HMS Victory Model Ship Kit
Premier Ship Models offer many fine scale replica models of the famous HMS Victory, Lord Nelson’s flagship, which sailed in to the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 and helped defeat Napoleon. The HMS Victory is still afloat today in Portsmouth, UK, and she has been commemorated through museums and artwork.
We have previously built a model of the HMS Victory for the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square, London, where there is a famous statue of Lord Nelson atop a column. The model now sits at Greenwich Maritime Museum in a bottle. The HMS Victory in Portsmouth attracts visitors across the world and is a perfect example of the craftsmanship and ingenuity of British shipbuilders during the 1700’s, a period, which saw the rise of the dominance of the Royal Navy and the consequential growth of the British Empire.
Premier Ship Models offer both ready-made models of the HMS Victory, which you can view here, and model kits of the HMS Victory, like this one. You can reconstruct the HMS Victory yourself using this model kit.
