Built initially from the Billings Boats model which I used as the basis for my model. I say as the basis for it, as the more I started building Victory the more I wanted to add detail, such as the gun crews, which I know had many more sailors working the real gun decks, but I've kept things a little bit more minimalistic, I've also made internal cabins etc., and added lights throughout which unfortunately you can't see in these photographs. The whole build took me four years, which is something I've never focused on for that long before.


Great build, but gunports at the stern don't compare with the actual Victory, compartments at rear should be convex slightly. Billings at fault here.In fact 80% of the aft doesn't match up.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
