Default My Raise the Titanic Film Replica Model

Hello everyone.

New member, so please be gentle with me. As my first posting here I wanted to share with you my 2003 build; Titanic but unlike you have seen here before. Titanic is represented here as she appears in the 1980 ITC movie Raise the Titanic. I have been interested in Titanic since the mid 1970s. Raise the Titanic was my first cinematic movie. Although heavily criticized by critics, personally I like the movie and these days it takes me back to not only my childhood but the innocent days prior to the discovery of the real wreck.

The base for the model is the 1998 retooled Minicraft 1:350th Titanic kit. Over a period of months I scratch built and altered the model to represent the liner as she appears in the 1980 movie. I used 'TomsModelworks' PE sets where needed. reference and research come from my years and background in Titanica. I have researched Titanic for over 30 years which includes authoring works, working with television, radio and many other authors and collectors. My recent involvement had me working with Channel4, National Geographic and the BBC. Regarding Raise the Titanic, I supplied the special features and authored the sleeve notes for the 2007 'Network' UK dvd release of the movie.

The model can be displayed either on a standard stand or with a artificial seabed with the wreck pitched to one side and the broken funnel near-by.

The model was featured in a spotlight section of Peter Davies-Garners book Titanic And Her Sisters Olympic & Britannic.

Apart from Titanic, my other interest is science fiction. Mainly the works of H.G.Wells. And a huge HUGE fan of The War of the Worlds.

Hope some will find my model of interest and I look forward to chatting with you.

Kind regards
Jonathan

Here is the movie model. At 55ft in length, 12ft in height and weighing 10 tons, it was and still remains the largest fully hulled Titanic model/film prop ever built.

Wow. Not knowing much on the subject, I was clicking on the pics expecting to see a pristine boat.

That's some nice work.

I *LOVE* this pic!



(shoot that pic in a blue room, little mood lighting, with a little fog machine wafting in front . . . work of art I tell ya)

Your model looks awesome! There's a Romantic little twinge that occurs whenever I hear the name Titanic, and you've hit it right on the mark.

Here is a portside view of the model. The weathering was done by air brush and the textured FX was created using a car paint used to prevent stone chipping on lower panels.

Default Re: My Raise the Titanic Film Replica Model

I am slowly (extremely slowly) working on a book about the making of the 1980 film Raise the Titanic. Since 1978, I have collected much material for the film from hundreds of reviews, behind-the-scenes photographs, brochures, special screenings material, 8mm test footage and publicity material. The book is still in it early stages and at present I have no estimated release date. It is, as you could say, a work in progress as I want to do the book justice.

One of the items that will be featured in the book is a special commissioned artwork (one that I worked closely with the artist) and depicts the Titanic from the movie. I have had it made into a limited edition signed print.

Raise the Titanic was my introduction to the world of Clive Cussler. He's my all-time favorite author, and now I need to go re-read that book, which I haven't read in 20 years!

Your model is awesome, and I'll gladly buy your 'Making of' book when it comes out.

Ditto on the coolness of Mr Cussler!
