Summary RMS Titanic has had more written about her than any other ship but, surprisingly, there is little information directed at the modelmaker. This superb book contains all the information needed to build a highly accurate model, down to the tiniest details of the hull s rivets. The work is based on the author s remarkable 18ft model, built to 1/48 scale, and specially commissioned for a travelling exhibition in North America. The book contains a mass of practical information on how to construct every part of the great liner and is equally applicable to a small static bread-and-butter display model as to a large working version.Profusely illustrated with close-up photographs, detailed drawings and a large collection of photographs of the prototype herself, the book also contains a complete set of plans considered to be the most accurate yet drawn.With this mix of practical information, rare photographs and highly detailed drawings the book can appeal to all Titanic enthusiasts as well as to ship modellers of every sort.
