April 2012 marks the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic
She was the largest passenger liner of her day, and the sinking of the Titanic on April 15, 1912, resulted in the loss of over 1500 passengers and crew. Many of the maritime safety procedures and precautions followed today are the result of lessons learned from this tragic event.
Minicraft Models marks this anniversary with the release of the new RMS Centennial Titanic. This museum-quality kit contains over 400 separate parts molded in 1/350 scale . . . recognized as the most popular scale for plastic model ships. Includes a one piece hull, engraved deck and hull detail, decals, fine rigging line, commemorative 'Centennial' plaque and illustrated assembly instructions. When completed, the model measures almost 30 inches long, which makes it the largest, most accurate plastic model of the Titanic available anywhere. Paint and glue are not included. Recommended for model builders age 14 and older.
