100th scale HMS Victory.

September 18, 2015 in Ships

After a long break of several years I have restarted my build of Heller’s monster!
I put about five years of work researching and scratch building parts including the ships boats. I’ve put some time in over the past week making scratch building forty oars! Seem to remember why I ran out of steam last time!

If anyone wants to see more pictures of the build there is a complete write up here

  1. An artist in wood….anybody that builds these type of ships has my admiration.

  2. Thanks Craig, but its all plastic and bits of metal. I’ll take the compliment though 😉

  3. Wow – plastic! Unbelievable results. You are a true master!

  4. Thanks Greg. Not sure I’m a master, more of a determined bodger.

  5. Very nice work, no matter the medium. Oddly enough I was just looking over my next wooden ship build, HM Bomb Vessel Granado 1756 (1/64), maybe to make a start in November.

  6. Way to go Robert!
    Keep it up!

  7. Thanks again for the comments everyone.

  8. Amazing project, Robert.

  9. I have modified the kit anchors using the Anatomy of the Ship book for reference. I made new stocks from acrylic sheet and corrected the shank and palms. The puddening was done with scale .25mm rope. I painted the stocks to represent bare wood rather than the more traditional (accurate!) black.
