  1. I had the great pleasure to visit the Victory in full restoration during September 2015 in its dry dock, the ship was in great need of it, the percentage of authentic pieces decreases from decade to decade as the work necessary to maintain it in its state. I recommend this visit if you are passionate about this kind of ship. Luckily the weather was nice, which allowed me to take pictures inside without flash. I think that these pictures will be useful for some people. Let's take some pictures:
  2. Finally completed a little ship i've been chipping away at between other projects. This is the Airfix Victory Starter Set purchased for about a fiver from Aldi or Lidl along with a few other small kits. Mostly military aircraft but I also picked up the Cutty Sark and Mary Rose. They are both at various stages of completion but will, I hope, become part of a little trio of roughly 1/600 ships. This is an ancient kit dating back to the 50's I believe. The fit is ok when you consider the age but the sails took a long time to clean up. Other than that it didn't present too many issues other than being very fiddly due to it's tiny size. I've not gone for accuracy with this kit. Instead I wanted this to be a fun little build that looks like the Victory to the casual observer. I also wanted to experiment a little with creating water effects but went with a hybrid look of still having it on it's stand with the water lapping around it. I have a little Revell Ferry that I will turn into a Diorama in the next few weeks. All OOB except the addition of some simplified rigging just to give an extra bit of detail to the model. Thanks for looking!
  3. Hi Everyone This is the Revell 1/225 HMS Victory that I made quite a while ago which was all hand painted as I hadn't discovered airbrushes at the time. Oh how I missed out! One of the few builds that I did not add lights to. Hope you like it and thanks for viewing.
  4. In case anyone has been wondering where I was, I have been trying to fill my workshop to the ceiling with wood shavings, none of yer plastic nonsense. I have also come over a bit nautical after my Arizona exploits. Anyhoo, here's what I've been doing:- Must be going mad.Manual says 3000 hours to build. Reckon I'm half done. Thanks for looking. Nick
