Titanic is one ship that has left its indelible mark in history as well as in our minds. Perhaps, that is why folks are forever trying to recreate its magic with film and the documentaries. However, none has ventured into the fields that RMS Titanic comes from. This one is reproduction of the grand boat at a scale of 1:50. Some close to 400 man-hours were spent in assembling this 6-foot beauty that comes with a remote control.
The makers reveal that 300 individually handcrafted pieces like sculpted cedar strips, white maple planks and mahogany superstructures have been put together. A lot of attention and care has gone in to keeping up with the minutest detail of the original Titanic that sailed in 1912.
The RMS version of Titanic has three propellers and a trio of 550-watt electric motors to power them. Two rechargeable batteries keep up to providing around three hours of cruising power while maintaining a ship speed of 5mph. The batteries need three hours to be recharged. At $2,500, this mini Titanic is great for keeps.
