My offering of the Revell R.M.S. Olympic. An OOB build with a few minor changes, the bench ends are painted black, the dados in the well decks are painted and some minor alterations to the kit suggested rigging. Wish I would have used EZ Line for the rigging and increased the number of funnel guy wires to six as against the three shown on the instructions. Also with EZ Line it would have been possible to fit the Marconi aerial.
Nevertheless a very nice kit to build and at this small scale doesn't take much room on display. Now discontinued by Revell but the 1:700 model of her ill-fated sister ship R.M.S. Titanic is still available.

Thank you for the positive feedback, it is much appreciated.

Peter, you spoke of a larger scale. Minicraft have a 1:350 scale Olympic (MC 11319) listed in the 'Future Releases' section at Hannants. Outside of my model making budget but should be a good build.

That's one for my wish list it going to cost me a arm and a leg ( might have to sell one of my arm's and legs to afford it).
