This ship model was hand crafted using original plans from either the National Maritime Museum in London or from the Smithsonian Institution in Washington.  All of the sail plans were drawn by noted naval architects and historians.  The hulls of the models are carved from cherry and pear woods, with keels, stems and rudders from holly. The masts are brass or steel rod, and the sails are made from acid-free art paper. Ship length is 2.25 inches.

Built in 1765, HMS Victory was one of the largest sailing warships in the Royal Navy. She carried over 100 large cannon, and was manned by a crew of almost 1000 sailors and officers. After taking part in several successful fleet engagements under other admirals, she became the flagship of Lord Horatio Nelson. On October 21, 1805 she was the spearhead of the ships that broke the line of larger French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar. Although gaining a great victory, Lord Nelson was killed during the action, making this the most bittersweet of the Royal Navy battles. HMS Victory is still on the active list of the Royal Navy, moored in the harbor town of Portsmouth, where she is open to visitors. Please click on picture to enjoy a magnified view.
