The ship is built in 1.8:1 scale and is of her appearance she sported during her sea trials, as well as the apperance she had in 1915 during World War One. For her maiden voyage appearance, click this link: www.planetminecraft.com/project/rms-lusitania-1-8-1-scale/

The RMS Lusitania was a British ocean liner built by the John Brown shipyards for the Cunard Line. Lusitania and her sister ship, the Mauretania, were built as a counter to the company's rivals, the North German Lloyd Line and the British White Star Line. Lusitania's keel was laid on the 17th of August 1904 and launched two years later on the 7th of June, 1906. Lusitania was subsequently fitted out with interiors and sailed on her sea trials on the 27th of July, 1907. However, a big problem would arise in the form of extreme vibrations, mainly situated in her stern. This rendered the second class areas virtually uninhabitable on high speeds, so Lusitania was called back to John Brown and stiffened. Many beams, pillars and arches were incorporated into her interiors, but this did not fully solve the problem. Lusitania would never fully be rid of these vibrations, but they were greatly minimized over her career.

Lusitania arrived in Liverpool in the afternoon of September 7th, 1907 and began her maiden voyage later that evening. She first sailed to Queenstown to pick up more passengers, and then to New York. She arrived on the 13th of September. She did not capture the Blue Riband on her first voyage, having been delayed by fog, but she took the east-bound one on her return voyage. Lusitania did end up capturing the west-bound riband on her second round-trip voyage.

As the first world war broke out, Lusitania was requistioned as an armed merchant cruiser, altough she did not get the chance to serve in the war like her sister or any of her rival ships, like Britannic or Olympic. Lusítania remained and was one of very few ships still on the Atlantic run during the war.

Lusitania was on her 202nd voyage on the 7th of May, 1915 when at around 2:10 pm she was struck by a torpedo fired by the German submarine U-20. The liner immediately began to list and shortly afterwards a second explosion was heard around the area the torpedo hit. The crew immediately scrambled to load and launch the lifeboats, which turned out to be anything but successful. Of the 48 lifeboats on board, only six were launched successfully. Many people were killed on board the ship as well as in the water as some boats came loose and crushed people standing in the way. Just 18 minutes after the torpedo hit, Lusitania was gone. Only 764 people out of the 1962 on board survived. 1198 died.

Today, Lusitania lies at a depth of roughly 93 meters, and is in terrible condition. The wreck lays on its side and is barely recognisable. The superstructure has completely collapsed and her stern has been blown to bits by depth charges and salvaging of parts. The wreck's state is due to said reasons but also the extreme tides and weather coupled with corrosion of the hull.
