Does anyone have any links to pictures of one of these kits built up and finished?

Hi Tom,

If you go to the plastic model sailing ships website, there is an entire section devoted to Heller's 1/100 scale Victory. You will need to register in order to participate but the process is quite simple.

Regards

Frank R.

Those models do look nice... but for a wooden ship I think wooden kits do have a better feel to them.

I am currently chipping away at a 1/78th Panart HMS Victory - it's pretty plush with turned brass guns and exotic timbers. Can't wait till I've at least got the hull complete.

Any links to the Panart Victory model?

I'm afraid I don't know any offhand Tom. Perhaps somebody here will.

You are welcome to see mine in ten years when I finish it.

Cheers,

Joseph

Actually, I'm almost finished the first layer of limewood planking on the hull if anybody would like to see that. Midships and gun decks are also planked now.

It's not much to see yet though - I could photograph the photo on the box for you if you wanted Tom. It's a beauty alright. And, full hull - for those of us with taste :)

Alright, when I get the chance I'll do a mini in-box review, or sorts.... The limewood planking layer is just the structural one - so it looks ugly, and is supposed to be covered in wallnut and copper plate... but between the hull, and the box contents and photos on the box - you should get some idea. Plus I'll throw a 1/700 HMS Tiger into the composition to give a sense of scale.

Sometime this weekend I'll get round to it.

Cheers,

Joseph

PS: 10 years was really a little sarcastic... if I wasn't a full time student, and simultaneously trying to work on so many projects... I could probably do this in a year.

Some great sites for modelmakers of HMS Victory

http://www.hmsvictoryscalemodels.be/MODELS_EN.htm

http://www.hms-victory.com/

To get your color (colour) scheme and rigging right for 1805:

Feel free to post information here about other ships related to Nelson or Trafalgar.

I currently have the Panart 1/78th kit in a state of partial... erm.... well I shall not venture to say completion... but partially started... yes that's it!

Am also privileged to have seen the actual ship twice (sometimes referred to as "that pirate ship in Portsmouth"). No mean feat when one lives on the opposite side of the world from it...

I quite like Geoff Hunt's work on HMS Victory. Very illuminating. However to gain any sort of understanding as to what made Sir Thomas Slade's masterpiece so special, one should probably have a look at Brian Lavery's numerous works, in particular his two-volume series entitled "The Ship of the Line, The Development of the Battlefleet... etc etc".

It is my opinion (and just my opinion) that for first-rates, the HMS Victory (albeit being a small first-rate) had far more admirable lines, than the likes of the many larger 120s and 130s, serving in the Allied navies of the period. But that's just my opinion afterall :wave_1:

By far the most attractive big ships of the line were the 74s though. My predisposition is towards those of the Arrogant draught, i.e. Samuel Hood's HMS Zealous. A nice and very balanced appearance. Or perhaps Goodwin Keats' HMS Superb... a different draught again, but still a 74.

Huge agreement from me! The AotS "Bellona" is my second-favorite in that series. :eyebrows:

Totally concur. I think the 74s were possibly the finest looking of the period. Bellona, Mars and Thunderer all come to mind as good examples of a great design and aesthetically pleasing ship.

Glad to hear I'm not the only one gents; our tastes couldn't be more closely aligned could they :)

I also love the Bellona, also famous for being in Jack Aubrey's navy!

I'm still trying to gather enough information to backdate the Heller 1/100 model to when she had the much more attractive open stern galleries and blue paint. There are two models of her in that configuration in the UK but I couldn't make it over during my last trip across the Atlantic. Someday I'll get some good pictures, though.
