Glad you like it. I tried to post 4 images yesterday but the computer kept booting me off so i could only post that one. It's the first time Ive sent an attachment and that is why there was all that blank space with it. Ive got 3 other photos, ready to post, a close up of the Lounge mantlepiece, one of the Smoking room mantlepiece and one of the Smoking room windows. Can you tell me how to put multiple images on the one attachment? I'm not that familiar with fancy computer stuff! For now I'll just post the mantle photo by itself. Apologies for all the wasted space!

Very nice work, Damon. What scale are you working to? And is everything scratch-built, or were you able to make use of anything like doll house furniture? You can include more than one image with a single posting by repeating the attachment procedure for each file. If you don't have any software which can crop your images to remove the white space, try IrfanView, a small programme which can be downloaded for free and is very useful for adjusting image files and for many other purposes:

Wow, that really is great work Damon! I was also wondering what scale you're working. Have you ever thought about building a replica newel post or something? :)
 
Again, that's very impressive work, there's no way I could even come close to something like that either by modeling it in wood or creating it on the computer. You have an excellent talent, Damon. Keep up the good work.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments and the help regarding posting attachments. I did multiple attachments but they all came out with the white space so I might have to download the irfanview stuff. The model is 1/12th size...the standard size for dolls houses although I havent been able to buy anything in the shops for it except for plates/books etc. As for making a replica newel post, the closest I ever got was years and years ago when I made a Grand staircase out of cardboard and paper. I made the Cherub out of a special bread dough clay that had to be cooked in the oven to harden, but I forgot I had put wire stiffening inside it and when I put it in the mircowave my Cherub shot sparks everywhere!
 
Damon,

I was in Michael's (craft store) yesterday, just looking around and I have to agree that it's hard to find stuff to furnish it with. For an unbeknownst reason I decided to go where they have all the woodworks and I was checking out all the types of wood they had that you could work with and what not. I saw "doll house" furniture but like the main thing they had was the china cabinets/book cases (some were missing doors, I might add) and none of it really looked like Titanic. However I will say this . . . this one aisle had these intricately carved thin pieces of wood with different patterns on it. They reminded me of the inlaid details used in the suite that can be seen in pictures of Olympic/Titanic. I can promise you I almost had a stroke right there. If I had had the money I would have been buying them out of that stuff and then gold foiling it before putting it to my walls. ;)

Btw, in the first image you posted it looks like the chandelier in the far background on the left is lit up. Do you have real electric/battery operated lights in your model? Keep up the good work.

The light in the background is lit up, but not with anything fancy..I just poked some bud lights through holes in the ceiling. Fortunately the design of the Lounge lights hides all the ugly bulbs and plastic sheaths. I'll have to make something more suitable down the track. the trouble with the bud lights is that they get very hot, my Titanic might catch on fire!
 
It still looks great. I imagine lights back then weren't too bright so it seems to fit in with it's surroundings pretty well. Titanic on fire? Now that'd be an interesting yet sad demise for the ship. If you get a chance, please post some more pics, it's looking pretty exciting. I can't wait to see more of it.

oh Damon its fabulous.....im an interior designer so i know how difficult it is to build models. an artist and an australian accent to boot......my knees are week.

One word, wow. I think it's truly amazing that you, let alone anyone can create something as intricately detailed as that. Ya know, I've thought about going into interior designing but was quickly discouraged from it by certain family members because not everyone "knows" about me. So now I'm back to my original major, Communications(Journalism)/Psychology.
 
Damon,

Glad to see more photos of your model, it is indeed amazing! The size of your model allows you to pay attention to more intricate detail. Let me know if you need help or close ups with any of the things.

As for the lights on the ships, I have a copy of an article which criticized the lighting, saying some of it was too bright and too demanding on the eyes, especially the while Ladies Reading and Writing Room!

Regards,

Daniel.

I'm toying with making the Reading and Writing room next...goodness knows where I'll put it though! In order to make these two rooms I had to demolish the older ones I made. I snapped the old Lounge in about the same place as the real one snapped just to get some sort of idea what it might have looked like...macabre I know! Mike, the mantle in the Smoking Room is 23.5 cm long and stands 14 cm tall. To get a better idea of the size, the "Plymouth Harbour" above it was cut out of my copy of Titanic Voices!
