HMS VICTORY - Lord Nelson's Flagship
 

HMS Victory - Before the Admiralty Board could authorize the construction of a new vessel, its members had to know what it would look like. It was common practice for ship builders of the time to submit models of a proposed ship for approval. The models built for this purpose had no masts or rigging, making the deck space, furnishings and armament layout easy to visualize.

Now, you can build Corel's H.M.S. Victory in two versions: as an admiralty model, or the fully rigged man-of-war defending England's honor during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The hull is double planked in limewood and walnut, with tanganyka strips for planking the deck. All wooden parts are pre-cut to facilitate assembly. Lanterns, railings and other fittings are brass, gilded cast metal and walnut. One hundred cast metal cannon and carronades are burnished for an authentic appearance. Brass gunport frames open and close with hinged lids. Display stand, five diameters or rigging, flags and hammock netting are provided. Fourteen sheets of plans plus an instruction book including directions for building the admiralty version guarantees a faithful replica.
 


The paint sets for these kits are historically accurate colors that have been specially formulated for model ships. They are high quality acrylic based paints that can be thinned with water, thinner or alcohol. They clean up easily with water, making them ideal for airbrush use. Brushed or sprayed, paints dry flat with good grain structure and a smooth finish. The colors contained in each paint set are based on the colors shown in the picture of the model. 1 oz. bottles
