HMS Victory scale 1:78

Postby JoeF » Thu Sep 15, 2016 5:09 am

Hi I am new to the forum and I need some help. I have two sheet plans No 1 and 2 for the Keel, bulheads and deck. After cutting all the pieces and assemble them as shown in the photos, now I am stuck as I do not have the plan No 3 for the other decks and the stern gallery. Can someone help me to continue on this project?

Hi Joe,
Have you tried writing to the Kit MFG. It took a while but I had a similar situation and wrote to Constructo. They sent me a complete set of plans no charge.
Welcome and good luck. :greetings-clapyellow: :music-rockout: :handgestures-salute:
Regards
Mike

Hi Mike,
I have sent an email to Constructo and I am waiting for their reply. In the meantime I got the missing sheet plans of the HMS Victory scale 1:78 from this website.
http://www.shipmodell.com/index_files/S ... ICTORY.htm

They have 400 plans free of charge. Go to FREE PLANS on the left and then choose your model and download the full set pressing the arrow on the bottom of the thumbnail.
I have already printed all sheets to continue building the model. :)

Thanks Gary and Mike. I am cutting the decks and see if they fit in their place trying to do some changes as well.

Here is another link that is very interesting. It has lots of photos of the Victory scale 1:78 and others.

There is the gallery of the ships models sold. Enjoy :)

Thanks Gary.
All of the decks are cut and checking that they all fit in place. Now I will start glueing the pieces and the dummy gun rails.

I have glued the Keel, bulkheads and the two decks. While I am waiting for the glue to dry I am working on another project in mohagony wood carving which is that of a sailing ship. I use Pfeil tools for wood carving.
