Please feel free to use these photos for reference purposes.


I took them (280 odd) on a solo 'modelmakers tour' of the old girl just as I was embarking on the Caldercraft 1/72 build.....my new log is on the relevant forum.


I will still retain all rights to the photos, so let me know if you want to use them for any other purpose.


Good luck all.

I have seen other online collections of photos of Victory but none so extensive or with such quality photographs,thank you for making them available! When I visited in the 90's I was not permitted to take ANY photos aboard,and you can imagine my frustration. This collection of photos is even better than if I HAD been allowed to take my own photos.

Well done!   So many photos, so many questions. 

What are the boxes at the stern with the small openings?  One of the photos shows one to the left of the lady who's hair looks like she stuck a finger in an electrical socket :D

Flag lockers, Allan. However, I can't explain the Van de Graaf lady!
