Revell HMS Victory Gift Set 05758

His Majesty's Ships, particularly the Victoryas their flagship, had ever reason to celebrate the 21st october 1805, since they had succeeded in defeating the Franco-Spanish fleet. However celebrations were dampened because the Victory's Commander, Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson, lost his life on his ship on the very day of the great Victory. The great hero's tomb is in St. Paul's Cathedral, London.

Today, H.M.S. Victory lies in dry-dock in Portsmouth in all her splendour. The whole of England was outraged when it was suggested the ship be scrapped following the Napoleonic wars, so she was reprieved and became the stationary flagship of the commander-in-chief. In 1922 the Victory underwent a comprehensive restoration paid for out of donations. She was the opened to the public as a memorial.

This Revell kit 05758includes a few basic colours, thinner paintbrush and glue as well as an impressive 42 x 60 cm poster.
