RMS Titanic is a project on LEGO CUUSOO created by Ssorg on October 8th, 2011. He is collaborating with GlenBricker on this project.  It is a representation of the Titanic, the historic ship which was sunk by an iceberg.

The famous TITANIC would make a magnificent LEGO set! Although the anniversary passed already, the fame and legacy of Titanic is not going anywhere, and this LEGO set would help to keep her memory floating forever. :)

So here's my proposal for a LEGO Titanic set, a digital design made with MLCAD, most pictures rendered with LDView and POV-Ray. Naturally I'd love to present an actual physical model instead of CAD work, but I don't have all the pieces to build it, and frankly some brick types used here in these colors are not available at all (not manufactured by LEGO so far).

For the big one, using various combinations of only a few different printed brick types could allow detailed enough window patterns on the walls of upper decks. LEGO has done it before with their ferry sets like this one: common bricks with window patterns printed on them.

As for the smaller version, stickers are the most likely option (large ones on both sides plus a few small ones here and there, like for the bridge for example).

Final set could also include many strings attached to the masts. Digital designing doesn't easily support such work, so I chose not to add any here.

I worked hard to make both dimensions and details as accurate as humanly possible in this scale. Below a comparison between my designs and the real thing. Not bad, huh? he Titanic plan image is taken (with permission) from here.here.

Concerning the price of a set like this... The rather common price-per-part ratio of $0.1 likely doesn't apply here, as bigger the set is, lower tends to be the PpP ratio. For instance, 3450 Statue of Liberty was $200 with 2882 pieces (PpP $0.069), and 10189 Taj Mahal was $300 with 5922 pieces (PpP $0.05). With a PpP ratio of around $0.6, for example, the big Titanic with around 4,000 pieces could cost near $250.

As for the smaller version, perhaps a good set for comparison would be 10177 Boeing 787 Dreamliner. That one was $80 with 1197 pieces. The smaller Titanic with around 1,300 pieces (display stand included) would probably cost more or less $95.

However, everyone please keep in mind that with every CUUSOO project the final design is up to LEGO, and the price is then determined by the production costs of the final product!

Regardless of such details, Titanic like this would be a great Lego set:

So let us all support this idea, so that this model doesn't have to sink into oblivion but rather can sail safely to a harbour of every home! :D

It certainly wouldn't make sense for a model of the titanic to be anything less than, well, titanic! You've really specced this out in terms of cost, brick count, and size, nicely done. The only remaining question is....how many lifeboats would the model come with? ;) Good luck on your journey to 10,000 supporters!
