Where is the Britannic Playroom conversation?
I'm a little confused here...or I'm totally overlooking it.

Anyway, thursday I'll be leaving for one day to visit Paris.
I hope to get some good shots of Nomadic.

Regards,
Remco

Bob Ballard is too busy with his research in Pearl Harbour (serious), so why don't you both take a dive, huh?

Anyway, does anyone know where I can find pictures from Play Rooms on liners like Aquitania, Mauretania, Imperator etc?

Remco

BTW, I've just returned from a trip to Paris where I got to see Nomadic(only took 3 pics, after that I ran out of pictures

).
I was surprised by it's size, it's 'rather' large.
Hard imagine Titanic laying next to this ship.

It must have looked strange in that touring boat, while all the others were looking to the left to see the Eiffel Tower, I was looking to the right to see Nomadic.

Posted in the 'Message Board Questions' field that we had lost the original conversation, apparently because the board was retrieved after that trouble accessing it.

Hi Remco,

For the Children's Room on the Lusitania/Mauretania if you can locate a copy I suggest you look at a Reprint of the "Shipbuilder; No 2, figs 106, 107 & 108; pages 137 & 138". I am not aware of any such room on the Aquitania.

Hope this helps,
Lester

Hi All!

I was looking into the Britannic's First Class accommodations and I was quite interested in the color scheme, decor style and furniture / equipment features of the First Class Playroom, I cant seem to find this in any Britannic references I have and any information would be helpful.

Best Regards,

Brian

Hello Brian,

I wish I knew! Don't think I've ever come across any info describing this room in detail in White Star adveristing or magazines from those days. However - there should be some info about this room in the Britannic's builders specifications book; sadly I don't have access to it...

I vagely remember seeing a picture from a childerns playroom from that era, I'm not very sure though, but that decor was quite similar to that of the Olympic class' gymnasium.
Pictures from Queen Mary's playrooms show a nicely decorated room, with lots of toys and such in it. But I have the idea that Britannic's one was much simpler, perhaps some wooden toys; and someone who would look after the kids and who would keep them busy.
That's the best guess I can make!

Regards,
Remco

Hi Remco!

Yes information on this area of the Britannic is hard to come by, I was looking to do a sketch and perhaps an article about the area, add it to my collection of Britannic renderings.

By the way, I guess you didn't get my private message regarding the attachment of the brass conversion sets to the Minicraft 1:350 model. I am intrigued on how one would fasten and secure these items, any info would be appreciated.

Best Regards,

Brian

Hello Brian,

Hmm, I didn't see a private message in my mailbox...I suspect it ended up in my "Spam" folder; which I usually empty after a very quick glance at it!

I'll try to contact you with a private message this evening.

Regards,
Remco

Ahhh, the possibilities of a beautiful, empty room.

(Yes, too much HGTV)

Aww, stupid me! There was no window on the Aft bulkhead, as the roof to the R and W room would interfere. Future updates will have no window.

The Children's Playroom without the window on the Aft Bulkhead.

I still need to find Art of the era more in lines with 1910-20 decor.

Oh, so the Childrens' playroom was a converted Gymnasium? That's what the room looks like. Very nice job well done! Sorry, I'm just still trying to figure out Britannic's layout and the location of certain rooms. Did they movie Britannic's gymnasium elsewhere or was this built on the opposite side of the ship from the gym? What program are you using to make these? They're really great!!
