Re: Replica of Titanic

They''ve been building it for years:

"The Romandisea Titanic is an under-construction replica of the original RMS Titanic, located in landlocked Sichuan province, China. The rebuild project was first reported by media in October 2013[2] and formally launched in January 2014.[3] The ship will be the same size as the original Titanic,[4] hence 269 meters in length and 28 meters wide. "

Re: Replica of Titanic

this project was started by australian mining billionaire and politician clive palmer

however clive has had a 'few' problems and likely down to his last 100 mill, so i'd guess the yard has had to either fund the completion themselves or find another sucker

cheers,

Different replica. Nothing to do with Clive's yet to be started plan.

For a theme park.

Wonder what the theme is. Sinking feelings?
