Miniature RMS Titanic Paper Model

To call this paper model of the RMS Titanic a "miniature Titanic" seems like something of an oxymoron. :) Because I have so very limited information on the model, I hesitated to post about it, but in the end the coolness factor of the project pushed me to go ahead. Here is what I know about the model... It was created in 2011 by a Japanese designer whose name may be "Masayui". The paper model is atypical in that it was designed to be printed on color paper rather than white paper. Due to the small scale of the model, a paper thickness of .22 mm or thinner is recommended. The colors of paper required are as follows:

・グレー (gray) 70% 
・グレー (gray) 50% 
・くるみ (dark brown) 
・べに (dark red) 
・ベージュ (beige) 
・ひまわり (sunflower) 

I don't know the scale of the model (so don't bother asking). A download of the PNG template for the ship may be found here. Partial photo instructions may be found here.  The Titanic sank on her maiden voyage in 1912.
