I guess that would depend on what budget you do have and what kind of accuracy you were looking for. I built a very nice Titanic model many years ago I cant remember if it was by Airfix or Revell (most likely it was Airfix) and I think the scale was 1/700...it cant compare with minicraft as its so much smaller but a nice model all the same. hope that helps
I have a 80€ budget and I decided to go with the 1/400 revell and 1/700 ,1/1200 model from the same company (they are going to be use for what if britannic/gigantic and a titanic base on Andrews note from olympic maiden voyage)
Sounds good...I wish you luck in your build. I myself have recently started the minicraft 1/350 which I intend to light up. I actually bought the kit 4 or 5 years ago but only started building it on this new years day. so far I have drilled out all portholes and have painted the hull.
