Making Your Titanic

Before You Start

You will need a sharp craft knife, and small pair of scissors and a ballpoint pen that has run out of ink. Stick the pieces together using contact adhesive (the sort that you spread onto each surface and leave to dry for a few moments before pressing the parts together).

Use a plastic cutting board or a thick sheet of cardboard to protect the surface you are working on. Work in a well-lit area where you can leave your model parts without them being damaged.

Remove the model pages from the book before cutting out the pieces. Read the instructions and look at the drawings to ensure you understand the assembly stages before starting to cut the parts. If you are not sure go back over the instructions.

Only cut the parts out as you need them. Cut along the solid black lines, pressing just enough to cut through the card. Cut slowly and carefully - mind your fingers!

Crease the dotted lines to fold the flaps. Gently run the ballpoint pen along the dotted line to make a mark, then go over it again to make a deeper crease. Try this on a piece of scrap card first to see how it works.

Do not apply glue straight from the tube. Use a strip of thick card as a narrow brush to spread the glue exactly where it is needed on the tab areas. Use these areas to position the parts.

Line up the parts before pressing them into place. Take your time, don’t rush, and check every step first.
