Thanks Nigel, you just reminded me that I have the one sold by Agostini, by the week, a few little bits with each mag, probably more than 30 years ago, have it all, unfortunately never got past finishing the hull. Ah well one of these fine days I'll dig it out.

Reminds me of a time in Belfast when I was delivering to a company and they had a SERIOUSLY tired model of the Titanic on their bench - wish I had rescued it!!!

Wow! :o That is stunning! Beautiful workmanship and skill on display. Nicely painted and subtly weathered too! I didn't realise they made a model for the shoot.

Oooh, that would be some impressive model! You'd have a job making the display case for that one Liam :lol:

The display cases are easy enough to make believe it or not. Ok I suppose routing the bevel is the tricky bit and you only get 1 shot at it and now that I have discovered using teck 7 to stick them together, hopefully they will be bullet proof. How's the latest project coming along.

Which Liam, the model or retirement ? I suppose if you started building it now you might have a slim chance of
finishing it by the time you do retire. 8oS
