Waltonwood employee builds Titanic model

ROYAL OAK — When Randall Porterfield began building a nearly 11-foot replica of the Titanic four years ago in the privacy of his bedroom, he knew something special was happening.

“Practice makes perfect, but I believe I have a gift,” he said.

The Detroit resident’s inspiration to try such a project was born from his tenacity and belief that he could accomplish anything.

The process began with studying hundreds of photos, books and movies to design the ship to be as historically accurate as possible.

Porterfield’s love for the Titanic began when he attended the traveling Titanic artifact exhibit in Detroit while he was in fourth grade.

“The model that was on display deeply gripped my imagination and made me want to do a model of my own,” he said. “This idea was just an image in my mind; now it is a reality before my eyes.”
