| Description

Launched on 7th May 1765, HMS Victory gained its fame by becoming Admiral Nelson's flagship during the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The victory at this battle ended Napoleon's bid for mastery of the sea, but cost Admiral Nelson his life.

She had previously taken part in many major actions against Spanish and French fleets, and is now the oldest serving Royal Naval ship still in service, being the flagship of Portsmouth Command.

After being restored to the same condition and appearence as she was at Trafalgar, she can now be seen in all her glory at her home in Portsmouth by visitors from all over the world.

Still just as difficult

To misquote the Hovis ad: 'Still as difficult to do now, as it has always been', ie 45 years ago when I first bought the model as a 10 year old. Fun to do though; as some others on other sites have commented, the quality leaves something to be desired re the components fitting together properly and so on - having access to a range of modellers tools, putty, etc is a must. Trying to get those darned lines reasonably straight on the ship's hull, is no easier half a century on ...
