R.M.S. Britannic

Passenger Liner

Plan Sheet Descriptions

This plan depicts Britannic in her mail run livery as she might have appeared had she survived WWI.   Specifications, plans and models were studied to reconstruct Britannic in her intended configuration.   Since this version was never realized, some license was taken in making assumptions about which features from the hospital ship configuration would have survived the conversion to her merchant livery.


Close-up views of the plan sheets below are not provided.  To see examples of the detail, go to the Titanic plan sheets where close-up details of the drawings are shown.

This plan sheet has plans of the “B” Deck deckhouses, showing exterior bulkhead, window, and door locations.  It also includes drawings of the forward well deck, aft well deck and docking bridge.

 

Britannic 8  Plan ordering code: RBR8 Price per sheet: $33 USD

This plan sheet has three separate drawings which comprise the hull contour lines.  Included are the body plan, sheer plan, and half breadth plan.

 

Britannic 9  Plan ordering code: RBR9 Price per sheet: $33 USD

This plan sheet is a drawing of the shell plate expansion.  This drawing has never been found among the Britannic drawings.  It was created using the Olympic framing plan and the Olympic shell plating plan.  The plan was modified from Olympic to reflect the increased breadth of Britannic.  The plan is of constant scale both vertically and horizontally.  All hull plates on the starboard side can be visualized in this expansion.  This plan will help the modeler in plating the hull.

Special Note: It should be noted that the shape of individual plates cannot be derived directly from the shell plating expansion.  The shell plating expansion shows the shape of plates in the x and y dimensions.  On the ship there is also curvature in the z dimension.  The shell plating expansion is at best a general guide to the individual plate shape.  The modeler will need to develop the true shape of individual plates directly on the ship.  The advantages of this drawing are that it shows all the seams, butts and doubling in one drawing.  As an aid to the modeler, notations have been added which show how an individual plate or strake is overlapped or overlaps those adjacent to it.

 

Special Note: Addenda changes shown at the end of the HMHS Britannic page also apply to RMS Britannic
