unbelievable!! I just realized that two hours went in a blink of an eye while looking through this topic. loved the research and history part (spent even more time reading through various articles). also, congrats on being a part of the AMC show! I can't imagine what was it like for you to take a walk on the ship you so painstakingly researched. just wow!

I found the Occre kit from a shop in England and ordered it on Monday. I see they scaled it down to 1:65 or something there about. I have not seen this kit for sale in the USA yet.

I believe that Ages of Sale, one of the sponsors of this forum has the model, but they may be out of stock, it's been a couple of weeks since I checked on it. Let us know you opinion on the kit when you get it, very interested in your findings,

I did not check Ages of Sail specifically. Rather, I did a Google search for kit vendors. They may very well have it. But the cost with shipping from England was quite reasonable I thought, a grand total of just $138.

I'll post some photos of the kit contents once I receive it.

I'll have a review of that for you by the close of Saturday.

I bought the Occre kit from Ages of Sail today here in the States...should arrive next week.  It is a retirement gift to myself and I plan to work on it beginning later this year.  It appears to be a good buy.  I have been fascinated by HMS Terror and HMS Erebus since doing a report on them back in junior high school in the early 70's.  And now I have a kit on the way to my house.  None of this would have been possible without you and your simply amazing work.  Thank you so, so much.  I'm sure I will get a lot of enjoyment from this.

My copy of the OcCre Terror kit just arrived today from Always Hobbies in England. I must say it was processed and shipped quickly as my order was just placed on August 7. Total cost of the kit with shipping included was less than $139. Very pleased with the kit and the service of the hobby shop.
