HMS Victorious
« on: September 07, 2017, 04:41:34 PM »


Been asked to build the above at 1`/72 (yes all 10foot+ of her)  does anyone know of any plans knocking about?  saw a model on you tube of her at Llandudno, but no details on owner.


Any suggestions (polite) accepted.

You could start at the NMM at Greenwich for the basic hull lines at least, whether the drawings for her post re-fit are anybody's guess.

Fleetscale make a semi-kit at 1/128 scale. They have a set of plans at that scale in their store:

As above Rob, the Anatomy book is a must, everything in there that you would need.

Cor!  You must have some books if you forgot you've got the Anatomy.  Sure you haven't forgotten that first edition Shakespeare or the Gutenberg Bible? {-) {-) {-) {-)
