I've been wanting a model of the Titanic for years, and since this is the 100th anniversary of the tragedy what better time to buy. The model itself is hightly detailed even down to the thread to be used for ropes/wires, and the various decks tell you what each room or section was used for on the real thing. Many of the parts are very fragile however and will require careful removal if you're not to damage them. Many hours of patient assembly is required, but once painted and completed, this makes a fine display.

Adding the paints (by Humbrol), glue and brushes in with the kit is a real bonus.

It is many years since I last constructed an Airfix model. With the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic I saw the model and thought I should like to make it,and see how kits have come on over the years.
Well the price has certainly progressed but I do not feel that you could say the same for the product, if anything I would say that the construction of parts is not as good as in years gone by. The individual parts on plastic frames were so thin and britle that a number of them broke when trying to cut them from spruce, even with a new very sharp knife.Parts didnot fit without trimming and bending, the overall finnished effect is passable.
This is not an item I could say was worth its cost.

I love the time spent at this kit. Hours and days (especially the rainy ones) pieceing it together. The only complaint I have about the kit is with the Maunfacturers.....there are two deck pieces which fit into cut-outs in the larger decks and they are the wrong size. Instead of sitting onto and into the cut-outs in the deck they are exactly the same size, hence they need to be glued and held in place until the glue sets. The end result is a makeshift assembly of these parts.

Otherwise the Titanic 100th Anniversary kit is a joy and my 7 yr old is thrilled with it.
(He's been warned that it doesn't float, and is not a toy to be played with).

I bought this last week and was quite taken aback as to the intricacy of it. Quite a few of the components ate very fragile and minuscule and you have to be very careful when getting them out, as they are easily snapped. There are hundreds of pieces to build this model and is definitely not for the beginner, nor for someone looking to complete it any time soon!! The instructions are quite clear though and it should look great when eventually completed.

A good build and a great finished model if you can get past the difficult bits.
The hardest part was the rigging at the end of the build. Very flexible for'ard mast makes it hard to add all the rigging without biasing tha mast in one direction. The constuction of the decks to each other and then to the hull with the additional parts also took a lot of patience and re-jigging. The rest is just a matter of breaking it up into little builds and then adding them to the structure. makes a lovely Item for the shelf and a great talking point. who dosn't have an interest in the Titanic. The best advice I can give is that its not for beginers and if you do buy it, then don't bother with the paints supplied, apart from using them to top up your own acrylic mixes.

Good model but not completely accurate. Titanic had 20 lifeboats this only has 18 other than that very good value for money and would buy it again.

But luckily it was for my 14 year old Grandson who does seem to be coping with it. I don't know where he finds the time - it looked like a journey of a 1000 miles to me! It is well made though, and if it is your thing - well, have a go!
