Manufacturer of the kit: Lee (Heller)

Ship type: Military

Engine type: Sailing and rowing

Country of origin: United Kingdom

Model scale: 1:100

The ship model of HMS Victory in the scale of 1:100 from the kit of the company Lee (Heller) was assembled in 1997. Assembling took me 9 months. The task was to assemble a model for a show-case with minimal modifications. That’s why bad threads are present in the rigging, lack of attention to small, but “reviving” details. And of course the lack of experience (the second sailing ship model at that time).

However, I still tried to install the rigging of the model according to O. Courty’s book “Construction of ship models”.

A bit of ship model history

I was installing the shrouds directly on the model, then the brading. Since I didn’t know Chinese the painting not exactly corresponds to the original one. Also there was no Internet at that time, no place to gather colorful information on such a well-known ship. I confess.

In 2010 the model was restored after the collapse of the show-case. There were added details from noble woods, bow coat of arms was repainted, and some other small changes added.

Primer and painting – “Angel” nitro.

So, here is the model itself.
