Following the discovery of HMS Terror in 2016, a new book will be published this month.

The author Mr Betts built an accurately researched model of HMS Terror, so this book should be a most interesting read for anyone wishing to build a model or just interested in the ship itself.

These are good news and I guess I will order this book - very good information.
BTW:
Here is the link to the kit review - the book will be a good help to understand this model and bash it

HMS Terror: The Design Fitting and Voyages of a Polar Discovery Ship – Aug. 15 2021
by Matthew Betts (Author)


SYNOPSIS:

This book documents the history, design, modification, and fitting of HMS Terror, one of the world's most successful polar exploration vessels. Part historical narrative and part technical design manual, this book provides, for the first time, a complete account of

Terror's unique career, as well as an assessment of her sailing abilities in polar conditions, a record of her design specifications, and a full set of accurate plans of her final 1845 configuration. It is an ideal reference for those interested in the Franklin Mystery, in polar exploration, the Royal Navy, and in ship design and modelling.
