Academy is back with another kit of the RMS Titanic, this time in 1/1000 scale. This new-tool gem is molded in multi-color plastic (MCP) and comes very close to being buildable without painting. The kit is molded in four different colors plus one tree of brass-plated plastic and presented on seven parts trees plus the bow and stern decks, lower hull, upper hull, and superstructure.
The box indicates that Academy has engineered an intuitive build kit and looking through the instructions, there are no surprises and looking at the parts, you could almost build this kit without the instructions. The layout of the assemblies are very intuitive and the pre-colored parts dont leave many areas needing paint. The kit also has a display stand included.
A well known subject joins Academy’ s Multi-Colored Parts (MCP) Series, it’s (14220) 1/700 R.M.S. Titanic.
The kit features an LED set which adds drama and brings the completed model to life. Deck structures are realistic, the hull is molded in color.
The kit comes with display stand and nameplate. Because it’s an MCP kit needing no painting, but still filled with fine detail, it can be enjoyed by beginner and experienced modeler alike.
Two AAA batteries are required.
No ship collection could be complete without a model of what is possibly the most famous ship in modern history. Though tragedy led to that fame, it is more important to consider the safety features now found on modern luxury vessels as a result of that tragedy. Few vessels have been studies as much as Titanic. This model was created from the most exacting data that could be provided by experts in the field and is considered the most accurate model of the ill-fated ship. Painstaking engineering has reproduced the proper number of windows in the skylight, for example, and the marking for each individual lifeboat correctly replicated of these on the ship. Also found on this model are the ships bell, free-floating forward cargo boom, center anchor and double-braced anchor chain, and, of course, those distinctive quadruple funnels!
This kit contains over 400 separate parts.
The kit features a one piece hull, engraved deck and hull detail, decals, fine rigging line and commemorative “Centennial� plaque.
When completed the model measures almost 30� long which makes it the largest, most accurate plastic model of the Titanic available anywhere.
