Think the movie Titanic made a splash? Well, wait until you see this precision-crafted, historically accurate, pre-painted, floatable plastic model that can also fill with water, break in two, and sink--just like the real thing! Packaged with a book that explores the remarkable feats of engineering that went into the ship's construction as well as the engineering flaws that led to the disaster, The Science and Story of Titanic offers children a hands-on introduction to the history and principles of ship building and a look at rare, authentic documents, memorabilia, and photographs from Titanic specialist Steve Santini's private collection.

We were pleasantly surprised to learn that after completing the detailed scale model, one of our imaginative and intrepid eight-year old testers has not stopped playing with the sinking Titanic-in the bathtub. The submersible boat is fun, durable and well equipped with play value.
The model is accompanied by The Science and Story of Titanic; a thorough, well illustrated history of the construction, the sinking, and the recent explorations of Titanic's wreckage. A 2000 Parents' Choice® Recommended winner.
