Titanic Made From Paper (27 pics)

This ship model (scale 1:200) is built according to drafts and different photos found in books and at online resources (it took 2 years and 2 months to build it). The main efforts were aimed at ship functionality. Punch cards, whatman paper and other materials were used in building this model. All ship details were covered with water-resistant varnish due to what this paper model isn’t soaked in water (you can notice this on the photos). You can distantly navigate ship steering wheel and screw propellers. This model is illuminated by bulbs and light-emitting diodes. All electric equipment feeds from 6-volt accumulators set below waterline. Smoke generators are set in flues (nichrome wire is soldered in rosin). Technical problems didn’t allow taking quality pictures of the smoke, but you can still see it on some photos. All windows and portholes are covered by varnish tape in the soap-bubbles style. Jackstays and other similar ropes were made from threads; sometimes fishing lines and wire were used. The ship has 16 compartments and 11 decks. Faucets, boats and anchors are operating. I just hope it won’t drown like his “big brother”…
