  1. This HMS Terror will be my second build, first build was the Golden Hind by OcCre (DanielD Golden Hind) which I just finished 10/2020. I chose the HMS Terror by OcCre because I was pleased with the Golden Hind by OcCre, which was a level 2, entry level project for someone new to wood modeling. The HMS Terror is a level 3 model requiring more skills in that there are fewer pre-made parts and more rigging. I’m excited to start this project.
  2. after seeing the hms terror build logs on here especially keith s build i made a start. have always had a fascination with the story of the north west passage and when occre released this it was a must despite the compromises with the kit. frames glued in place but deck still loose. also glued in the filling pieces between frames at bow and stern building slip to help keep the keel straight while planking don't know when next update will be as Victory taking priority at the mo! Take care all keith
  3. Hi all again, i'll try to put some photos about my current Project, step by step. I think it's not difficult model but they have a lot of job (and time, and fun,...). They Will be painted at black/white traditional pattern like the original boat, this is a challenge for me because i have no experience painting Wood. First, the deck finished with matte varnish not colored. I'm giving a small curvature to the stern mirror (i think this word is not correct...) Second, i'm testing chalk paint brown color (chocolate) for inside, i'll try to put first layer brown and a
  4. The shipyard is open. The kit arrived today. In my new member post I suggested that Canada Post might be slow. They were fine, USPS took 13 days from L.A. to the border. There was some damage in shipping. The false keel was crunched at the stern. Pictures and fix below and the parts box let all the little eyelets and rings circulate through the box and the shrink wrap. Just about every length of brass bar was bent or crimped. I am ready to go and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions. Broden
  5. After spending the last couple of months gathering tools, and more importantly, information, I feel comfortable enough to start a build log. HMS Terror is my first try at wooden model ship building, though I have had plenty of experience working with plastic kits, as well as working with wood on a somewhat larger scale. Next to build logs on this site and elsewhere, in a variety of languages, I studied Occre's tutorial videos and finally, when the ship arrived as an early Christmas present, the plans. Honestly speaking, the plans took some figuring out , as I'm used to Tamiya kits
  6. I am late to the terror party but I figured I’d add my build log to the pile and see what happens. Bulkheads went up easy and the deck was pleasing to build. I penciled in the caulking. The YouTube videos show some sanding after this but it just seemed to smear my pencil around so I aborted this plan. Sprayed with satin urethane. Then set out to label all the parts. One huge difference between ship and plastic models (at least for this one) is the “parts” list seems to be all the parts you need for each sub-assembly and not a straight list of parts in the kit. I seem to go back and forth betwe
  7. Hi all Intreduced myself in newcomers area and got a suggestion to start a build log. This is basicly my first real wooden ship build. Started Bounty Constructo 10 years ango and almost finished the hull planking but qualitybwas terrible. I chose HMS Terror based on reviews and size of the ship. I think it will give me the basics of building and also test my nerve. At the moment I have finished 1st planking and didnsomeminitial rough test sanding. Im happy with the outcome taken into account its my first build. Im not uet sure if i paint
  8. It was suggested to me when I joined earlier this month that I should start a build log so here goes. This is my first wooden model but I have some prior experience with plastic models. So far I have completed the first layer of planking of the ship which after much sanding and application of wood filler seems to be shaping up nicely. The next stage is the second layer of planking. I have probably made many mistakes already but I am learning as I go.
