Hvacgoon, I assume you are talking about the very first panel of the directions, "1 PREPERATION OF THE SEMI HULLS"? If this is the case, you will see there is a note "B" in a box, and the text directs you to "8A", which is their way of saying Look at Note A on instruction panel 8, which is on the next page. Panel 8 shows the two hull halves and the two large interior deck parts. Note that on the right hand hull half, the loops you are talking about are all drawn in place. There are notations for each bunch giving the sizes and those sizes range from 3mm to 13mm.

I wish someone had told me to IGNORE these loops when I was making my Heller 1/100 HMS Victory. They are supposed to represent the Chains on the ship. ( Chains are part of the standing rigging and are made of iron on the actual ship). If you google the term "chain plate" or "HMS Victory Chanels" you will find photos of the real thing.

You will be able to make up chains on the hull much later in the building process.

If you can, look up user "Dafi" using the search window and have a look at what he is doing with HIS Heller Victory.

I found the chainplates pre fabbed and I ordered them. I still would like to get my hands on some instructions that are readable mine are so blurry I can bairly make out the words in areas let alone the numbers.

 Hello to all builders Heller's 1/100 model of The HMS Victory.

  After reading others who have posted on this forum about the advantages and disadvantages

of the Heller 1/00 scale model of the HMS Victory. I have just bought one and while it will be

some time before I start building it ( I have started my first plank on bulkhead wood kit:

The Brig Niagara by Model Expo.) I have noticed the comments about the French to

English translation problem and I was pleasantly surprised to find that my copy was all in

English although the model is indeed the Heller version both on the box and

the instructions themselves. 

  My scanner is too small to scan it all but maybe I can scan it a half of a page at a time.

Many of the pages are split frame in layout but others are full page and would be split.

  I am open to suggestions that would benefit members of this forum who have an interest

in this subject

I have recently purchased the Heller 1/100 scale HMS Victory and the instructions are in French (except for one page, go figure).  I am looking for a complete set of instructions in English, can anyone point me in the right direction?  I have contacted Heller twice, no response...   Thanks
