    I thought I'd add this little gem to the collection, which I stumbled across recently: plans for HMS Victory, depicting her as she was when launched in 1765.

    At first glance, she might not look all that different to the familiar Napoleonic lines, but take a look at this model showing the paint scheme: http://collections.rmg.co.uk/collections/objects/66475.html
    Now, is it just me, or does that version look more attractive than the Napoleonic design? :love

    I posted this with Hearts of Oak in mind, as the plans are very detailed and should be useful for accurately modelling the lower decks.
    And, of course, there's always the potential to use our existing model as a template to work from.
