BUILD

This Agora Models/Hachette Partworks 1:200 scale RMS Titanic partwork model can be purchased in the US and Canada via the Agora Models website by signing up for a subscription. In the UK and other parts of Europe, it is available directly from the Hachette website and at various newsagents. As I am based in the US, this site will follow the Agora Models subscription version.

Over the span of about 2 years, Agora will deliver twenty-four packs containing 140 ‘issues’ that each contain a few parts of the model along with magazines that contain the build instructions, images, and information about the Titanic and her passengers.

The subscription is perpetual and automatically charges your credit card each time the next pack ships.  If necessary, however, the subscription can be suspended or cancelled at any time. This subscription version should include some FREE gifts along the way, which I will include below.

I created this site to share my own build progress and hopefully offer hints and tips I discovered along the way. It is not intended to be a step-by-step replacement for the instructions, so please read the magazines carefully! Lastly, most of the parts appear to be very detailed, so I may only be painting a few things to be more accurate.

Below are links to the articles for my build:
