no rob I don't , I have been following a modeler on pete coleman's site , michaelD , but all of his photo's have disappeared , and he hasn't posted in a while , so I don't know what's happened to him .If you have any I would love to see them mate . 

PS- I forgot to mention , that dafi has sent me some very nice images of model's , done around that time , which have been a big help .

Your beautiful armoire has fallen on hard times.

What did you use for the hammock material?  Looking to do something similar.  Thanks in advance.

bob , I was lucky , as I had a spare set of hammock's from another kit , I just joined two together , and painted . I know some other modeler's have used milliput .

if you are interested , dafi , has a magnificent set of photo etch for the victory , it's expensive but , well worth it . if you click onto it their is even a PDF for each sprue , on how to apply and modeler's tip's . 

thank's steve .

I need a little help from the learned fraternity please . I found this model of the victory 1765 , and it seems to show that their was ladder's down to the quarter deck from the poop deck , not the landing platform on the 1805 version , am I reading this right guy's

Seems to me Steve it would be a pretty steep angle without that platform, plus you'd be stepping onto the cannon to get to the ladder. The Mcnary model, the Wyille model and the other model at the NMM clearly show the platforms.

Wonderful progress :-) If you ever feel like it there are 2 things that came to my attention: The gap in the hammock cranes and the the small platform were not in use at this time, underneath the stool for the shrouds is missing, like in the small skech.
