Victory At Last

HMS Victory

Victory at last... after 5,000 hours carving 104 miniature guns, 200ft of rope and 37 sails from a piece of Nelson's flagship

This stunning wooden replica of HMS Victory is the result of 17 years of dedication and skill.
It is also a ship off the old block – for sculptor Ian Brennan has spent 5,000 hours carving it from a piece of timber from the real thing.
The model of Nelson’s flagship contains 200ft of intricate ‘rope’, 104 miniature guns, 37 little wind-filled sails, and flags spelling out Nelson’s stirring signal: ‘England expects every man to do his duty.’
