Occre Beagle (and Terror) Shipment Update

[Update: 5/2/19 The Kits are HERE!]

While I’m sorry to say that the new HMS Beagle kits have not yet arrived, they are definitely coming soon. We just found out there was some kind of overload on FedEx’s end with a shortage of warehousing space, which delayed transit. But, they should be back on route to us shortly.

On the positive side, if you haven’t had a chance to pre-order your OcCre HMS Beagle kit with the pre-order discount yet, there is still time. You can get your kit for only $188.10. This kit looks very good and we expect it to be very popular. But, don’t worry, we ordered plenty, so we don’t expect to run out any time soon.

And, if you’re interested in the very popular HMS Terror kit, sadly, we just sold the last of our stock today. Fear not, there are more coming in the OcCre shipment along with the new HMS Beagle kits.

We’ll post an announcement as soon as the shipment is in. So, stay tuned…

HMS Beagle became famous for her survey voyages when a passenger on her second expedition, a young naturalist named Charles Darwin, wrote his famous work On the Origin of Species.

The ship was built as one of the Cherokee-class of 10-gun brig sloops, and was launched in the Thames River on May 11, 1820, at the Wollwich shipyards. In July of that same year, as part of the celebrations for the coronation of King George IV, it was the first man-of-war to sail under the new London Bridge.

In 1825, her armament was reduced and a mizzen mast was added, changing her to a barque rig, at which time she was fitted out for service as a survey ship.

OcCre’s is a 1/60-scale kit is based on the ship’s 1825 specifications, and features laser-cut parts for the framework, and double plank-on-bulkhead hull construction for ease of build.

High quality wood strips are provided for hull and deck planking, wooden dowels for masts and yards, and a full set of fittings in wood, brass, and cast metal, as well as a sheet of photo-etched brass detail parts. The kit also includes colorful flags, rigging cord, display cradle, and a full set of pre-sewn sails. A pictoral instruction book and plans sheets make for an easy to understand build.

What’s more, if you want a little extra guidance on building this kit, OcCre has prepared a series of 30 short Youtube videos, each between 30 seconds to 2-1/2 minutes long, illustrating the steps of the build.
