Featuring 9,090 pieces, 10294 Titanic measures over a metre long and approaches the engineering icon at a smaller but detailed scale. To help explain the history of the source ship, Andrew Skinner from the Southampton SeaCity Museum was invited as a guest to the designer video, making this a rare appearance of someone not from the LEGO Group appearing in one.
“We have the forward mast with a lookout point and then there’s an American flag on the top of that mast,” explained designer Mike Psiaki. “That flag has 46 stars because, in April of 1912, the US flag only had 46 stars on it. This is the level of detail that we’re talking about in this model.”
“Another detail in this set that I’m excited for is the flags. Our Graphic Designer Joanna designed the flags using plastic foil, and then we print on one side of the foil but because it’s transparent you can see the flag from both sides. It also means that we can make a super tiny but detailed flag which helps sell the scale of this massive ship.”
