Their rendition of the RMS Titanic is truly breath-taking. It’s a kit suitable for intermediate builders, as it’s rich with exquisite intricacy and detail. The hull is a beautiful dark red wood, which greatly contrasts the bright red steel of the actual boat. It features the iconic four stacks, and has the name ‘Titanic’ emblazoned in classy golden lettering on the side, giving the entire model an accomplished, dignified sense of regality.
The RMS Titanic is perhaps one of the most famous ships of all-time, with an undoubtedly tragic story. This beautiful legacy is brilliantly encapsulated in OcCre’s reproduction, as it features an exquisite level of detail, furthering the amazing qualities that this model possesses.
At a scale of 1:300, it may be easy to assume that many key features may have been skipped over, but with OcCre, that is never the case. The sheer amount of detail present in this Titanic build is mind-blowing, with each part expertly crafted, sourced, woven and designed. It’s length measures in at ninety centimetres, with a width of eleven and a half, and a height of twenty-four, making it fairly sizable, but not too cumbersome. For added rigidity, the construction is plank-on-frame, and thus the longevity of the model is favourable.
Overall, it’s a fantastic model which captures all of the brilliant heritage of the real-life counterpart, in all its tragic history. The details are nothing short of sublime, and each measurement is made with the utmost care and meticulousness, ensuring the best possible end result. It’s a wonderful testament to the ship itself, enthusiasts of the Titanic, and the maritime industry as an entirety.
