I will post many HMS Victory models to choose from. Ok, so why the HMS Victory. I am choosing this model as it is always has been somewhat of a favorite for all, from Kids, to Adults. From Wooden to Plastic, and even Paper Stock.

It has been brought to my attention a few times of latest rhetoric and grandiloquence about piracy and keep it real, etc.

So, back to this point of "Real" - Here I present with many "versions" as I have read one person put it on another forum. Due to the privacy, I will not post the link to that topic to protect someones innocence.........Piracy has now been replaced with "versions". However, I guess as to the author or writer, it is convenient to use the term that best fits their drama.

So, without further delay, here are some HMS Victories to choose from as you can see their are so many "versions". (really ?) versions / piracy.......piracy / versions.... getting dizzy here.

But just don't let any of these step on anyone's toes, then it becomes Piracy - Oh my, or is it versions.... !!!

Oh, so if you want to see the "Real" HMS Victory, it is parked at the
