Olympic-class Ocean Liner HMHS Britannic Free Ship Paper Model DownloadThis ship paper model is the HMHS Britannic, the third and largest Olympic-class ocean liner of the White Star Line, the papercraft was created by Ralph Currell, and the finished model by Jerry Vondeling. The scale of the paper ship is in 1:1200, and the completed model is approximately 9 inches in length.

The HMHS Britannic was the sister ship of RMS Olympic and RMS Titanic, and was intended to enter service as a transatlantic passenger liner. She was launched just before the start of the First World War and was laid up at her builders in Belfast for many months before being put to use as a hospital ship in 1915. She was shaken by an explosion, caused by an underwater mine, in the Kea Channel off the Greek island of Kea on the morning of 21 November 1916, and sank with the loss of 30 lives.

There were 1,066 people on board, with 1,036 survivors taken from the water and lifeboats; roughly an hour later, at 9:07 AM, the ship sank. In spite of Britannic being the biggest ship lost in the First World War, her sinking was not as costly in terms of loss of human life as were the sinking of RMS Titanic and Cunard's RMS Lusitania, or many ships lost in the First World War.
