Product Description

Commissioned in 1778, H.M.S. Victory had almost 30 years hard service under her keel at the time of Trafalgar. Yet she remained a fearsome fighting machine. She commanded the power of 102 cannon lining three decks. In a single devastating broadside, she could fire half a ton of iron shot more than a mile to smash through two feet of solid oak. She was a veteran of many hard fought naval battles.

She displaced over 3500 tons and measure 226 feet in length and 51 feet abeam. It took 2500 prime oak trees to plank her sides and deck. Her hull was sheathed in copper to guard against barnacles. In a stiff breeze, carrying 36 sails totaling four acres of canvass, she could plough the waves at 10 knots. Fair weather or foul, the Victory was a fortress city, stocked with 35 tons of powder and 120 tons of shot. She possessed the endurance to remain at sea for up to six months at a time.

Honored and preserved over the years, she rests now at Portsmouth, England, a never-to-be-forgotten symbol of loyalty, courage, and devotion to duty.

Please note: The manufacturer of this wood kit is based in Spain. Although complete plans and instructions are included, the limited English instructions provided require critical thinking and some modification as needed. This is not a build by numbers kit, and is not for everyone. Additional technique books, and or access to the advice of an experienced wood modeler or wood model club is recommended.
