Titanic! Hornby Model Box Art Series

Mike takes on a legend in this painting - the R.M.S Titanic. Sunk by an iceberg on April 15th, 1912, the Titanic is almost certainly the most well known passenger ship in history, and went down with a loss of 1,517 souls.

Mike has this to to say about the image: The Titanic shown early in her tragic maiden voyage.  Everyone else seemed to have depicted her on that fateful night, surrounded by icebergs and lifeboats.  I was looking for an illustration the would set this one apart from the rest.  

I think he succeeded. Below is a link to see the finished box art and order the model kit.
