The Undersea City of Titanica
This is a photo record of my building of a model of the Undersea
Kingdom of the WASP's greatest foe, the Mighty Titan!
As you can see from the shots of the 'real' thing, I've tried to get the
rather bizarre look and feel of the original Derek Meddings model from
the TV series. Quite what they had in mind when they were building it....
I'm not sure! But - with the aid of the most expensive components I could
find (I probably spent £80 on cork and EMA plastic tubing and so
forth: abou tthe same as was spent in 1963 on the original, I expect)
I set about the task.
Apart from "Expenso-pipe", the model also contains the odd piece
of household rubbish (room freshner, electric rasor head cleaner and so
Some of this can be better seen in the two shots near the bottom of this
page which show the model during construction and before painting.
