    Its Finished.

    It's taken a long time to finish, but I'm really pleased with how the Victory has come out, I've made a lot of mistakes with this model, but i think as a whole most of them are hard to see and i had a lot of fun making it. I can see why most people don't war-game in this scale, it would take far too long to ever build a fleet, not to mention how much room it would take up for a battle.

    Here are some pictures of the finished HMS Victory in 1:300 scale. Made from Rod Langton's fantastically detailed kit. (apologies for the people in the background, its a very busy office at the moment)

    Alsom thanks to Whitejamest (http://www.sailsofglory.org/member.php?179-Whitejamest), who's blog i found long time ago, and who's amazing 1:300 model of the USS wasp, convinced me to start on 1:300 scale in the first place. After making the Wasp, Juno and now the Victory, James you have cost me a lot of money.

    Now I'm ready for my sails of glory ship to arrive so i can work on those.

    Of course he would.

    And don't call him Surely. :)

    Rumack: What was it we had for dinner tonight?
    Elaine Dickinson: Well, we had a choice of steak or fish.
    Rumack: Yes, yes, I remember, I had lasagna.

    Actually, this may not be a Joke -- if one has dietary restrictions, one can often arrange an alternate. In this case, Rumack could have ordered a vegetarian plate (which leads me to wonder if he suspected something was wrong with food-service at LAX, and was on that flight to head off catastrophe... >;) ).

    Chris, this is really beautiful work and a joy to behold. I'm really flattered that you found some inspiration on my blog. I make no apologies for the money you've spent, as the rest of us have benefited from your outlays! (But I sympathize, it's brutal on the wallet, I know!)
    Now I need to actively fight against the urge to acquire a Victory model. That may be your revenge.....

    - James
