  1. Hi Mike

    Its been a while since we messaged, hope all is well and you decided to continue with building ships, if I remember the Vic was to be your last. Talking of Victory, hows the library piece bearing up to the riggers of life on display. Hats off that you completed it so soon really, I have long breaks as time doing other life jobs gets in the way, not to mention interest wavers, starting back up after a break has it inherent problems to. I have spent a very long time learning to handle a sewing machine, making new sails As the kits provided were short of the amount she actually wore. Enough now, I hope all is well with you and your family, take care

    Is there a link to the build log of this, I want to pinch some sail build / fit details, love the furled sails as they would be with run out canons battle ready. Beautifully built model she is a credit tool you
  4. Help. I was lead to beleive that when the canons are run out for battle as the image shows the lower sails are furled to prevent canon balls shredding them. But the image contradicts this theory. Now was this an artist licence to paint the HMS Victory in this way, or are our beliefs questionable. I ask as I am creeping upto this stage. I considered leaving her bereft of sails but why would canons be run out when there are no sails on her. This image was from a documentary : Shipwrecks Britains Sunken past

    Beautiful, really beautiful, this is my planned next kit, she is different, is this the best kit to represent this model, I ask as I have not looked into which one to aim for yet.

    Beautiful build.... really love this ship and one day I too will have her sat in my dock I have to confess, I don't often wonder about the MSW site very often. This is not because I'm busy on my own site but purely because whenever I decide to wander about I realize that I am far in the wake of the models that this hobby's modelers produce.... but time to time I wander and I generally look at those who looked or poster a like on mine. This is a beautiful model and I know where to come when one day I build her.

    Beautifully built model, really she looks wooden and that takes some reproduction, that's before I get on to the diorama. love the dry dock platform and the scaffold for repairs. Please if it lives open to the elements, Please,please,please get her in a glass case. Stunning mate.
