I stubbled across a site that talks about a magazine from Hachette Publishers, Build the Titanic"! It talked about how you get all these magazines and a small number of pieces to build the ship and that it takes something like 100 weeks! It really sounds like a cool concept, especially when your trying to build up your modeling tools at the same time, but I can,t find their official site for oder info or pricing to figure out if it is in my budget or not? Can anyone Help me, prefferably someone who is currenty or recently completing!!!

Hello Rickerzs. Hello and welcome. I dont know what that site is that you describe. Maybe it was the modelling section of one of the other Titanic sites. E bay can get you what is required (sometimes). Ken.

Hachette titanic painting

Hi I have all the books I've just completed the planking I'm just wondered if anyone knows what book tells me where the painting of the hull starts as I want to source the paint before I get to it.

This is a great site for your painting info: http://titanic-model.com/paint/

As for the answer to your question, as a rule of thumb, I take the red colour up to about three planks from the bottom. Hope this does answer you question.

I'm starting to build the Titanic and find the frames from Issue 1 were the most difficult to slot in part A of the keel. It appears to be extremely tight. I used the sand paper to sand the slots but it didn't work. I can't seem to find a wood file that is able to fit into the slot. Any ideas?

Hello Gurjit. And welcome. It has been quite some time since these wooden frames were made so they may have warped a bit. I would advise to wrap sand paper around a this but sturdy piece of metal such as a knife then sand the slots. That way you will be able to apply more pressure on the inside only of the slot. You may also need to use a coarser grade of sandpaper but try using the sandpaper you have wrapped around a knife. You will not need to use a sharp knife as it is the sandpaper doing the work. Even though the knife has sand paper wrapped around it do NOT hold it by the edges. I assume I am talking to an adult if not please get an adult to help you. Ken.

Wood a wooden nail file fit in the slots perhaps?

Hello Andrew. A nail file would work as well and would be a lot safer. I work with wood every day but I dont have a nail file amongst my tools. :D Ken.

Thanks so much for the tips, Ken. Today after scouting around a hardware shop, I found the file that is small enough to fit into the slots. Lucky me. The idea of wrapping sand paper around the knife is also brilliant. I did use the nail file but I guess the China made ones available in my country, Malaysia is crappy.

Will try again tomorrow and thanks again for the tips.

Hello Gurjit. Glad to be of help. If you feel like it why don't you post a bit about yourself in the "Hello" section. So that we can get an idea of you. I assume that anyone on here lives in England but you obviously do not. Ken.

vw1956, yes it is a Hachette Titanic and I'm missing some 20 parts the main one being the keel. What I'm real after is pictures of these parts as I can build them from either thin 3 ply or thick strong balsa. The magazine No.s I'm after are as follows 1-6, 35, 39, 43, 57, 61-63, 69, 72, 74, 92-94, 96. if I can get photos of these parts as I said I can build them I'd rather do it this way than go onto Amazon or even evil-bay.
