1 Build the ultimate model of Britain s most famous warship

2 Week by week, build an authentic replica of Lord Nelson s famous flagship HMS Victory Overall dimensions Length: 1250mm (49¼ ) Height: 850mm (33½ ) Beam: 450mm (17¾ ) Scale: 1:84 The breathtaking 1:84 scale model is accurate to the last detail, including sails and rigging, and Victory s full complement of 104 guns. Build Lord Nelson s HMS Victory is a new weekly magazine that comes complete with all the parts to construct a superb model of Nelson s legendary flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar Britain s greatest naval engagement. Every issue of Build Lord Nelson s HMS Victory comes with a kit of parts to model this iconic ship of the line, including her sails, riggings, flags, armament and even crew members. Build Lord Nelson s HMS Victory includes a detailed step-by-step assembly guide showing you how to build your model, and the magazine is also packed with in-depth features about the age of sail. Read about life when ships like Victory ruled the waves, including stories of the key figures in naval history, great sea battles, how sailing warships were built and armed, and how the Royal Navy helped to defeat Napoleon and maintain the British empire. Your model is planked with natural hardwoods, which you can leave unpainted to show the construction (as shown left and below) or finish with the supplied paint to make an exact replica of Nelson s flagship (right). Actual size 1250mm x 850mm

3 Everything you need to construct an incredible and unique model to the highest standards Unique cutaway Optional visible interior You can choose to build a complete hull or leave off part of the planking to expose the gun decks. This is the ultimate model of HMS Victory, with superb, authentic detail and several unique features. Even if you are new to the art of marine modelling, the clear step-by-step instructions in the magazine will show you how to develop the skills you need to create a replica that does justice to Nelson s flagship. Incredible level of detail Exclusive figurines Solid metal figures Includes life-like models of Nelson and his deck crew, cast in metal. Complete sails and rigging Every rope and spar is accurately represented. Step-by-step instructions Just like the original The 1:84 scale permits every feature of the real ship to be reproduced. Accurate historical features Period touches include signal flags showing the first part of the Admiral s message before the Battle of Trafalgar: England expects that every man will do his duty. Authentic wood and metal construction Just like the real ship, the hull (shown roughly life-size above) is made by laying hardwood planking over wooden ribs, with metal fittings. Each piece of your model is superbly detailed and made from the highest quality materials. The clear instructions show how to assemble and finish the parts every step of the way. Marine modelling brings together a wide range of skills, including working with wood and metal, plus more specialist techniques for sail-making and rigging, painting and finishing. Even if you ve never tried this type of project before, you ll be able to put your Victory together in easy stages, learning the skills as you go, with a host of expert tips to guide you through assembling each new set of parts. You will also find handy hints and tips, plus a series of video demonstrations on our website (www.buildthevictory.com), where you can learn from other modellers experiences and share advice.

4 Each issue of your magazine is divided into four fascinating sections Nelson s World Marine Modelling Ships of the line Assembly Guide Discover how Lord Nelson became Britain s greatest naval hero, and why the battles that he and the Royal Navy fought were among the most important in European history. HMS Victory dates from the years of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, when much of Europe fell to the armies of France and her allies, bringing Britain under real threat of invasion. Nelson s Column in London s Trafalgar Square is one of the most recognizable monuments in Britain, commemorating a great hero and a famous naval victory. Each issue features double-page pictures of a superb model ship, providing inspiration for your own model Victory and revealing different construction techniques. Many of the models featured are very valuable antiques some dating back hundreds of years. Take a detailed look at the British, French and Spanish battleships that fought a century-long battle for empire on the high seas, and the formidable weapons that they turned upon one another. Each issue explains the construction of the real features that you are modelling, including how a wooden ship was built and sailed, technical breakdowns of the principal weapons, and detailed accounts of Victory s naval guns in action. See how to assemble your ship from the parts supplied with the magazine. This section explains all the modelling techniques you ll need to achieve superb results, and includes useful hints and tips to help you master the trickier skills involved. Discover the innermost secrets of the world s oldest commissioned warship the only survivor of the great naval battles of the Napoleonic Wars. Models of HMS Victory date back to the time the ship herself was built in the middle of the 18th century, and many have become a treasured part of the nation s maritime heritage.
