  1. Hello guys, due to the fascinating Franklin Expedition story I reached the icey shore of all these books about the HdSstrangly collapsed Franklin expedition from a german manga towards deep scientific books during the last few month. And it all started with tgus NMM booklet. I don't want to overstrech my abilities again and do start the kit of HMS TERROR by OcCre. Due to the fact that HMS EREBUS is also a bomb ship and only 3 feet longer I think about altering the kit from TERROR towards EREBUS by the inlay of a (304,8mm × 3 {length}) / 75 {scale} so 12,192mm{exactly} making a 12,2mm thick bulkhead. Cutting the centerboard and deck inseting the bulkhead beaveling the hole thing into shape with sand paper - sounds easy but is it like this? I also need to fill the space between the bulkheads at all to get a proper surface for the planking. By this I will earn a pair if surfaces I can glue the lengthening bulkhead inbetween. So the hull hopefully is a sold thing to work with again. The kit is quite rough in deck detail and the changes will be planed from the survived model in the NMM with the correct colour sheme of 1845 and some books about wrecks with deckplans inside. We also habe some beautyfull renderings from the recent situation of the wreck coming from sonar pictures and photographs of the real wreck. So is this a possible way to go? Or am I on a completly wrong track?
  2. HMS Terror and HMS Erebus, Ross Expedition, 1839-1843. This is my latest installment of my program of scratch building all of the famous Antarctic exploration ships in small scale. The first I built was S/Y Endurance and the second being James Caird. HMS Terror and HMS Erebus were made famous on the Franklin Expedition, but a few years before that mess they were charting Antarctica with James Ross. The ships are made with basswood hulls, basswood gunwales, planked wood decks (yes, planked), with aluminum, brass, and stainless steel masts, and various other scratch built parts. I wanted to keep each ship to about 1 inch, so I chose 1/950 scale.
