Good hsots of the Titanic, ihave jsut returned from weymouth where I had the chance to talk to a guy who adapted the amati Titanic. How well does yours sail any pictures?. How much of the original hull did you use. Does it float on the waterline, how does it react to side winds? It looks like you only used 2 motors any reason why not 3.
The one I saw today had fibre optic scuttles and the centre keel was removed and the inside of the hull coated with fibre glass, He didn't sail it due the the wind conditions, in fact in turns with all 3 motors it does lean over dramaticaly. A good model but not a stable one, but reasonably quick.
these are the only pics, had to sell her after finishing due to financial problems :(
i used the complete hull as provided by mantua models
yes, it floated on waterline
yes, side wind and the titanic aren't good friends
in the begining i was afraid of cutting the centre keel, that's why the 3 motors were fitted later (3 speed400 instead of 2speed500)
some weeks ago i began with a new titanic, this time with 3 speed500
and 8 cells 9000mAh instead of 16 cells 4500mAh. this will put the main weight more to the middle.
also this time i won't use plexiglass for lighting the superstructure
hopefully these changes will result in a really stable model
