Gunboat H.M.S. Terror

 Damnation, Caruthers!”  Commander Portly-Smyth waived the telegram in the air.  “The bloody Indigenous Peoples* are revolting again.   They have surrounded Gambezyport.  The Sultan has taken refuge in the British Ambassador’s residence, and is hiding under the bed.   So far, the Royal Marines have been able to keep the greasy beggars out of the residency, but they are running out of ammunition for the Gatling Gun.  What will we do?   We’ll have to tell the Admiral. That’s what we’ll have to do.”   

 Lieutenant Caruthers looked up from his dog eared copy of “Punch”.  “If we disturb Admiral Ballsy’s weekly Whist game, there’s no telling where it will end.   Don’t bother telling him – just send a gunboat.  The Terror is in port.  She can be there in a day and a half.  By the time Old Ballsy finds out about it, the Terror will have settled their hash.”

The Gunboat Terror is perfect for Colonial Gaming in Africa, Asia or wherever there is trouble brewing.  Send a Gunboat!

Reviresco’s downloadable Gunboat Terror kit measures 16 inches long by 4 inches wide x 10 inches high and is just the ticket to deal with revolting natives,  pirates, gunrunners, or slavers.  The kit includes US, British, German and French flags and is armed with 4 12lb and 2 3lb quick fire guns.

There appears to have been a re-numbering of the sheets. Sheets 7 and 7A in the instructions are presumably 5 and 5A. Are there any other changes, especially any that might not be apparent straight away?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
