I have the same model but am hesitant on building it, cause I don't want to screw it up.

Build it, it's actually not that difficult to build.

Yeah, it's an enjoyable building experience. The most difficult part was getting the stern in the right shape, but the fit of parts was still excellent.

Make a cheap black and white copy so you can test before you tackle the original model. This system has worked excellently for me and you don't ruin the original model.

What would be a good source?

Marco, I am an old (and long time) modeler, who has been out of the hobby for a while. But, thanks to Covid-19, I've had to give up my social life and am looking to get back into modeling again. I used to be able to find quality paper models very easily. But, now, not so much. Do you know of some good sources for models like the one of the Titanic you're currently working on?

Thank you in advance for your support,

Mikel Berry
