HMS Victory cross section by Kostas - Corel

Recommended Posts

I have always wanted  to build a cross section, and since my next build will be HMS victory, so I have chosen corel's Victory and corel's victory cross section in 1:98 scale.

I 've been told, that corel's kit is quite old and in some parts outdated.

some pictures from cargohold, I have added pump house, shot holder621866010_cargohold01.thumb.jpg.3920aa0b1d2696fee6fe3c34b5e7c046.jpg1150554619_cargohold02.thumb.jpg.c256e11ef16c655ae0b42b5a75c0debc.jpg927089019_cargohold03.thumb.jpg.905f78b02e1a0dd2736e166c395d4728.jpg and hull ribs

after finishing hull rib, and install pump house etc, I made a mistake and I had to remove it

I had to rebuild it again, but it was very hard to put it again where it was, so I cut it in two parts and tried to install it

as it shown in picture there are gaps. Those gaps will be not shown when is finished because of the rocks I will place in cargohold1465555660_missedhullribs.thumb.jpg.b5a78954fed713d1177c3af089404b90.jpg

Orlop deck


I have decided not to use treenails for the orlop deck, but I will the 'rule of 4" for the deck planking (as I used this rule for the hull planking)

Preparing stones to add ballast in cargohold. I cleaned them first and oiled them later to get more vivid color


I will prefer the grey or black stones, but I will use multiple colors. I will place larger stones on bottom, and smaller on top. I am gluing them one by one.

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.
