a lot more photos added when the page of evening photos is added.

Greetings -

the page is now up showing the model illuminated at sunset and after dark. It was scheduled for launch in June but I've completed all the photos earlier than expected. It can be accessed off the main page at www.titanicmodel.net

Also, for serious photographers, the page "Photographing the Model" has also been updated with information about the new photos added. Also added to this page is a photo showing how the water surface of the model's base was extended out toward the horizon for most of the shots. And for anyone who is interested in the swing-arm lamp used to illuminate the finished model, I've added that to the Water Surface page.
