I didn't like the hooks supplied with the Jotika kit so decided to make my own.

 

For my first and second attempts at making hooks I adapted fishing hooks. They were not very successful.

 

These pics show my third attempt at making my own hooks............

Hello Robert, sadly I haven't completed Victory yet. It was always going to be a long term project as I have other hobbies and pastimes. 

However, I have come quite a long way since my last pictures posted. I will take a few more photos and post later today.

A week later............ where does the time disappear to when you're retired?!!

I took these pics earlier today - please excuse the model makers nightmare, DUST. During the course of construction I did keep the model covered as much as possible but, I forgot to cover it over completely when the heating engineer installed new heating pipes. It wasn't noticeable at the time but a layer of dust was everywhere!!

Derek, this is beautiful work. I am not sure what deliberate mistake you are referring to. I am not at this stage yet but it appears to me that your upper counter is less prominent than it might otherwise be - you know the place where the "Victory" is written? Or is it just the camera angle?

No it's not the wiring OC. 

Seventynet - It is the camera angle - I hope !

 

Check out the scrolls adjacent to the top rear windows on the stern. Check them against HMS Victory at Portsmouth.

Looking great!

 

What treatments has your top deck had? Quite like the look of it. Or is it natural wood?

Thank you 🙂

The decks were stain varnished then rubbed down then clear varnish.

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.
