HMS Victory (The inside story)
« on: November 15, 2016, 12:04:39 PM »

A few views of a static version I made of the old lady some time ago. To give you some idea of scale the upper gun deck has a meal laid out for the crew, the pint of ale being around 1cm tall. For those planning anything similar, the x-sectional view is obviously to a smaller scale and the 'ballast' is made from crushed gravel mixed with cat litter and held together with wallpaper paste.

Brilliant detail on the gun deck, however I didn't realise the quality of the food & ale :o for common sailors......was of such fair....

Although was see a Marine in the earlier view........Derek

I think the marine is there to control the table manners of the crew?  %%
