  1. Here the progress I made last weekend.: And her the differences between the model and the original. When I place the part the way I did on the picture, no 1 is correct, but no. 2+3 are not. The model: The original: So next time I will remove these en replace them. Then I will allign no 2+3 and modify 1. No 1 will end to high in comparison to the deck, so I wil cut the part that is exceeding the length it has to be. To be continued
  2. Did some corrections to the striping. I wasn't satisfied with them. I also mad some progress with the build itself, but time was to short last night, to make pictures of it.
  3. After a long time of no progress, due to circumstances, I finaly made some progress again. I only forgot to make pictures of the progress. But the hull is glued together. Here pictures of how it is now: Hopefully soon more progress.
  4. A little bit more colour on the upper gundeck. Those beams with no: 103 don't belong on the Victory (anymore) Before mod including some nasty looking bulges for the lanterns. After mod: I also painted the upper gundeck cannons.
  5. After a modelling break of about six years, I recently picked up the hobby. I decided to build the Victory after reading the book: Batavia written by Peter Fitzsimons. So I started with collecting some reference pictures and discovered that after a scientific research the colours on the ship were incorrect. Sadly these colours aren't readily available, so I will have to try and mix them myself. The colours as they are familiar: The new colours as Lord Nelsom himself should recognize them: Then the model itself: LOADS OF FLASH. But hey, the molds are from 1959. So I will call it German nostalgia. After cleaning te parts sltill a lot of attention is required to make the parts fit in a nice way. Here my work thusfar: All sprues primered Hull, quarterdeck and uppper gundeck Hull inside: Cannon with drilled barrel: Dryfit: Soon more.....
  6. So here is my first update: Did some paintwork on her. More asap.
  7. Started during the Mosquito GB, but didn't finish it in the time. It's all about: A few pics of the build thusfar: Hopefully today or tomorrow my first update.
