The Named Vessels in our 1:1200 Napoleonic Naval range.

HMS Victory
(100) 'at quarters'.

This model is rather special in that the gun port lids are open at right angles to the ship's side to show the menace of her broadsides.

The Victory, Nelson's flagship, was painted in the chequerboard pattern at the Battle of Trafalgar. This style of painting was Nelson's choice, so that the vessels would be more easily identified from that of the enemy, during battle.
