Supervised by Gordon Jennings, this film has a couple of shots of a miniature matching the full size ship featured more predominantly throughout. The miniature ship effects are employed for explosion and sinking scenes.
There is also a miniature set representing the cargo hold with silhouetted mattes of live action people placed over the top. When the explosion happens the mattes are not dense enough to prevent the background from bleeding through the silhouettes.
