Hope you enjoy these snaps taken on a recent visit. The ship is dismasted and undergoing a 15yr / £25m restoration; since I am close to rigging my model I was keen to see the Victory's rigging to make some sense of the plans, so it took the wind out of my sails a bit (bad pun). Following a complete laser scan it seems the hull is bulging due to inadequate support in the dry dock - although probably the best they could do 100 years ago. Still worth a visit though. There will be quite a few posts to come, hope that is OK, but I really don't want to get into something like Facebook.

My pleasure, Donnie, especially for the guys not in the UK who may not get the opportunity to visit these sights - hope you have the time to check out the other photos. Regards.

These photos are stunning. Thanks so much for posting them. I'll never get the chance to see this magnificent ship in person living in Canada. I truly envy you. The photos will greatly assist me with my model.

You're welcome, John. In 15 years time when they've put her back together I'll post some more! Regards.

Oh sure. Put the pressure on me. Now I have to make it to 80 to see the next batch of photos. Something to look forward to. Probably take me that long to finish the model anyways.
