The Design Process
The Titanic was completely different to anything I have built before, because of the techniques needed, the shape and the colours. The colour scheme had me ordering a new palette of parts and being creative with the black Minifigure stands.
The entire build uses a SNOT “Studs not on top” technique with the panels on the side built with plates and hinges. I have then used SNOT pieces to get the pointed shape at the front, and plates and hinges again on the engines. The top is a flat panel with bricks, and lots of detail including the windows.
The pillars at the top use a 3×3 piece, which up close isn’t fully round but it was the best way I could get the size right. The biggest challenge was keeping the build stable with such a variety of pieces going in each direction, so it has a strong “skeleton” on the interior.
