HMS Terror and HMS Erebus Diorama by Joe100 - FINISHED - 1/950


Recommended Posts

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.

Hi Joe

 

How did I miss seeing your Build Log before? No matter, those are really nice models you’ve built.

 

I’d love to see some close-up photos of the details that added to your boats, if that’s possible.

 

All the best.

 

Cheers. 

 

Patrick
