HMS Terror Video

Recommended Posts

Very interesting.

I just finished Palin's book on the Erebus and can't but wonder why there is a model of the Terror but not of the flagship of the expedition. 

Anyone has an idea why? The book is brilliant btw.

 

Cheers

Because " Terror " sounds way cooler than " Erebus " .. ?

imagine the wealth of information that could give us if it was raised like the wasa or mary rose, stunning

 

She's so well preserved that there is talk of trying to recover documents from the captain's cabin. Imagine if some of Crozier's logs could be recovered?

I wonder if they can raise her like the Wasa.  That would be incredible.  Excavate and extract as much stuff as possible probably over a decade and then bring her back up and put her in a museum.

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 “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
