HMS Terror by Honza_H - OcCre - 1:65 - First wood model build

Recommended Posts

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.

Is that deck supplied like that? interesting...

 

With the bulwark color it is up to you. I tend to paint mine red ochre but if you like the color of the wood plain then that is fine as well.

According to documentation provided at this site, Terror's bulwarks were painted yellow. The exact shade is not described, but the Admiralty must have had some sort of standardized color scheme for vessels of that type and period.

Great start,   I would have thought  yellow  ocre  as it was quite a standardized  paint.

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.
