FeaturesLost in the depths for 73 years, its discovery in 1985 and subsequent exploration have made Titanic the best-known ship of all time. The many events relating to the Titanic have made it a legend. It was the subject of Watergate-type investigation in the U.S. The present safety standards applied to shipping are attributed to this event. Harland and Wolfe, builders of the Titanic and its sister ship, the Olympic, were unable to provide drawings, which were destroyed during WWII, or their model which disappeared during the Senate investigations in 1912. The model was, however, constructed from original drawings, photographs taken by survivors and other technical journals, many of which war provided by the Titanic Historical Society resulting in a model indistinguishable from the original ship.

Ex-Minihobby mold - kit is NOT motorized or illuminated. Includes rigging thread, painting notes and decal flag sheet.

Q & A
QUESTION: how well did it work? by None N 3/31/2012
ANSWER: It's a normal model. No complaints. Put it together in a couple hours for the kid to play with in the pool. Didn't paint it. The hull is black plastic and the rest of the parts are white. by C R 3/31/2012