  9. 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 12,192
  10. Hi all Having completed my last build, the Lady Nelson and being pretty chuffed with the outcome, I'm moving on to the next which arrived today. My nephew has been fascinated with my last build and has been begging me to make a boat for him so i let him have a look through a list of models and pick one he likes. He saw HMS terror and said 'I'm a terror, I want that one' so thats the one he gets. It also seems like a decent natural progression to move from a single masted ship to a double masted with the extra complexity that brings. The box arrived today a
  11. Hello from Canada. Quick bio, I am retired, have been woodturning for about 35 years as a hobby. I have built lots of kit models mostly planes and HO rail items. The only ship was the USS Constitution, which languished at the rigging stage about 30 years ago. The Covid shut down led to a lot of YouTube videos mostly of folks building real sail boats “ Acorn to Arrabella” and “Restoring the Tally Ho” to mention two and some kit models ship videos. Then I stumbled on the kit for HMS Terror. Now if you are Canadian with ancestors who were Royal Navy and you loved the C.S
  12. So I was a little bit scared to start a build log in the face of all the amazing work on the forum. But if you don't try, you don't learn. And after all no-one might read it and it'll just be a personal log for me to document my wins and losses. So here goes..... HMS Terror. Pretty early stages at the moment. I have the bulkhead and deck assembled and the seemingly endless deck planking done. The transom is attached and I have the bulwarks clamped and bending as we speak. I've given the deck a wash of tobacco brown stain that I have for one of my othe
  13. Hi everyone, I'm building the OCCRE HMS Terror model. This is my first ship model, and I described the reasons for wanting to build her in my "new member" introduction. I'm actually a fair ways along with this model, but have reached the point where I have questions about details and Royal Navy standard practice from that era, in an attempt to make my model as accurate as I can. Also I see other people are building this model, and I hope to trade notes with them as I go along. I guess I'll make a series of posts to start off, to show the various stages I went through to get the model to the po
  14. Hello all. I’ve been looking at kits again after completing my little Hannah (well,nearly, I’m still waiting for resin to finish water and need to clean the bottle). I really like old ships, with sails and rigging etc. Since I’ve only built Hannah (and it took me nearly 5 years) it’s fair to say I’m very new to the hobby. I do have some experience with other models - wooden aircraft and plastic minis - so I thought I might as well jump into deeper waters when it comes to my first proper build. I have been reading various build logs here for last few days and couldn’t make my
  15. This is my first ship build other than the odd plastic kit version. I normally build plastic kits, mainly aircraft but over the past 12 months my modelling mojo has deserted me and I’ve only finished two builds. I mentioned the above to @James H and he said he would send me something completely different. How pleased was I when this beauty arrived in the post complete with a keel clamp and plank nipper that James didn’t need anymore. When finish she’s supposed to look like this: so I sat down at my bench and this after got a good start.
  16. Hello, this is my 1st build. I had only ever made airfix kits in the past (a long time ago) and they always went wrong, with the wings dropping off and the like. I found the Terror kit and thought this would be a good start. I could practise and discover if (1) I could do this, (2) enjoy doing this and get the equipment I need as I am going along. So everything is new to me and I am sure there will be lots of mistakes. But I hope lots of fun. The skeleton went together easily. The instructions are more pictures showing the order to make it with very little actual instruction. Without the
  17. I'm starting this log on my HMS Terror build. I didn't find this site until last week, so my build is in process. DRY FITTING THE KEEL: WOW!! Looks great. I've been making some progress on my Terror and doing some reading. I've uncovered an issue with the shroud lines. The way Occre show to install them is totally incorrect. They show the shrouds being run through the gap between the lower masts and the upper masts, then evening them up on both sides of the ship. From what I've seen on line and in Mastini,s book, the shrouds should go
  18. 1:65 HMS Terror OcCre Catalogue # 12004 Available from OcCre for 99,95€ HMS Terror was a Vesuvius-class bomb ship built over two years at the Davy shipyard in Topsham, Devon, for the Royal Navy. Her deck was 31 m (102 ft) long, and the ship measured 325 tons burthen. The vessel was armed with two heavy mortars and ten cannons and was launched in June 1813.Terror was a specialized warship and a newly developed bomb vessel constructed for the Royal Navy in 1813. She participated in several battles of the War of 1812, including the Battle of Baltimore with the bomba
  19. Hello, this is my first wooden ship build (and build log too). I came to this hobby with some paper modeling experience (mostly architecture) I hope Kit from OcCre: HMS Terror be a good start. Finished deck planking. I'm not complete sure about color of bulwark. Please do leave suggestions and tips, I’m new to this.
  20. 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
  21. This will be my 1st time building a OcCer kit. I am well pleased with the kit and the detail as provided by OcCer. As with any build one is striving to learn knew skills and methods of construction. It has been quite awhile since I built a POF kit. But I have retired and have plenty of time on my hands to build. I have several large kits stored away but, I did not want to jump back in with a build taking years to complete. I also am a sucker for anything with History. I had already watched the AMC mini-series and this past Spring stumbled across Mattew Betts Blog on the HMS Terror. Th
  22. On this day, two hundred years ago, HMS Terror was launched in Topsham, Devon. The Terror was originally built as a bomb vessel and saw noteworthy action during the War of 1812. However, her destiny lay in exploring the ice pack at both ends of the earth, and she was arguably the most successful polar vessel ever constructed by the Royal Navy. HMS Terror during her passage home, 1837 © National Maritime Museum Collections With their exceptionally strong frames, bluff bows, shallow draft, and spacious holds, bomb ships were ideal vessels for conversion to polar explorat
