I am building a ship similar to Victory and am interested in buying the kit for using the hull to modify it to look like HMS St. Lawerence.I would also consider trading most of the Confederacy kit fittings and photoetch but not the wood. Cheers! John.
Bought my Victory just before Christmas from the proceeds of a house sale. Did a lot of work a few photos but lost them when Hard Drive went down (I was a computer progammer before retiring always took backups just didnt do i often enough) So unless i can recover then will start from where I am now Have finished first planking and the lowerpart of the second planking. On the two models I have previously completed I planked the hull with scale 5" Planks and on both used tree nails No decent pictures of my Panart Victory from 35 years ago (Valued at £5000 by National Maritime Museum).
From the album: HMS Bellerophon 1/150HMS Bellerophon. I built her following the blueprints of a traditional English frigate of the XVIII century. This model is a generic frigate, and has no relation with the real, second rater ship of the line HMS Bellerophon, which carried Napoleon to Saint Helena island. Hull is made of styrene, built with a plank on bulkhead technique. Cannons are brass and masts are balsa wood. The figures are taken from a train maquette kit and painted to fit the uniforms of the time. Sadly, no building log for this one.
