HMS Terror by Seems ok to me - OcCre - Scale 1:75

Recommended Posts

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 between that list and the directions constantly. 
 

I also seem to have a brown E8 for whatever reason. Thanks I guess?

Hi,

 

The party just started so no you are not! :)

Really nice progress. I like your deck planking.

 

Some questions about your build:

1) What glue you used for deck planking?

2) Did you draw the lines for deck after glueing or did the sides before installing the planks?

3) Will you paint the model?

I used good ol’ Tightbond 1.  It gives you a little time to move things around but grabs nicely. Easy water clean up unlike CA.  I penciled a few planks before laying them down but it just didn’t seem to show up enough to be worth the effort. Maybe next time I’ll use a graphite stick instead of a pencil. Painting - depends on how much I muck up the planking. I’d really like to keep it natural but we shall see.

Still trying to see the AMC show I heard so much about, not available over here unfortunately. Saw some trailers on YT though, seemed intense 🙂

Hi,

 

Really nice for the first time.

I would suggest to sand it more so that 2nd planking would be smoother.

Also what I didnt do is checked how keels fit to hull. I suggest to do that and do some corrections with sanding if needed.

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.
