When the replica plans were first announced, it sparked a controversy because the design included a simulation of Titanic being hit to the iceberg which led the ship to sink back in April 15,1912. Around 1,500 people’s lives were lost in the incident.

Schnell aims to get as close as possible to the original design. He may not be able to produce every room on the ship accurately, but he has ensured that everything will be kept historically accurate.

The aim is to make sure everything is accurately made
