Few people, besides scientists and James Cameron, have ever explored the wreck of the Titanic. And even if we were capable of withstanding the pressure at 12,460ft below, simple maths tells us we'd need to spend the rest of our natural lives in decompression. Thus, we recommend exploring its cursed beauty via the medium of this 1:200-scale cardboard model. Taschen's Build Your Own Titanic, released to mark the 100th anniversary of the doomed voyage, comes with pre-cut pieces and reassuringly adroit instructions. Once finished, it measures 1.35m long. The real thing took just under three years to assemble; we suspect this would take about the same.
