A few pics of my latest ship – HMS Victory, Langton 1/1200

Beautiful model. Not so sure about the "infamous" comment.

Only in so far as she was Nelson's flagship, and is still a commissioned ship in the RN after over 200 years.

Perhaps more infamous in the UK….

Famous, maybe. But why infamous?!!

I would argue that HMS Victory was famous rather than infamous. Put it down to semantics.

Infamous – deserving of or causing an evil reputation; shamefully malign; detestable: an infamous deed.

Fair enough! Edited! :-)

Bit of a wreck now as are many of the other RN ships.

From what I have read the older parts of the ship, those done with 18th and 19th Century Timbers are actually in much better shape than those repaired recently. Of course here in the US we have problems as well, especially with the Battleship Texas.
