Terence here .my 1st build log ,started building the victory some 5 years ago then moved into a retirement village everything stopped to much to do here so modelling stopped. Then the pandemic hit us everything closed down luckily our grandson wanted the black pearl which I finally finished about 3 weeks ago. Had a few problems and by chance found ships of scale Tony H helped me a lot so here I am starting to finish the victory. Its not a kit comes weekly and parts come with it. I have attached a couple of photos to show where I am up to.As you can see I have a lot to of planking to go ,Iam up to week 45

Hi Terence good to see your log, I thought only Mamoli kits used the metal gunports. Keep the post coming and call out if you have a problem.

1st day of many started planking today all the fiddle bits I never did 5 years ago when that's finished I can get stuck into some serious planking so you will not here from me for a few days. One thing I will need a lot of help on is the color decided not to have copperplate on so if anyone can help me I would most grateful, put a couple of photos when I plank sometimes tur upside down

Good morning Terence. The challenge of the Victory. I don’t know if the kit provide the wales. These are strakes along the hull, where the the black is painted. They where included in the build of ships to add strength to the hull. These make a huge difference to the look of the model.

I enjoy your deck and the tree nails. The copper color below the waterline fits really well. Happy modeling. Cheers Grant

Ahh the beauty of modelers choice - I have to give it up to you as the 100 scale is small. I’m doing the 1:78 scale and battle enough with that. Well done and have fun Terence. Cheers
