HMS 'Victory' (1765); warship; 100 guns; 1st rate
Scale: Unknown. A model of HMS 'Victory' (1765) made in plaster with wood, metal, paper, and cotton fittings which has been realistically painted. The model depicts the vessel at 13.40 on 21 October 1805 at the height of the Battle of Trafalgar and the ship is shown with damage sustained in the battle. The ship is three masted, ship rigged and with set sails, showing shot damage. The mizzen mast is broken and the mainmast is partly broken. Dark grey smoke is shown billowing from the deck. The hull is painted black with white stripes along the three gun decks and an additional red stripe along the upper gun deck. The deck is painted white and with the fittings painted black. . There is an elaborately carved and gilded figurehead and stern. A white ensign is flying from the peak of the gaff, a Union flag flying from a halyard rigged to the bowsprit, a cross of St George flying from the top of the foremast and part of Nelson's Trafalgar signal flying from a halyard, rigged to the foremast.
