Titanic is a MOC created by SKP4472. Designing of the MOC started in August 2011.

Background

RMS Titanic 3
The liner sank on its maiden voyage back on the 15th April 1912 in the North Atlantic after it struck an ice-berg. The liner sank in less than two hours and claimed the lives of over 1500 of the 2200 souls on-board.

With less than a year left till the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of RMS Titanic I have decided to create a LEGO minifigure-scale model of the liner. The entire creation of the ship may take several years but I'm determined to make this work.

Steps

The following steps will be made:

  • Design the liner bit by bit building one section at a time using LDD
  • Put the entire ship together on LDD.
  • Buy all the pieces.
  • Buy just over 2,200 minifigures (yes, I know it's allot).
  • Build the ship bit by bit.

Plan

If all this succeeds I will consider doing the following to it:

  • Hire out a swimming pool capable of holding the entire size of the ship (can you guess what I'm doing here?)

Now we all know that a LEGO brick can float on water, the question is, can hundreds of thousands of LEGO bricks do the same? These are the two possibilities:

  • One: it sinks as soon as it's lowered into the pool.
  • Or Two: it stays afloat letting water flow in at a slow rate.

If it floats, I will take it out of the water and to the correct scale, take a line of bricks out of the star-board side of the ship. I will then place it back in the water and video it sinking.

If it sinks then the ship will be raised and I will insert little bags or something that will hold air within them to help it stay afloat. Hence when I take the gap out, It would hopefully sink at a slow rate.
