Titanic Fanatic 93

Hi I'm Will, I'm nineteen years old and I've been interested in the Titanic since I saw the 1997 film Titanic, when I was four years old. I decided to make a Tumblr and post stuff about the Titanic. I hope to join the Titanic Historical Society someday.

This is a plaque from one of Titanic’s lifeboats. Only 13 lifeboats were taken aboard the Carpathia on April 15th so only 26 ‘SS TITANIC’ plaque have ever been recovered.  The dark wood was obviously attached later to make a nice presentation piece. 

I apologise for not getting the full plaque in the picture but it was in a rotating case and I looked like a total fool trying to chase it around to get a good picture.

Here’s some photos of the miniatures used in the break up and final plunge sequences of the 1997 film Titanic.  The miniatures are really well made I have to admit. However I don’t understand how so many people don’t look at these two scenes and think “how is physics even allowing this?” The physics are completely unrealistic. I don’t care how much buoyancy the aft half of the ship had. There’s no way it could have just sat there at 45 degrees with over 300 feet of ship sticking out of the water. Further more the stern couldn’t float at a 90 degree angle by its self after the break up. Why would any one think that 100 feet of ship would just magically float there standing straight up?

This rant probably makes me sound like I hate this movie, but don’t get me wrong I don’t entirely hate it. In fact Titanic use to be my favorite movie as a kid, however now that I’m older I see all of the physics flaws and inaccuracies, and then I get annoyed. I just wish the sinking sequence could have been less over dramatic and more realistic.
