HMHS Britannic

I'd love it if someone could design a paper model of Titanic's sister HMHS Britannic! Preferably in 1:200 scale

Enjoy,
Miles

Thank you for the information. I have however tried to build his models and they are too small for me to put together... I'm not sure how to resize them to 1:200 scale otherwise I would

The Britannic and Olympic modeldesigns on there are mine.
I have been in contact with Taschen to use their Titanic model in 1:200 scale as a template for a 1:200 scale Britannic and Olympic but I was not allowed to do so.

Those designs are fantastic Jerry, Just too small for me to build. As far as Taschen goes, I wouldn't prefer them over the Alan Rose model which is much more accurate.

Both the Taschen and Rose Titanics are simplified and don't have much detail. Easier to build, of course. And they have the greatest flaw of several ship kits: Lack of full hull. Any ship model resting on top of a table or shelf looks silly showing only half the model. These replicas with no full hull are mainly designed for dioramas but not for mantel display. Why don't you check the fantastic Schreiber's Titanic, full hull and designed to operate by RC. Also check the Gomix Titanic. Both models are really works of art. They are even better than the plastic rendition by Minicraft.
Check this video and you will be hooked!!
