HI Wills

What Tammy says is true, you will find it much more gratifying if you manage to find the time to finish the model, But after saying that I would be only to pleased to finish it for you.

Oh, you would? Please do tell me how we can accomplish this? Would I have to also purchase more metal GMM parts for it, to give it a more museum quality look; such as not only railings, but davits, crains, ladders, etc.? And then the other photo-etched metal parts, such that part that fits on the prow (remember that "I'm flying!!!" scene w/Kate & Leo?); foremast & main masts (I hate those flimsy plastic masts that come with the kit itself); Marconi aerial trees, which rig the 4 aerial lines between the two masts; compass tower between the 2nd & 3rd funnels; pulleys for the rigging lines, etc.?

I know that all those extra parts offered are (C) of the TITANIC Modelling Assn. website.

Anyway, when you see my baby, you may have to also re-align the portside bridge wing house, so that it will look as level as the starboard side. For that matter, you may have to completely redo her promenade & boat decks. Trim off her boat deck stairwell roofs, b/c there aren't roofs atop of them.

The black thread used as the funnel lines, are from my late grandmother's sewing kit, she used for rugs. They may be as old as Titanic herself.emoticon

Anyhoo, how can I get her to you in one piece, in the Academy Model kit box she came in?

Hi Tammy and Wills

I would be only too pleased to finish it for you both, Yes the added parts are a lot better in quality and the eye than the original plastic bits.

It als like Tammy says gives it a more museum look and finish.

Re: a new titanic model.


Metal parts are much better than the plastic, that's for sure. I wish that GMM would also come out with the funnel pipes, b/c with the 3rd funnel. When I tried to bend it as prescribed, in hot water, it broke. While one end is glued to the 3rd funnel, the other end, you see--fits into the holes seen on the roof of the 2nd-Class staircase. Then there are there is another vent to also go on that same roof, and then a railing.

I also took notice on the TITANIC Modelling Assn. site that one can buy the (there may be A/B-deck walls, too) promenade deck outter walls that are metal photo-etched parts. These walls extend up to the boat deck.

Am I correct on this, Graham?

Not really. She's still sitting on the same spot she was then, and is now, and sadly collecting dust.emoticonemoticon Sowwy.
