Satya's blog - Puzz3D Titanic jigsaw puzzle
Puzz3D makes nice three-dimensional jigsaw puzzles. You put together flat sections of foam-backed puzzle pieces, then assemble them into a 3-D model. So I bought the Titanic in December 2005 on eBay. The box arrived very nicely wrapped:
The flat bits of the funnels, the hull and the deck were assembled in a couple of days. The brown bits are the deck pieces. The funnels, of which there are four -- I think one was decorative on the original -- are four-sided (oval in the original?) so there are sixteen of those sections, each assembed out of three pieces. Took a while to sort them out.
Here are all the flat bits completed, and assembly of the 3D model can begin.
Here's the 3D model. The hull is kinda hard to hold together while pressing bits of foam jigsaws. Hence the inner detail; the 'bulkhead' sections fore and aft as seen in the first picture below:
And the fully-assembled Puzz3D Titanic model:
