The ship at left is the “Titanic” made by Col Bridgeman. It was started several years ago (2002) by one of his grandsons who gave it away about a third of the way through. Col has finished it off having to buy the remaining kits which include full details about the ship, the materials needed to complete the project and full instructions.
When he took on the project, some parts were missing, e.g. the rudder which Col had to manufacture himself. There were 92 parts in all required to complete the project and Col spent over $770 for his efforts. Some of the work was very tedious with tweezers needed to insert some parts. There are over 500 portholes in the sides of the ship and they are very small.
His Grandson will turn 21 later this year and guess what will be his present from Col.
