I have just purchased this off of ebay, DeAgostini's HMS Victory, magazine no's 1-80, magazine no's 1-20 have been built but not to a very good standard judging by the photo's, ( yeah i know, like i'm an expert ) the planking will all have to be taken off and started again, hopefully i can save most of the planking, then all of the ribs have to be checked for alignment, i dont hold out a lot of hope for the structure that it's all square, it might have to all be taken apart and started again, still you never know, i haven't actually received it yet, i wont be starting this for quite a while as i have to do a lot more work on my DelPrado Victory, but when i do i will probably build it in conjunction with my Sovereign, i really couldn't turn it down as it was up for a buy it now price of £80.00.

Hi Gibbo, who's a lucky boy then.....BigGrin BigGrin .. Am sure it will be a great build for you and looking at the pics it would be worth taking most of it apart and doing again, shouldn't be too difficult a task and am sure you will be able to salvage a lot of the planks.... Cool Cool .. Good luck with her, I look forward to seeing how you progress with her.. Cool Cool

Regards

Alan

Thanks Alan
Been going through the diary of your SOTS build of late and been taking lots of notes, a truly cracking build, when the DeAg Vic arrives i'll put up some more detailed pics so we can see exactly where we are with her.

Thank you Dominick, it's going to be a while before i start it yet, gives me time to think about keeping it wood or painting it, yours is coming along very nicely.

Hi Paul.

Great find there and a really good price too!Cool After 'DelPrado-ing' in 1/100 you'll probably need a set of full sized Black and Decker power tool for this monster!BigGrin
Looking forward to watching this one come together, all that space to super detail!!Drool

Best of luck!

Lovely find there Gibbo. I am sure you will do a good surgery restore on her, she deserves it. Good luck with your build.

That's a great find Paul, bargain of the year BigGrin
You must be looking forward to doing that after the tiny Del Prado BigGrin
I've been taking a break from mine, was getting frustrated that the channels and chain plate assemblies weren't going too well. So thought it best to walk away till I feel more positive about carrying on Mellow

Always a smart move that one Alan, haven't done a lot with mine lately either, the bow detail is causing me grief, it's gotta be scratch built, i think i'm on my fourth or fifth go at it now, I think i'm going to be able to walk around the deck of the Deag when it's done.
Cheers
Paul
