Thanks for the comments. as for now I am planning to build the case using plexiglass, but it depends on the availability nearby, but there is a framerīs shop next to īmyī mill. So perhaps Iĺl be using glass instead. Iīm not sure yet, both have conīs and proīs. As you said Peter, the plexiglass attracts dust and will be scratched easily. But I think glass is more fragile and heavier. As for now I am leaning towards plexy glass, but we will see.

The last couple of days I have been working on some more details to be added, like the deckcrane at the bow, the lifeboats and davits (scratch made from pins as used in the construction of Titanicīs cranes). And some airvents, also constructed the same way as in my Titanic build.

I also place a picture of the tug which I had used during design of the model;


Huskisson with enclosed lower deck as can also be seen at Titanicīs sea trials

The model more detailed;



Having added the bowcrane, airvents, lifeboats and davits



Having added the airvents to the third tug. I will pick up some railings for this third tug tomorrow.

I think the airvents are a bit large, but this way they do fit with the appearance of the 1:200 scale Titanic.


Comments are welcome!

Jerry

After a short moment of lack of time to build, I found some time to add some more details to my other tug model the last couple of days. Iīve added some stairs and railings;





And the tugs next to the 1:200 Titanic;



Next I need to install a shipswheel on all three of them and perhaps adding some crew to both the tugs and the Titanic bringing more life into the planned diorama.

Any ideas on how to create the water?

Jerry

I would suggest a sheet of "rippled" plastic that home improvement stores sell for shower stall enclosures etc. You can paint the backside blue or green, and sculpt wakes out of sculpey or clay.

Captivating Project...,

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for involving us in the recreation of Titanic in a harbor scene - an ongoing creation of a snapshot of White Star Lines prestigious Liner in time.
Besides that, I like tugboats.

Count me as waitlisted on your future efforts...,

Bien Cordialement, +Gil

P.S. Creating water? Depends on the degree of realism that's desired...,

Thanks for the comments and suggestions for creating water.

And Gil, thank you for tuning in.. I am not sure yet, which kind of diorama the Titanic will be put in, but for now I was thinking about recreating the sea trials on April 2nd 1912;



This way I donīt have to fill the decks with passengers, but can add some officers to the bridge and some crew on the tugs. As for the reality of the water, it needs to be as real as possible, but also fit to the design of the models.

Jerry

Thanks for the comments about creating the water, I have not started that yet.
First I had added some more details to the tug models.

I had bought me some wood beads which I had painted over to create the fenders on the tugs.
They are a bit out of scale, but I think they look nice;





They donīt look as massive in reality as they do on the picture.

Jerry
