Hello people!

I am opening a new topic for my new project - HMS Victory
The scale is 1/100, the company is Heller.
Several Years ago, I bought the model from a friend who had started it, but refused to finish
:)

The model collected dust on the shelf for a long time, and now his time has come.
I will not go into the history of the ship - anyone can dig in Google.
In my opinion, this is the most common ship model - there is a lot of material for it, etc.
I'm still working on the plan in my head, I'll start slowly and see what comes out.
The ship is an order.
Here's what I have:

Hi Moarein,
Pity the hull halves and stern galley have been glued together, it will be that much harder to paint the inside red and pick out all the detail on the stern.
It's a great kit, nice photo etch.
You've got a lot of work ahead of you, enjoy yourself while building.
Cheers,
Stephen.

Will you alter the as-done paintwork in any way? It looks very cleanly executed, but there is the more recent discovery of Victory’s true Trafalgar yellow, which is a more salmony color.

Anyway, as I also have this kit sitting in storage, I will happily follow along! I was lucky enough to find it in a Scranton, PA hobby shop, in 1995, for the even then reasonable price of $80.

The ship was started by a friend of mine, who painted the hull with the colors seen in the photo.
I will remove them, and repaint it with the right yellow :)
The black paint also is not this black :)
I will use some very dark grey for the black :)

Step 2:
The cannons are two groups - large and small.
The large ones are 60 pieces, and only the barrel can be seen.
Of the small ones, maybe a maximum of 16 are visible - I cleaned them thoroughly. Waiting for painting.
The gun carriages are painted with Tamia's H37 Tan base.
The visible 16 carriages have been completely cleaned.
