plans for a 1/48th scale HMS Victory

Recommended Posts

There was a book called "HMS Victory, Restoration and Repair", I think, by a guy named Bugler or Buglar, that had a full set of twenty-six official 1/4" scale plans from the 1970s. That book is kinda rare though. They were the official plans of the ship as restored.

 

They are a two volume set. There are two on E-bay right now: $349 and $583, both Buy-It Now. Expensive, but the NMM will charge you nearly $90 for just one oversized sheet.

Yes the Bugler book and folio of plans is hard to find and usually will cost about $500. Be aware that the plans show Victory as restored, not as originally built, and now disputed as showing her as she was at Trafalgar.

the 1/48 victory is an after retirement project i still have to build several kits before that,  almost finished with a Spanish galleon for a family member

im just getting all the resources i can together. I will be visiting the Victory in October this year and lots of detail pics will be taken, at least where they will let me take them.     thanks again

The plans used in Longridges book are available again in the UK: Here  Mostly drawn to 1/96 scale but the frame drawings are full size for 1/48 scale.

(Worth a look at Sarik Hobbies - Who now carry all the plans from the now defunct Model and Allied Publications in the UK - they also have plans for several other scale sailing ships - usual disclaimer, I have nothing to do with them apart from being a satisfied customer.)
