Academy is back with another kit of the RMS Titanic, this time in 1/1000 scale. This new-tool gem is molded in multi-color plastic (MCP) and comes very close to being buildable without painting. The kit is molded in four different colors plus one tree of brass-plated plastic and presented on seven parts trees plus the bow and stern decks, lower hull, upper hull, and superstructure.
The box indicates that Academy has engineered an intuitive build kit and looking through the instructions, there are no surprises and looking at the parts, you could almost build this kit without the instructions. The layout of the assemblies are very intuitive and the pre-colored parts dont leave many areas needing paint. The kit also has a display stand included.
A well known subject joins Academy’ s Multi-Colored Parts (MCP) Series, it’s (14220) 1/700 R.M.S. Titanic.
The kit features an LED set which adds drama and brings the completed model to life. Deck structures are realistic, the hull is molded in color.
The kit comes with display stand and nameplate. Because it’s an MCP kit needing no painting, but still filled with fine detail, it can be enjoyed by beginner and experienced modeler alike.
Two AAA batteries are required.
The 83,673 ton Queen Elizabeth was the largest liner in the world when it was built at Clydebank, Scotland and launched in September 1938. She served as a troop ship throughout WWII and was completely reconditioned before entering commercial service in October 1946 on the Cunard Line’s express service between Southampton, Cherbourgh and New York. At 1031ft long, she had accommodation for more than 2000 passengers and a crew of 1290 over 13 decks.
