I actually have an HMS Terror that I acquired back when the kit was first introduced. I also had a nice email exchange with Matthew Betts, whose research the kit was based upon. In fact, I’m the person who alerted OcCre to their initial scale error, as it was originally claimed to be something like 1/65 scale, but turned out to actually be 1/75.
In any case, I got the kit mostly to study OcCre kit design. But, I did actually work on it. I may actually pick it up again and continue the build, especially after seeing this cool build video.
What is particularly of interest to me are the 3D printed figures that are featured here. I think I’ll try to get these made and see if they inspire me to look again at this build. HMS Terror is, after all, an incredibly interesting subject.
The latest video work from TOM’S Modelling in Motion brings us a 4-1/2 minute build of the Arctic expedition ship HMS Terror, one of two ships that disappeared while searching for the Northwest Passage in 1845, the other being HMS Erebus. The video takes us rapidly through the model, seemingly building itself, while educating us about the story of the ship and crew.
One thing that’s interesting about Tom’s build is his use of some specially designed 3D printed figures which are prominently displayed at the start of the video. Apparently, these figures are available as a file download for your 3D printer for a very reasonable price. Of course, you’ll need your own 3D printer or service to create them.
