On a calm moonless night on 15th April 1912, the most renowned sea disaster in history happened 600 kilometers away from Newfoundland. The most innovative ship ever constructed by a human engineering genius crashed with an iceberg and sank, killing 1,517 passengers and crew. The "Olympic" class ship bore the name "Titanic" and turned out to symbolize the superiority of the forces of nature over the human mind. Regardless of the terrible accident that caused the disaster, the Titanic is worthy of admiration as shipbuilders' most perfect creation of the early 20th century.
At the time of its launch, it was the biggest passenger steamer. Its length was 269 meters, an approximate equivalent of three football fields, while its width was 28 meters. The height from the keel to the top of the mast is 56 meters, which is approximately the height of a modern 20-storey building. The steamer's mass was 52310 tons. This is nearly 300 Boeing 747 aircraft.
The Titanic comprised the most advanced technology. Two steam engines and a turbine caused a 55,000 l / s output. A pair of three-bladed side and four-bladed central propellers gave the ship an acceleration of 42 km / h. The whole vessel was electrified. Installed between the hold's compartments were the electrical bulkheads, which closed when water was detected. Advanced communications systems gave the captain and duty officer an opportunity to monitor all of the ship's systems.
Choosing ship models to create a designer, the "Metal time" engineers, first of all, turned to the history of the early 20th century's most impeccable and named the model "Lost at Sea." In this model, you can find the era's super-steamers' features, magnificence, power, and grace. Two propellers, four pipes, four decks, anchors with chains, and hold rooms with a gearbox and an electric motor - this ship will excite everyone who is concerned about technical masterpieces.
The models' numerous components and parts will give you the joy of technical creativity for many priceless hours. The metal taming and the fulfilment of the obtained outcome will leave a remarkable impression and a sense of belonging to the significant creations of the past. The Lost at Sea is a tribute to the inventor's audacity and the courage of the crews of the 20th century's great steamers.
Therefore, the Lost at Sea model should undeniably become a part of your collection.
The Lost at Sea model is one of the largest scale Metal Time models. This is vindicated by the super-steamers' super-size that turned out to be its prototype. Therefore, this model's number of parts and elements is several times higher than the simpler prefabricated models. This guarantees an exciting dive into the theory and practice of shipbuilding during the steam engine era.
The model is equipped with an electric motor with a gear system, Instead of a steam engine, that drives the ship's propellers.
The ship's hull backs the demonstration platform. Curly cuts are made on the sides, imitating waves. Survey cutouts in the sides give you the opportunity to observe the mechanisms' operation.
The prefabricated Lost at Sea model will decorate the interior of the home of the lover of adventure novels and the wind-salted "sea wolf." The legendary super-steamer will recap the unprecedented love story of a romantic schoolgirl and will conveniently symbolize luxury and innovation on a businessman's desk.
Cutting the set precisely does away with the likelihood of cuts in the event of assembling. The parts closely fit into each other and will not lead to joint problems. The brushed metal's nice tactile impressions, durability, and aesthetics differentiate steel parts constructively from plastic or wooden ones used in other constructors.
Appropriate flat packaging crafted from maintainable eco-friendly cardboard integrates a status gift's solidity and aesthetics. Every Metal Time model buyer gets a club badge, a thank you card and a special number allocated to each model. Joining the Metal Time club creates more opportunities for every customer.
WHAT IS IN THE GIFTBOX?
Besides, every customer gets a club badge "Metal Time" and the club's registration card, which creates opportunities for the "Metal Time" constructor owners activities.
