During it’s first, maiden voyage, on the night of April 14-15, 1912, on the Southampton-Cherbourg-Queenstown-New York route, the British transatlantic Royal Mail Steamer (RMS) Titanic collided with an iceberg and sank. This accident is one of the most well-known maritime disasters and the subject of many conspiracy theories. As many as 892 crewmembers served the ship. It was 268.99 meters long and 29.41 meters wide. It was deemed a technical miracle of the beginning of the 20th century.
The wreck of Titanic was discovered in 1985 (more than 70 years after the disaster) during a Franco-American expedition and US military mission. The ship was split in two and is gradually disintegrating at a depth of 12,415 feet (2,069.2 fathoms; 3,784 m). Thousands of artefacts have been recovered and displayed at museums around the world. Titanic has become one of the most famous ships in history, depicted in numerous works of popular culture, including books, folk songs, films, exhibits, and memorials. Titanic is the second largest ocean liner wreck in the world, only being surpassed by her sister ship HMHS Britannic, however, she is the largest sunk while in service as a liner, as Britannic was in use as a hospital ship at the time of her sinking. The final survivor of the sinking, Millvina Dean, aged two months at the time, died in 2009 at the age of 97.
The ship model consists of 2,840 blocks and is the largest construction block set in the history of COBI. Once completed, it is 92 cm long (36.25”), 10 cm wide (4”) and 28 cm high (11”). It is faithfully reproduced in 1: 300 scale using the smallest details and carefully follows the shape and design of its legendary original. It weighs a total of about 4.5 kg (10 pounds). This set will be the ultimate challenge for all block builders. It does not require gluing or painting, and all graphics and inscriptions are applied to the blocks in the form of very durable prints that do not wear off or fade under the influence of the sun, water or even very intense fun. No stickers were used in the model. The set is intended for people over 10 years of age. It will certainly give a lot of satisfaction to both the youngest fans of blocks and adult enthusiasts of history and maritime art. The set also includes a special black base with a plate with the name of the ship.
