HMS VICTORY and Lord Nelson

 
In 1765 the VICTORY was launched in the navy yard of Chatham. From the beginning the ship of the line was equipped with 100 cannons, but found her first war employment only in 1778 in the battle near Ouessant against the French. In later years there were several sea-engagements in shorter sequence, 1781 again Ouessant, followed by 1782 at Gibraltar, 1793 at Toulon, 1794 at Corsica and 1797 at Cape Sao Vicente.

On 18 May 1803 she became the flagship of admiral Nelson, who achieved two years later, on 21 October 1805, in the battle of Trafalgar the probably most important victory in the naval history of Britain.

In 1922 the VICTORY was put into a dry dock at Portsmouth and has been open for visitors since.

 

The VICTORY ship model, photos, description and dimensions

 
This excellent model of the VICTORY is a very fine piece of work. The lines of the hull and the extensive rigging are exquisitely shown in the model.

The ship model is not fixed to the stand. Alternatively, it could be set directly on a flat surface as in the photo above, stabilized by a tiny wedge, similar to this model of the Royal Louis.

The model is 1 : 78 scale. Length is 127 cm, width 48 cm, height 99 cm.

Have a look at the set of photos. There are several views of the entire model and closer views of hull, deck and rigging. Click images to enlarge!

  

This model has already been sold. The pictures and the data are shown in the gallery of the ship models sold only to let enthusiasts and model makers enjoy the photos and maybe get ideas or some guidance, if someone builds such a model by himself.
