Amati / Victory Models HMS Vanguard on MSW

Recently, a customer had some questions regarding rigging of the HMS Vanguard, one of the best, most detailed wooden ship model kits available today. In the process of helping him out, we ran across a build log of the kit by an Australian ship modeler that goes by the screen name RMC.

The model was apparently completed just over a year ago, and the pictures posted show us an absolutely gorgeous build of this extremely complex model.

This is a 1:72nd-scale kit of the 74-gun ship of the line that served as Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of the Nile in August of 1798. The completed model measures about 46″ long and 35″ high.

The build log on Model Ship World is about 32 pages long and shows and discusses many construction issues that were dealt with in building the model. This is very difficult model, and the builder shows tremendous skill and care in its construction.

We highly recommend checking out this build log! The build log can be found here:

This kit can be built as HMS Vanguard, but also includes figureheads and decorations to build it as one of the sister ships HMS Elephant or HMS Beleraphon.
