Thanks Navyman. Yes it is two volumes, the book and then the plansets.s-l1600.jpg


s-l1600 (1).jpg

Here is the description:
<1966 1st edition (there was only ever one print run so a 2nd edition would be the rare one!) HMSO publication of A R Bugler's work covering the construction, restoring and repairing of the wonderful HMS Victory.

This is a private copy of the book and the drawings though offered in a library owned storage box.

The book is in mint condition, the drawings box is in good condition with some staining and fading. The drawings are all in either mint or very good condition.

My photos aren't brilliant but at least you can see the condition and scale of the drawings. All the main drawings are in 1/48th scale which is more than twice the size of the Heller model kit and twice the size of Caldercraft's beautiful model kit.

The set is a must for anyone interested in the ship and navy of its time and for any model makers.>

The seller has a 99.7 positive rating on eBay with 2,216 reviews. So my fingers are crossed. But it looks good. I will let you know when it arrives...which is estimated around August 17th.

Seems, that my review was helping you to make the decision to buy this planset.
I am happy that this was helpful.

It sure was Uwek. It was the deciding factor. Thanks for your review, on this and other books. I also purchased the 4-set 74 Gun Ship based on your review. I am still not sure if I need the planset for those books.

A very interesting 3D - scan of the HMS Victory


In March The Downland Partnership Ltd were presented with the huge task of creating a 3D model of the HMS Victory. The survey forms the first step in a complete restoration of the ship with involvement by BAE Systems, the MOD and Fenton Holloway Ltd. Downland have been commissioned to create an individual 3D model of every structurally significant part of the ship. This will be used both as a means to analyse the ships structural strengths and weaknesses and as resource for future wood replacement schemes. The survey will be carried out using the latest in survey technology including Laser-Scanners and HDR Spheron cameras.

There was an article in a UK news site back in 2013 that mentioned it might take them close to 20 years to finish work on this project. Would like to learn something more current as to how far along they are right now.
