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.

  1. very intricate!

  2. Don,
    Absolutely a masterpiece of a build you did. It is truly a something to look at.
    I would like to ask a few questions if I could because I will be building this kit at some point in the future. I would really like your insights overall.
    Am I understanding correctly that this build here is the Heller 1/100 HMS Victory Plastic sailing ship?
    If it is would you email me an overview of how you build this kit and what kind changes you made with kit and so forth? I would like to really get the details of how you built this kit. Your photos have really inspired me to want to try to accomplish what you put forth on my own build of the Heller HMS Victory.

    Please contact at my provided email address.

    I hope to hear from you in the near future.

    Thanks so much for sharing

  4. Love the ship. Very unique, colors are the best.

  5. congratulations on your incredible work: it’s a great success. I do not know this Chinese brand Lee and the engravings of the orange plating seem to me very different from those of the Heller kit : how did you do to modify it? What are the references of this Lee kit? Thank you.
