A Tiny Titanic
Each MetalWorks model is laser etched in meticulous detail on one, two, or three 11 cm (4.33") metal sheets. Pop out the pieces by hand (or use wire cutters to get especially crisp lines), bend the tabs using needle-nose pliers, and fit them together as shown in the simple pictorial instructions. Their small size and intricate detail calls for some patience and dexterity when assembling MetalWorks models -- they can be more challenging than their low piece count might suggest. For maximum dramatic effect, display your model on the LED Display Base or the Solar Spinner (sold separately, see the Related Products tab).
The Titanic is one of the more intricate MetalWorks models. It consists of 37 pieces on two sheets of metal. Customers tell us that it takes about three hours to assemble.
Please note that Metal Earth models have sharp edges and are not suitable for children under 14.
Are you curious...?
Everybody knows that the RMS Titanic sank on her maiden voyage on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg, killing 1,514 people. The Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time and was considered unsinkable. Did you also know that the Titanic was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners? White Star Lines commissioned the RMS Olympic and the Britannic (originally called the Gigantic) at the same time. So what happened to Titanic's sister ships? Britannic hit a German mine and sank in 1916. Olympic was sailing across the Atlantic in the opposite direction when Titanic sank, and actually received a distress call on that cold April night but was too far away to render assistance. During WW1 Olympic was pressed into service as a troop transport; in 1918 she rammed and sank a German U-boat. In 1920 she was refitted for civilian passengers and enjoyed an uneventful career until she was finally scrapped in 1935.
