This wonderful kit is the latest release in the highly acclaimed Victory Models series of high quality kits. HMS Vanguard (or HMS Bellerophon or HMS Elephant).Nelson's Vanguard was designed by Slade (of Victory fame) and was one of fourteen 3rd rate 74 gun ships which formed the Arrogant class. During this time, Britain was not at war so her build went ahead very slowly, being launched on 6th March 1787.
The kit includes the following. Laser cut wooden parts throughout. Many photo etched brass detail sheets that include window frames, deadeye strop/chainplate fittings, monograms and flintlock detail for the cannons, footrope stirrups and other fine mast and yard detail, gunport scuttles, hinges the list is endless. There are no less that twenty full size plans, which include very easy to follow rigging detail. Sail detail is also included, along with sail cloth if you wish to rig your model with main sails.The copper plates for below the waterline are of a completely new design. They are so accurate that there is a left and right side to the plates, and there are no unseemly over protruding nail heads, everything is scaled at 1:72nd. Accompanying the plans is a 31 page A3 size fully illustrated building manual, taking you through every stage of the critical hull construction. There is also a full English instruction booklet, describing every detail of each stage of the main construction, along with histories of the three vessels that are included.
