The Billing Boats HMS Victory wooden ship model accurately recreates the real life vessel.
HMS Victory was launched in 1765 at Chatham Dockyard and was commissioned in 1778. She continued in active service for the next 34 years which included her most famous moment at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. In 1812 the Victory was retired from frontline duty and anchored in Portsmouth Harbour, on the south coast of England. For the next 110 years the Victory remained at her moorings in Portsmouth Harbour fulfilling a combination of practical and ceremonial roles. In 1922, amid fears for her continued survival, the Victory was moved into Portsmouth's Royal Naval Dockyard and placed in No2 Dry Dock. Her Majesty's Ship Victory is the only surviving naval warship that represents the skill of naval dockyard shipwrights, ship designers and the industrial ability of Britain during the mid 18th century.
The model is a beautiful double plank-on-frame lasercut wooden ship kit, with brass cannon, wooden blocks and a beautiful cast bronze figurehead. The model is a complete replica of the actual ship that lies in dry-dock at Portsmouth. When complete, this is one of the largest kits of the HMS Victory on the market, and, at a scale of 1/75, it has a length of 134cm from stern to bowsprit, and a height of 89 cm.
