The Graupner R.M.S. Titanic is one of our Premium Line of ships, beautifully detailed and unmatched in the industry. Arriving Almost Ready to Run, the motors, electrical system and rudder servo are already placed, and only the radio need be installed before the boat is seaworthy. For reliability, performance, further telemetry and model-specific function expansion we highly recommend a Graupner radio such as the mc-16.
The Graupner Premium Line ships are carefully handcrafted and assembled using CNC processing to replicate the model as originally as possible. The hull is made from molded GRP complemented by the superstructure and deck which are constructed from laser-cut ABS parts. Many of the small items are made from metal, and almost everything is factory-assembled. The hull, parts of the superstructure, the masts and fittings are spray painted using semi-matt paints. Decals are already applied. With so many details and scale fittings, the Premium Line ships all have an impressive scale appearance.
The British passenger ship the R.M.S. Titanic is probably the most famous ship in the world, inspiring imaginations and numerous works of popular culture, books, songs, films, exhibits, and memorials. Laid down in 1909 and completed in early 1912, Titanic was at the time the largest ship in the world and pompously hailed as unsinkable. Operated by White Star Lines, Titanic began its maiden voyage from Southampton on April 10, 1912, destined for New York City. Its passengers included some of Europe’s wealthiest people in addition to hundreds of immigrants.
Four days into its Atlantic crossing the Titanic collided with an iceberg, sinking within two hours and 40 minutes. Of the 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died, mostly poor immigrants and working crew. The high number of victims, inadequate number of lifeboats, disorganized evacuation protocol and dramatic rescue attempts help to shroud Titanic in the mystery that still surrounds it today.
