Large Scale

The 1.3 million pound Titanic model

Fine Art Models have taken the original plans and construction notes from Harland & Wolff to produce the most authentic model of the Titanic yet. The 1:48th scale model will set you back £1.3million, though there are cheaper 1:192 scale versions being done as a limited edition.

Fine Art Models own page on the Titanic model.

There are more pictures here.
