1:350 Deluxe Titanic with Photo-Etched Parts
The sinking of the Titanic on April 12, 1912 is known to the world as the one of the greatest maritime tragedies of all time. The loss of over 1.500 people who perished in the icy waters of the North Atlantic was profound, resulting in regulations mandating sufficient lifeboats for everyone on board, establishment of the International Ice Patrol and manning a ship‘s wireless station around the clock. “Safety first” became a way of life.
Many people, including members of The Titanic Historical Society, recognized the value of offering a quality large-scale model representing the Titanic. Work on the project began in the early 1970s using reference information provided by the Titanic Historical Society and blueprints supplied by Harland & Wolff, the builders of the Titanic and her sister ships Olympic and Britannic.
It was recognized that the kit designed in 1974 contained errors that could not have been anticipated until new information was brought to light. With new information available and with the contribution of many, the Minicraft Models 1/350 scale replica of the Titanic was revised to reflect new information that corrected the original design.
To date over 50 changes were made including a new Forecastle Deck, skylights, the centre anchor, porthole corrections near the bow, modification of the well decks and corrected decals and flag sheet.
Using the latest information contemporary research has made available, the Minicraft Model Kits’ 1/350 scale RMS Titanic is the only kit available that accurately represents the famous ocean liner as the ship appeared on the fateful night of April 12, 1912.
