Titanic V2, Updated 10/22/12 . My second try on Titanic with a new program. This is a full minifig scale project. . Hey Everyone,
Here is a partial teaser to my redone model of Titanic that is to the scale of the Lego minifig. I have switched programs and I have a long way to go, as I am doing every single room, stairwell, and porthole possible. The ship is currently over 31 feet long, almost 4 feet wide, and is going to be almost 8 feet tall if the proportions are correct.
So far, I have the Boat Deck through C Deck, though each need to be finished in one way or another. I began the roofing of the Boat Deck, and in turn the smoke stacks, a lot sooner than I intended. But, oh well!
You may be wondering why there are spaces between decks, and that is because I have not fully built the floor beneath each deck, which is a full brick in height.
Eventually, with college being a deterrent to fully devoting my time to this 'little' project, I will get to the next few decks and the Tank Top. After the last decks have been added and all the small problems fixed, then the next items on the list of 'to-do' will be adding details like benches, vents, fans, props, cranes, davits, lifeboats, and populating the ship with as close an amount of minifigs as possible.
So, have a nice one ladies and gentlemen, and please wish me luck at this undertaking! I have a ways to go!
Greetings and Happy Holidays to Everyone,
While I did have to take apart B and C Deck, I did do some work on the roof as you can see.
I still have a long way to go, like adding fencing, and other little details, though I did add quite a few. I will finish the walls of B Deck, then start on the outlining of the rest of C Deck to begin work on that, and then go down!
It has been a long time in officially updating this page besides minor tweaks and corrections, but better late than never!
Something that had been troubling me for a long time was how to design the masts. For the most part I couldn't use round pieces due to the need for doors, an inside ladder, and outside attachments. But, I finally designed something I could be proud of as over-sized masts go. I should also mention that while I try to keep a certain focus on the order of the to-dos, I tend to go here and there as ideas strike me. So I have finished the funnels, the Boat Deck roof, and various other minor things like the Promenade Deck cranes and some deck moorings. I also put in the telegraph wire-separator between the masts. On a much more interesting note, I have also finished both Grand Staircase domes and covers. MLCad makes custom rotation very difficult, but I make do and it's nothing that when built for real can't be fixed.
But now, some pictures:
Hey Guys, I have made some additions to the Forecastle and Poop Deck, and while I have still to tile the latter and add the rails to both, I thought I would show you what I have anyway.
Please forgive some of my pictures, including this one. It takes forever to do anything in the program I am using due to the size of the model.
I finally got this to turn out semi-well and to the angle I wanted, but here you are! As you can see, it is missing railing, tiling, the stairs to the docking bridge, and the all-important flag on the aft end, but they will be put in! Eventually...
Wish me luck!
