Ages of Sail has more of this historic ship model kit in stock. And, since OcCre’s upcoming HMS Beagle kit is still in the “upcoming” stage and not yet available, I broke down and got one.

OcCre’s wooden model kit of the arctic exploration ship HMS Terror is back in stock at Ages of Sail!
The bad news is that the manufacturer increased the price of the kit, so our full retail price is now $209. However, the good news is that this is still an incredible value for a kit of this quality and detail. Also, to help out, we’re offering a special limited time pricing of only $188.10.
