Why are they making a Titanic II?

If you look at website Romandisea Seven Star Theme Park China you can see Titanic 2 has started. The photos in the BTS Atlantic Daily Bulletin were taken in late September 2017. Now one year on no doubt a lot more work has taken place. .
See enclosed photos. Sorry they are on there side I can't get the computer to turn them around?

I understand all of that.

Clive Palmer has NOTHING to do with what the Chinese are trying to accomplish. His initiative was a fantasy which never happened. It is a separate enterprise which he has no involvement with
.
The Chinese enterprise just might.

Don't get the two confused.
 
Michael,
I never said Clive Palmer was to do with the new Chinese deal.
If you think that please except my apology.
As far as I known today Titanic 2 or some times know as T 2 is well under way. If I any further information I will let ET know about it.
 
I read that article. He is the chairman of the Blue Star Line. Is that the original Blue Star Line? Is their any rules/protocols for a company to name itself from a company from the past. Like a new shipping line calling itself the White Star Line?
 

New video of progress

TBH i like the look, but it really bugs me that the first class dinning room is not on D Deck and the stern looks like a modern one, not attractive in my opinion
 
There is an existing Blue Star Line in Denmark. It does all sorts of marine work, such as laying cables and pipelines. Palmer loves litigation, so he can argue with them.
 
Doesn't this bloke belong in a padded cell somewhere? He's been peddling this for years and so far, ain't nuthin' happenin!

Bill Willard posted about this on the Facebook feeds and it's getting the same skeptical reception.
Coincidentally, the original Titanic did in fact possess a padded room -- now if only we had a time machine so we could deposit him in said room (it is not found on the current state of the wreck, as it was in the breakup zone).

It's would be possible as a easter egg in a Titanic video game. Either that or when you walk past the padded room, you hear faint conspiracy theories being screamed from inside it's padded walls...

Back to topic (and thread) and technically the White Star Line still exists within Cunard as their "White Star" service, so it would be unlikely palmer could rename his company as such.
 
(Spoiler alert, the THG team is said to have modeled this room already, so it's certain to make an appearance in the game in question.)

Should Palmer's project actually succeed, it will hold the distinction of being the only ship afloat today to bear the hull and funnel livery of the old White Star Line, with SS Nomadic retaining the lofty honor of being the last true White Star ship, and also the only surviving ship from the era of Thomas Andrews himself.

But what flags will Titanic II fly? Is the WSL house flag now Cunard brand property? Will it be registered in the UK to allow it to fly the Blue Ensign like the original?

To get everybody current: At the time this was first mooted, there was a lot of grandstanding on Mr. Palmer's part. A lot of promotional videos, conferences and brochures. What you did not see.....anywhere....and what you still don't see:

NO actual design drawings, NO request for proposals, NO bids solicited, no shipyard chosen, NO contracts let, and not even a single piece of steel cut.

Zip, zilch, nada, nyet....a whole lot of nothing.

There is no progress. There never was.

Thanks. You answered what I was going to ask which was has there been any physical work done at all. As stated in various threads before this one I don't see how it could be the least bit accurate with todays regulations.

Nope....only noise pollution from Mr. Palmer along with some insinuations of fraud. That's all I've seen or heard of for myself.

Whether or not the allegations of fraud have any merit, I'm in no position to judge so if any of the Australian members can speak to that, I'll leave to their good offices!
