Two Titanics Coming!

Not one, but TWO Titanic partwork build-up models are coming in the next few months. Eaglemoss and Hachette are both releasing different versions of the legendary ship that tragically sunk after hitting an iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912. I have collected some information on both models and wanted to share the differences.

Based on the feature list and the larger size, I would like to build the Hachette model. For a while, the Hachette version of the Titanic was only available in the UK. However, as of May 2022, Agora Models has started selling the Hachette Titanic in the US. This led me to create yet another build site over at https://myrmstitanic.com, so it is going to happen!
