Minicraft Model Ships 1/350 RMS Olympic Transatlantic Ocean Liner 1913 Kit
This new kit offers a 1/350 scale model of the venerable RMS Olympic first placed in service in 1911. Truly the queen of the seas for the day, Olympic began operation almost a year before her sister ship Titanic made her ill-fated maiden voyage and sailed into history as the most famous maritime disaster of all time. Unlike Titanic, Olympic operated for over 24 year before being scrapped in the nineteen thirties. This new kit includes new tooling for parts appropriate for the Olympic including the open promenade deck and other assorted details. It represents the Olympic as she appeared in 1913, having been modified by the addition of lifeboats and other safety equipment that was demonstrated to be necessary by the tragic loss of life on Titanic.
