Ordered 5 days ago from UK, got it today. I am really chopping at the bits to build the vessel called Terror. Let alone the history of this ship from, our Star Spangled Banner to lost in the Polar Ice Cap. Over all is not bad at all. The material looks on pare with todays mfg's. No plains but a well done photo/instruction guide. Google HMS TERROR and you will find over 1 hundred You Tube Videos from Occre for the assembly of the kit. All wood frame parts are laser cut w/little chair on face of parts. Fittings very complete and the deck furniture is well and crisply cast metal. The wood strip is 1st quality with no issues. Overall I am very happy with except for 2 issues I found. The FK and main deck was warped! d a e-mail off and asked for these to be replaced. Yes I know how to flatten again, but it will only be temporarily fixed until the offending side draws the part again. I have found that if you find this in a kit, get the mfg to replace and or recut. Other than that, the kit is very nice and for now is stashed away until said parts arrive. Occre acknowledged they had received my request. I have not included any photos, Google HMS Terror and you will find all you need to see.
