Eaglemoss Titanic (wooden!)

Postby conqueror060 » Thu Feb 11, 2021 4:09 am

A new wooden Titanic partwork. As I can see at the pictures, high quality laser cut plywood (fortunately not MDF) and optional lighting kit.

The parts list says the frame parts are MDF. I wonder who is producing this as it looks different to the Amati kit.
Cheers

I really wanted to build the Titanic but I tried the hachette one a few years back and the instructions were shocking and the quality wasn't great. Was hoping for a die-cast version like the Bismark, think I'll give this a miss

If I was going to build the Titanic it would be the 1:200 Titanic version by Trumpeter for £400 with LEDs. There's a detail up kit too for the adventurous
stash: Renault TN6 C2 Parisian Bus, E Type Jaguar, Porsche Carrera
under construction: Ford GT40, Ford Mustang, Shelby Cobra

Oh s...t, nice catch Mark, so the parts picture wasnt so accurate... This is a reason I will pass it... I can't understand why companies insist on using this dangerous material, especially for models where sanding and cutting is extensive...

Yea this needed the same construction as the Bismark, I don't do well with wood.

hmmm.... interesting!
yeah, this definitely isnt the Amati offering! and with MDF frames that is definitely a turn-off! at least the planks are wood (probably lime)... but as Mark says, If youre going to build a large scale titanic you may as well build the Trumpeter version as it's bigger and got more detail so for them to say 'most accurate model ever' is not entirely true...
Cheers,
Tom.

plus the goos thing witht he trumpeter model is it's got a plastic hull offering more detail and accuracy without all the unnecessary work involved!
