EREBUS AND TERROR TOGETHER AGAIN

In my last post, I revealed that my Terror model would be displayed in the “Death in the Ice”
exhibition, now showing at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. On July 13th, I was fortunate to see the exhibition at a private event for experts, dignitaries, and those who had contributed knowledge or items to the exhibition. I was very impressed by the show, which provides a detailed review of the history of the expedition and tracks the fascinating trail of clues recovered by myriad Franklin searchers, culminating in the identification of HMS Erebus and Terror by Parks Canada. 

Accompanying the exhibition is a beautiful display of 129 flags, one for each crew member of the Franklin Expedition.
The flags for Franklin and Crozier can be seen in the front row.


My model is placed relatively early in the show, in a section detailing the construction and outfitting of the expedition’s ships. Remarkably, it is surrounded by some of the greatest art and technical plans associated with Erebus and Terror.  

The case containing my model. On the left is the original 1839 Admiralty builder's
model of HMS Erebus; my Terror is on the right.  A large scale reproduction of the
1839 cross section plan for Terror and Erebus is placed at the back of the case. 

In my previous post, I outlined that my model is not yet complete because I intentionally paused construction for the show. Currently, my Terror is a slightly more detailed version of a “builder’s model,” and is missing many fittings. The reason for this can now be revealed; my Terror is displayed in the same case as the original 1839 Admiralty builder’s model of Erebus. The exhibition team wished to show the differences in size between the two ships and, in particular, the new fittings installed for the 1845 polar expedition when compared to the 1839 configuration. For this reason, they requested that Terror approach the same level of detail as the 1839 builder’s model.

A view from their bows . 

I admit a degree of anxiety came with this great opportunity. My version of Terror is modeled at the standard 1:48 Admiralty scale, the same as the builder’s model of Erebus. However, my plans are custom hybrids created by concatenating details from multiple plans spanning a 33-year period, with additional alterations based on contemporary historical sources. I had measured, scaled, remeasured, and measured again to ensure the scale and dimensions were correct, but I still worried that something was amiss.  I had nightmares that museum staff would open the packing crate only to find that my Terror was larger than Erebus, or had the wrong bow shape, or some other fatal flaw.

I’m happy to say that my Terror appears to have just the right proportions, with all the necessary similarities and differences to Erebus. It is slightly smaller than Erebus in length, height, and breadth, but with nearly identical curves and lines, and with the characteristic difference in bow shape. In short, all appears as it should be.

A view from the stern. 

It is sincerely humbling to have my Terror displayed next to the 178-year-old model of Erebus. The list of famous Royal Navy explorers and shipwrights who studied and touched this object is astonishing; a very truncated list includes Sir James Clark Ross, Francis Crozier, Sir John Franklin, Sir John Ross, Sir Edward Belcher, Sir William Parry, Oliver Lang, John Rice, and Sir John Barrow. Sir Ernest Shackleton and Robert Falcon Scott are also thought to have consulted the plans and models of Erebus and Terror before outfitting their ships for the Antarctic. I’m frankly overwhelmed that my model is now breathing the same air as this incredible object of history.

    I was searching for loan to sort out my bills & debts, then i saw comments about Blank ATM Credit Card that can be hacked to withdraw money from any ATM machines around you . I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting: atmdatabasehackers@gmail.com they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with $100,000.00 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 24 hours later, i was shock to see the UPS agent in my resident with a parcel{card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work after the agent left. This is no doubt because I have the card & have made use of the card. These hackers are USA based hackers set out to help people with financial freedom!!

  12. WHERE YOU SCAMMED OF YOUR COINS? CONTACT MORRIS GRAY FOR HELP!!!

    I invested a total of$95,000.00USD worth of Bitcoin with an online company who does trading and was guaranteed a payout of 25% a week. They ended up shutting down their company website but their website was still running. So I could still see my dashboard at that time and instead of paying weekly they ended up compounding my money. It ended up compounding to$179, 000USD so I requested for a withdrawal which was declined before they shutdown their website, I complained to my colleague at work who directed me about this recovery expert, Mr. Morris Gray, that helped him, I contacted him immediately, what surprised me most, was that I recovered my money that same week. You can contact him on his email at { MorrisGray830 at Gmail Dot com } and he will assist you on the steps to recover your invested funds.
    Just trying to help those who where scammed just the way I was too.

  15. I am Phillip Vincent, from New York, United States of America. I want to share my testimony about a great hacker. Being a victim of a scam can be devastating and horrible, you were given empty promises before investing and once you invested they usually stop replying to their emails, calls, and text. That shows they’ve achieved their aim to scam and hurt you. I have been there too as I was too ambitious and wanted financial security which made me invest $70,000 of my life’s savings. I never thought I would be getting back on my feet by getting back my stolen funds as I already lost hope until I found a recovery team and contacted them which was a leap of faith as I wasn’t going to go down without a fight for my money, (wizardwebrecovery@programmer.net) is the fund recovery expert that helped me retrieve a significant sum of my investment back. Have you been scammed before and you want the money back? Wizard Web Recovery is the best solution, they are fast and reliable with anything connected to hacking.

  18. Have you heard about Cryptocurrency, bitcoin, Ethereum or Dogecoin? It's the trending form of investment that can change your financial status for the better. This was how I got to meet with the wrong platform for crypto investment and was duped over $100,000 USDT. This was supposed to be an investment plan that will change my life and sustain me for years ahead. I was ripped off and didn't know where or how to go about it. While surfing through the internet, I came across a pop up talking about Spyware Cyber and how they help victims recover stolen funds. This was quite scary to me but I chose to see how it would turn out. After few days of investigation , I got back my lost funds in full. I am so happy as I have decided to let the world also know about their effective service. Their contact information is as follows: spyware(@)cybergal(.)com
