HMS Victory Nelson’s Flagship

HMS Victory
Nelson’s Flagship
HMS Victory is the oldest commissioned warship in the world, and is still manned by the Royal Navy. Her most famous
action was against Napoleon and the French at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, under the command of Admiral Lord
Nelson. The battle was won by the English, but Nelson was tragically killed by a sniper’s bullet. It was decided that
Victory should be preserved as a lasting reminder of the Royal Navy’s supremacy in the days of sail, and today she
attracts over 350,000 visitors each year in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

Cutty Sark
The world’s last intact clipper ship, now preserved in a
spectacular dry dock at Greenwich, London. Long, lean
and beautiful, she was built in 1869 for the tea trade but
made redundant by the completion of the Suez Canal,
which made steam ships more economic. Instead she
earned her living, and incredible reputation for speed, in
the long distance wool trade (from Australia).

Limited Edition Cutty Sark Model with Furled Sails
Limited to just 200 Pieces, this superb wood-planked, hollow-hulled model depicts Cutty Sark with furled
sails, and is mounted on sections of timber decking that were removed from the ship during her
2007-11 restoration. Small sections of timber have been bonded together to created a deck-like effect and
as each piece has slightly different characteristics and colours, no two bases are alike. The spars and rigging
are amazingly detailed and support 5 full and 16 furled sails. The deck carries lots of features including
shore boats, hatches and pin rails. Each Cutty Sark timber base is individually numbered with its position in
the Limited Edition series of just 200. A royalty from each sale goes back to help maintain the ship and her
artefacts. Length 46cm, height 30cm.

This beautiful wood-planked, hollowhulled model depicts Cutty Sark under full
sail, and is mounted on a section of timber
decking that was removed from the ship
during her 2007-11 restoration. The spars
and rigging are amazingly detailed, with
21 sails in total, whilst the deck has lots
of features including shore boats, hatches
and pin rails. Her bottom has a realistic
Muntz plating effect. Cutty Sark has been
preserved in dry dock at Greenwich since
1954, but by 2007 had started to become
dangerously weak. A massive restoration
project backed by public and corporate
donations and funding from the Lottery
Heritage Fund saw her not only restored
– despite a massive fire in 2007 – but
also raised up three metres within her dry
dock home and partially glazed allowing a
museum, gallery and restaurant to be built
immediately underneath the length of her
hull – a stunning view and one that is unique
in the world. Each Cutty Sark timber base is
individually numbered with its position in
the Limited Edition series of 1869. A royalty
from each sale goes back to help maintain
the ship and her artefacts. Length 46cm,

Mary Rose & RMS Titanic
Mary Rose
On 19 July 1545, Henry VIII’s flagship Mary Rose sank, for reasons that are still not fully
understood, just a few hundred yards from Portsmouth harbour. Over 400 years later her hull
was rediscovered, buried in thick Solent mud and remarkably well-preserved - so well in fact
that in 1982 it was possible to raise her from the seabed.
Mary Rose hull
Mary Rose Models
Built between 1509 and 1511, her carvel construction permitted the cutting of cannon ports in
the hull sides so that she was one of the first ships able to fire a “broadside”. Our models are
approved by the Mary Rose Trust.

RMS Titanic
On 15 April 1912, RMS Titanic hit an iceberg and sank
with the loss of over 1500 lives - two thirds of those on
board - in one of the most deadly peacetime shipping
tragedies in history. Ironically, she had set sail on her
maiden voyage from Southampton to New York as the
largest and most advanced passenger steamship in the
world, widely billed as unsinkable.

Helped Titanic’s First

Authentic replica of the

Mate, as used so dramatically
in the film by Kate Winslet
to call her rescuers. Britishmade by Acme, who supplied

Sovereign of The Seas
Sovereign of the Seas, the 17th Century Navy’s finest ship.
Commissioned by King Charles I, she was the first ever warship to
have three full gun decks, carrying 102 high-tech bronze cannon.
Her size and costs were unprecedented - the gilding alone cost the
same as the whole hull of a two-deck ship! - and she later proved
herself unbeatable in battle. Our model has amazing detail for the
price, with authentic (wood) decks, rigging and cotton sails. Supplied
ready for display and comes with a history leaflet.

Atlantic - Holder of the Longest-Standing
Speed Record in Yachting History
During her sea trials in 1903 Atlantic achieved a speed of twenty knots.
Here was a schooner with serious race-winning potential. Two years later,
she proved it by sailing 3006 miles from Sandy Hook on the Eastern
Seaboard to The Lizard in Cornwall to win the Kaiser’s Cup. And in the
process set a speed record that would stand for an unprecedented 93 years.
Although no longer in existence, the memory of Atlantic lives on in this
elegant model. Plank on frame construction and finely detailed from her
rigging and ratlines to her real canvas sails. Length 80cm.
