The Titanic was a British Olympic class passenger liner that became infamous for her collision with an iceberg on 14 April 1912 and dramatic sinking on 15 April 1912. The second of a trio of superliners, Titanic and her sisters were designed to provide a three-ship weekly express service and dominate the transatlantic travel business for the White Star Line.
Titanic was 882 feet 9 inches (269 m) long and 92 feet 6 inches (28 m) at the beam (6 inches longer than twin ship RMS Olympic). She had a Gross Register Tonnage of 46,328 tons, and a height from the water line to the boat deck of 60 feet (18 m). She contained two reciprocating four-cylinder, triple-expansion, inverted steam engines and one low-pressure Parsons turbine. These powered three propellers. There were 25 double-ended and 4 single-ended Scotch-type boilers fired by 159 coal burning furnaces that made possible a top speed of 23 knots (43 km/h). Only three of the four 63 foot (19 m) tall funnels were functional; the fourth, which served only as a vent, was added to make the ship look more impressive. Titanic could carry a total of 3,547 passengers and crew and, because she carried mail, her name was given the prefix RMS (Royal Mail Steamer) as well as SS (Steam Ship).
The Titanic was launched 31 May 1911 and its maiden voyage began 10 April 1912.
On 1 September 1985, Robert Ballard of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution finally found the Titanic. When the wreck was discovered by Robert Ballard and his crew, they found that the ship did in fact break in two as it sank. It was theorized that as the Titanic sank, the stern rose out of the water. It supposedly rose so high that the unsupported weight caused the ship to break in half, the crack starting at the upper deck. This became the accepted theory.
In 2005, new evidence suggested that in addition to the expected side damage, the ship also had sustained damage to the bottom of the hull (keel). This new evidence seemed to support a less popular theory that the crack which broke the Titanic in two started at the keel plates. This proposition is supported by Jack Thayer`s sketches.
In 1997, James Cameron made his epic movie about the Titanic`s maiden voyage. At the time, it was the most expensive movie ever made... some said it cost more than the Titanic itself! The movie went on to become the #1 top-grossing movie of all time and was the first movie ever to gross more than $1 billion (US) at the box office. The movie also won 11 Academy Awards, including "Best Picture" and "Best Director".
.: Product Features :.
This model is made entirely of 3-point polygons.
The detail in this model is "titanic" at over 550,000 polygons.
All three Propellers can rotate.
The ERC dial on the BODY rotates all three propellers at same time as well as rotating the left and right propeller in opposite directions (to prevent the ship from pitching to one side).
The rudder can move left and right (with an ERC dial on the BODY).
The model will load into the scene at full size, in relation to the Poser people. You can then move the ship down (or your people up) to create scenes of the people on the decks.
If you want to render a scene without people, simply reset the size of the Titanic model back to 100%.
Please keep in mind that this model was originally designed for distance shots. Although it has been tested to work fine in Poser, some textures may looked pixellated or blurred when viewed close-up.

Nicely detailed - and HUGE. At 66 MB (that`s the .obj file), this is not for every machine - it took almost a full minute to load with my 2.7 GHZ Duo Core machine running 4 GB of RAM and a RADEON X1600 with 512 MB of V-RAM. Moving the camera in Poser is cumbersome - you`ll want to use the parameter dials rather than the mouse. I have not yet attempted to load any human figures, but suspect that anything bigger than a basic P4 figure will probably cause most machines to choke.
It would not load into Daz Studio on my machine.
These issues understood, it renders quite nicely - even fairly close up. It`s a nice addition to any 3d artist`s nautical collection.
