HMHS Britannic - Based on Trumpeter 1/200 Titanic - by Kevin - Started September 2022


Recommended Posts

good evening everyone

thank you for comments and likes

like all kits, they are not always suited for conversion, and a lot of artistic licence is required to make it work, its not magic, just a lot of worrying, of what people might think of my pathetic attempt to show a build in progress

i have two sets of gantries in place, but the spacing between them is slightly different as there is not enough space to put everything in, also the superstructure islands are different between the two hulls

however they are are now in place and hopefully staying there, im still thoroughly enjoying this, but so looking forward to getting back into wood

 

some walkway supports are raised a bit, will be sorted

Some of the extra detail, ladders and fixing points

Nice Kevin, I like those gantries. :thumbsup:

Im going to delve into the intergoogle to see how you get those boats out of those racks (sorry, dont know right word).

i still dont understand it, i was trying to find an answer, they were referring to pulling the boats out of the racks

I wonder if the beams on the top row are either removeable or are hinged in some way to the left & right so that the boats on the bottom can be winched out 

the video walkthrough does not show them with hinges, but welded members with triangle supports

i have asked tonight in all the Britannic FB groups, so no doubt by this time tomorrow, i will have lots of replies, off which only one will make any sense

You don't need to worry here matiepoos, it all looks remarkable to us.

Ignorance is bliss. :smile:

this is one (the only one reply i have recd, 

t's a bit like scaffolding where individual beams could be removed, allowing the gantries to lift them up.
