HMS Victory Construction

Nelsons Navy

Page 16 of 20

HMS Victory:


Model designed entirely in-house by Rich, Dave and John.

It is our intention to produce the most historically accurate model of H.M.S. Victory, as she was at Trafalgar. As you may be aware H.M.S. Victory is in the process of being restored to her original Trafalgar configuration in time for the bicentenary celebrations on October 21st 2005. We are working closely with the curator for H.M.S. Victory to ensure that all planned amendments to H.M.S. Victory will also be incorporated into our finished kits.

The first model under construction is at a scale of 1:72. We are aiming for a release date of late April. As soon as we have a price we will publish it here.

The all new forecastle! Note the solid bulwarks with three gunports, this corresponds with the most up to date research on Victory's true condition in 1805! The forward most gunport and the fiferail are used by the 68 pounder carronade and the two aft gunports are used by the 12 pounder medium guns.
Note also that everything will be included in the kit to allow the modeller to build Victory to her current Portsmouth condition, ie. capping rails, timberheads and hammock cranes for the forecastle.

Victory's poop deck! Note the hammock cranes are boarded up, again this corresponds to the most up to date research on Victory's condition in 1805! As well as being boarded up, there should be three gunports in the boarding (full details will be included in the kit). These gunports were used by 6 x 18 pounder carronades up until the re-fit in 1803. Although the carronades were removed during the re-fit, the gunports remained.
