This new kit was just announced on the Ages of Sail website. I don’t really know about their other kits, but this appears to be a step up in authenticity for OcCre, as it’s based on the work of ship modeler Matthew Betts, who put in a lot of time and effort researching the ship, which he details on his own blog: http://buildingterror.blogspot.ca
Anyway, at $149, this 1/65-scale kit (close enough to the popular 1/64 scale, otherwise known as 3/16″=1′) seems like a very good deal.
I just started watching the episodes of The Terror, which are airing now and AMC, and this should generate some interest in this ship and this kit. I hope it does well.
We just received our first shipment of the newest kit coming out of the Spanish ship model kit maker OcCre, HMS Terror.
HMS Terror was a Royal Navy Arctic exploration ship which, together with HMS Erebus, set out in 1845 under the command of Sir John Franklin to find the Northwest Passage. This ships never returned, and for 168 years, nothing was known about the fate of the expedition. Then in 2016 the wreck of HMS Terror was finally discovered.
This authentically scaled model from OcCre is based on the work of the talented ship modeler Matthew Betts, who’s scratch built model of HMS Terror can be seen in detail on his blog site http://buildingterror.blogspot.ca.
