Scale: 1:48. Plan showing the body plan with sternboard decoration, sheer lines with inboard detail, decoration and figurehead, and longitudinal half-breadth for Victory (1765), a 100-gun First Rate, three-decker. Even though the plan is dated 1830, the plan illustrates the vessel prior to her 1800-3 ‘Large Repair’ at Chatham Dockyard. The plan commemorates the death of Vice-Admiral Lord Nelson even though the plan represents the ship prior to when she was his flagship in 1803. There are also differences in gunport layoputs when compared to the plan signed by Thomas Slade in 1759.
