Terror (1813); Erebus (1826)

Scale: 1:48. Plan showing the orlop deck and hold with details of stowage and magazine stowage for Terror (1813) and Erebus (1826), both Bomb Vessels converted for polar exploration. The plan relates to the two ships as converted for the Antarctic Expedition under Captain James Clark Ross in 1839.

The plan shows the Erebus, as Terror had some diferences in the position of the bowsprit and hatches.
