Cool Okay, Everyone! Now that I've spent a little over 2 years building the PL Enterprise and Scratchbuild Drydock, It's time to take it a little more easy and do just a plain ol' kit model. For my next project I'm building the MiniCraft Delux 1/350 scale Titanic model at the request of my wife's cousin's daughter Lexi. This model has a few extra features than the original release of the model. the only thing I will be adding to this model as a personal touch is the lighting of the decks. Fortunately with James Cameron's release of the movie Titanic I will have some good reference material for all of the lights (...er most of them) In the first update, I've already begun painting the hull. The top section, of course is white, then I painted the mid-section Flat Black and the Lower section Terra Cotta or a Rust color and then rather than using the gold stripe decals provided with the kit, I have airbrushed that on and it looks sharp. I'll be adding the decals soon and spraying that over with a Dulcote to protect them. I've also started painting the Decking Wood Tan and then dulled them with the Dulcote as well All of the decks are very thin so they need to be opaqued and then resprayed with Flat White so that the paint can help reflect the lighting. I've opaqued the walls for the upper cabins and re-sprayed them flat white. The tricky part is where to add the lighting so that the LEDs are not visible throught the portholes and other windows, so I have to take extra time and piece the decks together slowly and make sure everything looks good. I have to say that I'm actually having fun with this model, so far, because I don't have to manufacture any parts. What a refreshing change from the "Drydock". I'll have more updates, soon! Keep checking!

pirat In this week's update, I've added 8 new pics on "RMS Titanic" page starting on page 1 slide 12. Right now, I'm working on the wiring for the Lower Hull and the largest main deck. So, far there are over 20 LEDs in this part of the model. I should have some lighting tests within a week or so. I need to go pick up an AC adapter to run the lighting effects. After that I can finish connecting the wiring and make sure everything works before I permanently seal everything in place. There is also a very time-consuming task to do with this model and that is that many of the window frames need to be painted then cleaned. With the model being lit this will be an important detail to follow. Keep checking for updates!

pirat For this update on the Titanic page, starting on page 2 slide 8 I've begun assembling the decks to the hull and I have some good lighting test pics. I've also started painting many of the tinier details such as the vents, benches and some of the stairways. I've also painted the four funnels the wonderful White Star Buff color using the formula given in the assembly instruction. It seems to have turned out as it should. Let me know what you think of the color. In the next updates I'll have finished more of the upper decks. See you then.

Cool For my "TITANIC" model update this week, I've been working on some of the other painting and assembly details, while some of the deck assemblies are drying. I've added the details to the fore deck and aft deck and have begun the wiring of the boat deck. I'll have more of the upper tank room and 2nd class entrance. I should have the wiring done for all of these areas by the next update, then I can issemble all of the smaller pieces together. More pics to come soon!

Cool In Titanic's update this week I've added 10 new photos of progress to this date. Most of the ship is now assembled and all of the lighting is working. Next I'll be adding on all of the laser etched railings and start all of the remaining rigging for the funnels and wireless cables as well as the lifeboat rigging. It's getting close to being finished. Keep checking for updates.

Cool I've added 23 new pics in the photo galery since the last update. I've also added some other pics that for one reason or another disappeared from the album, but have now been re-added. All of the rigging is now finished and I have the model firmly fixed to the display stand. All I have to do now is build a display box for the ship then add a switch for the lighting effect and she is ready to swim.... then sink.... More updates in a few days. I would like some help if you don't mind deciding what my next upcoming kit model will be. If you wouldn't mind checking the future projects album in the photo section and give me some ideas for which model you think I should start on next. Thanks for the help! See you next update.
