  1. Great solution to those awful PE stairs from the kit.... I'll steal that design from you ๐Ÿ˜
  2. Looking good. It's fun isn't it when things start to work out. I admire your patience continuing after a couple of drawback kits.... If you need any help in Swedish feel free to PM me. (Det kan vara svรฅrt ibland att uttrycka sig pรฅ ett annat sprรฅk) ๐Ÿ‘

    1:65 HMS Terror - OcCre

    It was your thread that got me going all in on this Terror thing. As mentioned elsewhere I came across your thread here and on Building HMS Terror . Shortly after this (a week or two) I stumbled over the book by Dan Simmons and then the TV series (where they hired you as historical advisor I believe it was) ... And two weeks later Occre released the kit... So, I read your blogg, listened to the audiobook, seen the series, read the book and building the model

    1:65 HMS Terror - OcCre

    I'm building this kit and I'm satisfied with most of it. The instructions could be a little more specific with measurements etc but you can work it out eventually... The plywood sheet with the smaller details I got was missing a couple of parts, production fault at Occre as I got one of the first kits from the factory. Occre sent me a new one within 3-4 days so good service there. Building sequence is all wrong for me, but that seems to be common with Occre kits. I ordered new blocks though... And the 2x4mm ramin as the supplied strip was enough for about half of what needed. I also skipped the metal you should use for the bow plating, too hard to handle, difficult to bend etc. I used the strips for the second planking and grain filling filler that gave the plates a distinct difference in texture from the hull. I payed 99โ‚ฌ from Occre and you get a lot to build for that price.
  5. I guess they call them that because they go around the gunports ๐Ÿ˜ Edit: Just found the missing strips... They had rolled behind the cupboard where I stack the boxes... ๐Ÿ™„
  6. She's looking great!!! Lovely detail! Did you have enough of the 2x5mm white wood strips called "gun port lining"? Instructions say I should have 56 of them left but I only have like 30...

    Yes, that's where it all started.... ๐Ÿ˜Š
  8. I was referring to the cleanliness of your workplace.... ๐Ÿ˜Š
  9. Do you have one worktable for building and one for taking photos? ๐Ÿ˜

    The TV series is as good as an adaption could be. Some things are altered but I could live with that.... The details are, as in the book, amazing. No build log, sorry...

    What have you received today?

    Todays catch: and (I'm not to fond of books with film cover but it was a lot cheaper than original cover so...) I've seen the series, listened to the audiobook, reading the book now and building the Occre model...
  12. Good, there is a biiig difference between 2 and 3 mm blocks. only 1 mm but it's one third of the size difference!!! If it's rounded blocks they appear even smaller than the square ones... (But you know all of this.... I'm just pretending being wise ๐Ÿ˜)
  13. How many mm are the blocks? You could always buy from here: clasic model
  14. And I have different barrels from you... ๐Ÿคจ

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
