    The RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner operated by the White Star Line that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning hours of 15 April 1912, after striking an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Of the estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died, making the sinking one of modern history's deadliest peacetime commercial marine disasters. Built in Belfast, the Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time she entered service and was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners.

    Bancroft’s Elite Series of liners presents our 1/150 scale Titanic! Display this impressively majestic 70-inch long museum piece on your mantle or astonish your RC boat club with this functional RTR historic piece. Hundreds of parts are already assembled, painted, and installed for you. Delivered Ready to Run (RTR), the vessel can be sailing within minutes of arrival, using the included 2.4Ghz radio transmitter, 7.4v 2S LiPo battery, and charger. Only four AA batteries and minimal assembly is required. Embark on your first voyage in minutes!
    Positionable Fixtures

    Positionable hoisting cranes and lifeboats lend a sense of scale to this large RC vessel.
    Amazing Detail

    The Titanic's various decks are covered by large laser-cut and laser-etched decking, treated in a natural water-stabilized finish.
    Removeable Superstructure

    The primary superstructure is molded around one central base that can be removed with two hands. Simply lift the superstructure vertically to access the interior electronics bay to plug in the main battery and turn the system on.
    Extensive Rigging

    The Titanic boasts an extensive array of rigging that adds an exquisite level of scale realism to this functional museum piece.

    This 1/150 scale representation of the Titanic is in part faithfully represented by all the countless fine details that would have been found on the deck as she sailed to her fate.

    Bancroft model boats are molded and hand finished using very intricate details and parts including metal, wood, plastic, and fiberglass. Because of their hand made nature, minor imperfections in the fiberglass, metalwork, or painting may exist. These potential imperfections will not affect the seaworthiness of the vessel or the overall scale boating experience. Bancroft scale RC boats are fragile so care should be taken when moving or transporting your model.

    Some of the electronics in this Bancroft boat, including the Battery, ESC, Motor, and Receiver, are NOT intended to get wet; they are NOT water resistant. If any of these electronic components get wet and you attempt to operate your model, the water can cause an electrical short-circuit and void your warranty. In the rare instance that you get water inside your vessel, you should drain the water completely and allow all electronics to fully dry before attempting to operate your model.

    Well, well. Surprise, surprise. This is bigger news than last night's debate! The larger scale Titanic that so many modelers (myself included) have been waiting for (but weren't aware was coming from Motion). Why the big secret? Okay, it's off to the piggy bank to start counting up my pennies...! I want this model!

      Brass props or plastic? Plastic props at this price point would be a disappointment.
      All wood decks or are some plastic like the smaller one?

      Ready to pull the trigger!

            Well, the 'new' 1/150 version Titanic is on its way to me from MotionRC. If it meets expectations, I will likely run and display it at the September 15, 2024 'Model Boats on Parade' gala event hosted by San Francisco Model Yacht Club at Spreckels Lake, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco (sfmyc.org).
            Check back here before September 15. I will post my first impressions, observations, comments for Motion and Bancroft to consider (in the spirit of continuous improvement), and maybe even toss in a few personal opinions in my 'for what it's worth' remarks.
            Hoping this 'second time is the charm', Ron.

              Does the ship come with metal props on this larger scale version?

                I just purchased my Titanic 1/150 model! I had wanted the 1/200 model for the longest time, but I didn't buy it and now I'll get the bigger one! This is technically the largest Titanic model available to purchase right? so excited!! Does anyone know of a clear display box for this model?

                    Thank you for the video review! I am so glad you were able to show both models to compare the sizes! It’s truly amazing. If you find a display box for the larger titanic please let me know! Thank you!!

                      Glad everyone got something out of the YT video!

                      WARNING: Verify the cofferdams the have over the holes drilled in the bottom of the hull haven't lost their integrity due to shipping strain. My aft one leaked, enough my son commented on her liat getting worse during ballasting. Caught it early, used the shipping bolt chopped down in size and the compressible washer with plumbing tape and we are all set. Easy fix. So far it's still a little light with 16 pounds of ballast in her. Maiden review coming soon

                        The 1/150 Titanic has arrived (actually, it showed up much earlier than expected). But the California heat wave took out my old A/C the day it arrived, so it's taken until today (7/9) for me to unbox it (in a tolerable temperature/environment). Like it so far. Will return soonest with more substantive remarks. Cheers, Ron
