Titanic V2, Updated 10/22/12
My second try on Titanic with a new program. This is a full minifig scale project.
About this creation
Hey Everyone,

Here is a partial teaser to my redone model of Titanic that is to the scale of the Lego minifig. I have switched programs and I have a long way to go, as I am doing every single room, stairwell, and porthole possible. The ship is currently over 31 feet long, almost 4 feet wide, and is going to be almost 8 feet tall if the proportions are correct.

So far, I have the Boat Deck through C Deck, though each need to be finished in one way or another. I began the roofing of the Boat Deck, and in turn the smoke stacks, a lot sooner than I intended. But, oh well!

You may be wondering why there are spaces between decks, and that is because I have not fully built the floor beneath each deck, which is a full brick in height.
Eventually, with college being a deterrent to fully devoting my time to this 'little' project, I will get to the next few decks and the Tank Top. After the last decks have been added and all the small problems fixed, then the next items on the list of 'to-do' will be adding details like benches, vents, fans, props, cranes, davits, lifeboats, and populating the ship with as close an amount of minifigs as possible.
So, have a nice one ladies and gentlemen, and please wish me luck at this undertaking! I have a ways to go!

Update 12/10/2011

Greetings and Happy Holidays to Everyone,
While I did have to take apart B and C Deck, I did do some work on the roof as you can see.

I still have a long way to go, like adding fencing, and other little details, though I did add quite a few. I will finish the walls of B Deck, then start on the outlining of the rest of C Deck to begin work on that, and then go down!

Update 6/30/2012
It has been a long time in officially updating this page besides minor tweaks and corrections, but better late than never!
Something that had been troubling me for a long time was how to design the masts. For the most part I couldn't use round pieces due to the need for doors, an inside ladder, and outside attachments. But, I finally designed something I could be proud of as over-sized masts go. I should also mention that while I try to keep a certain focus on the order of the to-dos, I tend to go here and there as ideas strike me. So I have finished the funnels, the Boat Deck roof, and various other minor things like the Promenade Deck cranes and some deck moorings. I also put in the telegraph wire-separator between the masts. On a much more interesting note, I have also finished both Grand Staircase domes and covers. MLCad makes custom rotation very difficult, but I make do and it's nothing that when built for real can't be fixed.
But now, some pictures:




Update 10/22/12

Hey Guys, I have made some additions to the Forecastle and Poop Deck, and while I have still to tile the latter and add the rails to both, I thought I would show you what I have anyway.

Please forgive some of my pictures, including this one. It takes forever to do anything in the program I am using due to the size of the model.


I finally got this to turn out semi-well and to the angle I wanted, but here you are! As you can see, it is missing railing, tiling, the stairs to the docking bridge, and the all-important flag on the aft end, but they will be put in! Eventually...

Wish me luck!

Hey Guys, I have a shout out for you. Discovery.com has undergone some changes, including the removal of the very wonderful page that I was using for my deck planning. Now, I have some back ups, though they aren't the best, so I need to find something to replace it. If you know of anything FREE that could help me, I would be much appreciated. Again, I thank you all for your patience on getting more pictures and more product, and I can reassure you that though I haven't posted anything in a while, the project is still on, and more posts are upcoming! In any case, I look forward to your suggestions and your possible help! Cheers!

*jaw drops* Wow! This can be summed up with my favorite word, used for the second time on MOCpages: Awesomesauce. That describes everything about this entire MOC. Just amazing, and I hope that you are able to finish it some day!

Quoting Mihe Stonee Holy moly... that's a project... And it's looking awesome so far ! Do you have only pictures to do this or have you any technic-plans for orientation ??? I aske, because i started a (for me) bigger spaceship (the Nostromo-from Alien) in LDD. I found some reference pics from above, underside, side, etc. And i first layed some different grids above them to get an idea where to go... And i'm interested how other people handle such a "big Lady" ;-) ! - Good luck for more !
Hey Mihe, No, I do this entirely from memory. ;) Yeah, I have to do extensive research in order to get the detail I am looking for, and to not completely mess things up. I have several books I use as references, which show the ship throughout construction in one, and the ship as she is now in another, both having a ton of pictures taken by Father Brown and from shortly after construction. I am also using a comprehensive tool from Discovery.com that has been incredibly useful to me, with an interactive deck by deck plan of the ship with furniture, small details, cut-away view, etc. I had originally tried to do this in LDD, and quickly came across the brick limit when doing just the Boat Deck (which in this model has 23863 pieces not including details just for one deck). That is something you will need to think about in your model, especially if you are trying for minifig scale like I am. I did a quick google search for "Nostromo deck plans" and immediately found plenty of images and websites. Plus, one of your biggest assets will be the movie. Look in there and compare with deck plans and you will have everything you need. If you still have trouble, do what I do: look at the doors/hallways. If the doors/hallways are just wide enough for the minifig (4 bricks), then measure from there using that as a reference; i.e. if hallway is 4 wide, and this room is twice as wide as the hallway, then room is 8 wide. Get out a ruler if you have to! :) Good luck!

Quoting Daniel Brilliant Holy cow! This is a true marvel. At this size it will take a lot of patience. Having just finished a 5 month long project, I can relate somewhat. Take your time, take breaks as needed, but never give up. I look forward to seeing the end product.
Hey Daniel, Considering you have some incredible stuff yourself, the size of my ship cannot compare to the quality that goes into yours. So I do wish you the best of luck. You aren't the only one that is wishing fervently for an end product. :)

Hey All, Forgive me if you have been watching this creation and are seeking updates, as I have been incredibly busy with college classes. But, I have included rails and various upper deck accessories and workings, and am currently working on the grand staircase dome and cover. Once I am done there, I will continue work on finishing B Deck. So work is continuing steadily - if slowly - and I will see about having pictures up for you to see soon.

Quoting Anders T This is a true marathon of shipbuilding, good luck to you.
Hey Anders, Thanks for the rating and the like! I saw your models and I might suggest using LDraw instead of LDD due to LDD being so restrictive and has very few parts in comparison to the former. It can be found at ldraw.org, and once you get a basic knowledge of how to work it becomes very enjoyable. I think you could be well off if you used it. Also, I noticed you have a very good eye for curvatures and making the hulls out of brick. I might need to consult you as I get to the lower decks. Cheers!
