my father has a model of the Victory, which is a slightly bigger ship than this one.

Very beautiful, the colors are amazing :) The way you've painted it makes me think to the impressionist movement... How much measures the painting ? It seems to be a big one...

This is an awsome piece..I know it was a hard life for a sailor back then,but it just makes you want to be there onboard seeing the world..
My Grandad was a sailor during the war on HMS Achilles and would tell us of his travels..so I love seeing work like this..

Thanks. Something else we have in common, one of my grandads was a petty officer on Motor Torpedo Boats. I had quite a thing for ships when I was growing up.
