do you have any plans (or plans you've made) for the Olympic that you could email me? I'm trying to also make a 1/100 SS Olympic In her later career appearance
Response by Dave M on the 18th Mar 2013
HI Yes we used the plans from Dr Robert Haan at 100 scale for the RMS Titanic. They are very detailed plans and will enable you to build a very realistic model. You will need to make certain modifications to model Olympic but really the external differences are few, most notably the missing enclosed fore part of the quarter deck.
The plans are on six sheets of about 18ft by 3ft so an email would not be possible, and are copyright protected.
As far as I know the plans are still available, we paid about £200, and I will email you the address If you send me a personal message.
I am still researching details on the Olympic as she had many modifications over the years, particularily to the lifeboats and I am still not convinced my version Is correct at present. I am modelling around 1912/13 and good pictures are hard to come by.

Queen Mary 2 - Posted: 6 years ago by vaderswar
In the process of converting a revell 1/400 version of the Queen Mary2 Into a working r/c model using pager motors In the pods Instead of using propshafts to keep It as authentic as possible. Have put gearing In to turn pods so dont have to have a rudder. So far all tests have been successful and will shortly have all detailing done and have ballast sorted ready for test runs.

Dear Brian, The guy whose build blog I followed somewhat had 4 attempts at the bow thrusters through one problem or another, so I decided not to get the bow thruster to work. The one thing to scale that I have working Is the pods and have little motors In them which I am really pleased with. One good Idea I came up with which Is being copied at boat club Is a magnetic detachable keel, so I can still use It for display. I just simply hot glued two small Industrial strength strip magnets Inside hull and then the keel which Is a length of copper tube with two uprights soldered to two steel squares and It just simply attaches under neath and It works lovely. I will get around to getting It videoed but am recovering from having part of spine removed and have about forty or so bits still to put on , handrails etc and 100 scale passengers to put on. I live In southampton and quite often see the qm2 and other ships come In and out of town which Is great to see, God are they tall. regards steve
