My Titanic Model

The following are pictures of my radio controlled Titanic model. The model is 10 feet long and 2.5 feet tall. That puts it at 1:88th scale! I based the design off of Harland and Wolff's original blueprints, and it took me over 2 years to build... Enjoy!

Me and the ship.

This pic gives an idea of the size.
I'm 6ft and the ship is 10ft.

View of the completed model with rigging.

Decided to show it off at work.
Here it is sitting on top the vending machines in the break room.

Finally, Launch Day! It floats!
Unfortunately, it was too windy to let it sail... I will try again soon...


Unfortunately, I live in an area where there is a lot of wind, and scheduling sailing days is difficult. Eventually, the perfect day will come along, but until that time the ship can wait...

I hope you enjoyed the pictures. I will post more soon!
