I started this conversion some time ago, but I finally finished it and while it may not be totally accurate, (I tried my best) I think it's a pretty good rendition of HMS Victory of 1765.

From the same trip with Martin... Nelson...

His face was reconstructed from a mask he had made shortly before he was killed. Originally it was thought to be a death mask, but it was confirmed later that it was a 'living' wax mask and he actually sat for it... it appears he was quite a vain man, despite being universally loved. They also used some information from a profile sketch that was done for another 'suitor', which he claimed was the closest likeness he had seen (many of his portraits were 'enhanced' to convey whatever image of him the artist wanted to convey). This means that this waxwork is probably the most accurate picture of Nelson we will ever get.

That 'suitor' wasn't Lady Hamilton by the way... it seems our Nelson was a bit of a 'ladies man'... He was surprisingly small, but apparently well loved by his men (as well as a myriad of ladies, by the sound of it!), and far from being a 'cabin' Admiral, he fought alongside them on his deck and was noted as being brave, daring and yet considerate to his crews and captains.
