Over the last few months I have been building a 1:72 scale cross section of HMS Victory.
 
The model is made almost entirely out of wood, and constructed in pretty much the same way as the real thing. Highly detailed, when finished it will include fully rigged cannons, sailors hammocks, weapons and shot and even ballast in the ships hold.
 
I have over 60 photographs of my progress so far, so you can see for yourself how it gets put together...be a looooong post this one lol

Do you have to paint the parts or varnish the wood etc, or is it like that when it comes?

No all the parts come as bare wood, and a variety of different wood types etc. Some of the parts are laser-cut and stored in a fret, like the parts for the ribs etc. Good in the sense they don't have to be fashioned by hand, bad in the sense that you end up with that dark 'burnt' edge to certain parts, which then needs to be very lightly sanded to remove the charring, but being careful not to alter the shape/size of the parts too much.

 

Some smaller parts, like buckets, are pre-fashioned and just require painting/staining etc whilst others, like the seamans chests, which I have yet to make, have to be made from scratch.

 

Other parts are made from brass, which is a total b***h to paint, and cast metal and so on.

 

 

This particular one is a weekly part work by Deagostini, but I started late so was able to order the back issues to catch up. Makes it a bit better as not sat waiting for 2 weeks of a month not being able to do anything because of waiting for the next subscription to arrive.

I am working on this one inbetween waiting for my next set of parts for the Sovereign of the Sea's model, which is a full model:

You can see the sort of detail these models have quite well from that link.

Started making some of the finer details today, specifically the "seamans chests". There needs to be about a dozen of these in total.

 

068.jpg

The pic above is the parts for the base.

069.jpg

Parts for the sides, top.

070.jpg

Sides on first, then when dry sanded to align correctly.

071.jpg

Then the front/back on, again sanded once dry.

072.jpg

Top fitted, stained and the finer details added.

 

The size is about 15mm x 10mm x 10mm, tiny as you can see from the photo's.

Yeh Deagostini do a number of full kits. The one I am working on is actually an extension to their full HMS Victory model. They also do a full Soveriegn of the Sea's model which I am also collecting. They do another one of the battleship Yamato as well, and also other kits, a Mitsubishi Zero, constructed exactly the same way as the original, and Lewis Hamilton's 2008 Mclaren, all of them incredibly detailed.

DeAgostini's customer service unfortunately lets them down, as they don't have their own in-house CS, but rather contract the service out to the lowest bidder :S26:

 

 

Anyway, these are the chest's that will be going on the model itself, complete with rope handles:

The Victory collection, for the main ship model, is 120 issues, 1 issue per week, and only finished a few months ago. I think it was 2010 (ish) that one was first released, although I think they released one before that years ago, possibly either HMS Endeavour or the HMAV The Bounty. Years ago they did a R/C Spitfire, that was quite a nice series, short too at only 60 issues. The Soveriegn of the Sea's that I am collecting now is 135 issues.

 

Their customer service is horrendous, I am suprised they stay in business.

 

They don't seem too bad for getting subscription issues out on time, I've not had any problems there, but when it comes to ordering back issues, or other items from their online shop, it takes an age. It's about two or three weeks before they even debit the funds from your card, and a further three or four weeks before what you bought actually turns up.
