The Artesania Latina HMS Victory wooden ship model kit is highly realistic with many fine details. HMS Victory was launched on the 7th of May 1765. It was active in the British Navy from 1778 to 1812, gaining experience in important battles throughout the world such as the battle of Ushant (1781) and San Vicente (1797).
Ultimately however, it was on the 21st of October 1805 at the Battle of Trafalgar, where, under the command of Admiral Nelson, it spearheaded the victory of the British fleet against the French fleet. On the 21st October 2005, the Royal Navy celebrated the victory at Trafalgar, and HMS Victory once again shot to the limelight. Since 1922 the Victory has been restored and is now a museum, permanently moored in port at Portsmouth. Interestingly it has never been de-commissioned from the Navy and is still regarded as a ship of the fleet.
The Artesania Latina H.M.S. Victory is a fantastic kit, ideal for the advanced modeller. The kit includes laser cut frames, keel and bulkheads, and exotic wood strip for hull planking. Also included is the wooden deck planking, masts and spars, metal and wooden fittings, and cloth for the sails. The instruction booklet is very detailed, taking you through every step of construction.
When complete, this model weighs over 12kg and measures 1250mm (4' 1 1/4") in length, 850mm (2' 9 1/2") in height and 450mm (1' 5 3/4") in width. It will make an awesome addition to any collection!

Artesania HMS Victory
This kit is well presented and and packed.As with most kits there are errors in the instructions,very dissapointed that after trying every possible way of communication method to contact Artesania no reply was ever recieved.Especialy annoying when in the instruction book they state a full guarantee of satisfaction, support and replacement parts.I had a badly manufactured stand in my kit, Wonderland pursued the replacement part and i recieved it 2 months later ! Thankyou Wonderland,
