Will the non pax spaces be receiving attention also?


Unfortunately I'm not sure if the software can handle the potential file size - I'm almost at 70 mb so far with about about 25% of the detail I want to add.  Also, I am relying heavily on personal photos, QSF photos and others from the internet where the availability for non-pax spaces is very limited.  I could probably do general arrangement but certainly not to the extent of the detail in the pax spaces.

Amazing progress Bob!

We should restart the Zoom calls, and you could take us for a tour of your model??

What a phenomenal undertaking this is Bob! I could picture the ship's external shapes and arrangement to make a model, but attending to details of interior doors, balustrades, bulkheads, spaces etc etc is in another league altogether. Congratulations on this project - it is fascinating to watch.

I did some work on the Columbia Restaurant doors.  Here are two pictures of closed doors and open doors to get some perspective.  I may have to take a week or so off to clean up the model and reduce the file size.  I'm approaching an unstable size with a lot of the ship and details to go.

Good piece of work - hope you have it backed up as you have put in so much effort

New dilemma with a plea for help!

I'm currently working on Stairway E and noted that between 2 Deck and 1 Deck that there is one extra step on Stairway E than I have on Stairway D.  I have Stairway D with 17 steps between the two decks (stepping off 2 deck - 5 steps to the 1st landing, 7 steps to the 2nd landing - 5 steps to the 1 Deck landing) and Stairway E with 18 steps (stepping off 2 Deck - 8 steps to the 1st landing - 5 steps to the 2nd landing - 5 steps to the 1 deck landing.

I have been able to accurately count the number of steps between each landing for both D and E on various photos but had to make a guess for the number of steps between D stairway's 2nd landing and the 1 Deck landing; there are no photos that I can find that show this.

I am either off by one step on D or the ship's deck has one step riser's difference in height between D and E stairway on 1 Deck.



Does anyone have a photo, drawing or a memory that could help?



P.S - I can't trust the general arrangement deck drawings as I have found the number of stairs in photos to be inconsistent with the drawings.

Bob

These are not much help but they are the only ones I have online. I have hundreds of photos of the staircases but they're not scanned. I will try and scan One to Two Deck for you but that probably won't be until the weekend.

I counted 238 steps on D Stairway and 220 steps total on E Stairway.

Thanks Michael.  A photo of Stairway D that shows the number of steps between the 2nd landing from 2 Deck to the 1 Deck landing is what I am looking for.  I’d be eternally grateful if you could find one in your collection!

Sorry, Bob! I thought you wanted E Stairway. I have two shots online I can attach now of D between Two and One Decks - I count 17 steps??

Perfect Michael.  Yes it is 17 steps from 2 Deck to 1 Deck on D stairway.  Just as I had counted before but now verified with that great photo. 

However the dilemma still stands as to why there are 18 steps between 2 Deck and 1 Deck on Stairway E.  Hmmm....

And I just verified that there are 8 steps on Stairway E from the 2 deck landing going up to the 1st landing but I cant tell for sure how many steps there are from the 2nd landing to 1 Deck but I am assuming five (5) - see the photo entitle "Oct Nov 2008 (4) 647.jpg).  If more than 5, that throws things off even more.


I'll figure it out eventually.  This is the fun part.

Bob - I will get out my hard copy prints as soon as I can and see if they can answer this puzzle. I have just counted 17 steps on G Stairs between Two and One Decks!
