Re: Trumpeter & Titanic's Stem
I don't see anything that makes me think the angle is less severe than originally discussed here and elsewhere. That being said, my opinion is that the angle is about five degrees more than it should have been. I suppose when everyone opens up their kits they will have to decide whether or not to fix it, or to leave it alone. If you have the room--or are willing to make the room--and you love the subject--I say go for it.
It was pointed out by another observer that the apparent angle seen in the pics of the new model could be a camera distortion. Titanic's stem was nearly, but not completely, vertical. There is a youtube video with more pics of the model and it looks better than the first pics we saw.
