After the sudden "Crash" of my Spitfire build i decided to come back to the HMS Victory and tackle the x-section build i purchased years ago.

Stealing some of the tips of Laszlo`s build i started to build up the ribs.

Now that is a novel way of holding the parts together. Also have this kit in my stash, so will be watching with interest.

Thanks guys for your comments - but as i mentioned - especially the LEGO - idea is courtesy of Laszlo - as you can see in his diary!

So pleased you've found something to replace your Spitfire build and its great to see you've chosen the Victory X-Section. It builds into a superb show piece and I'm very sure you'll do a fab job with it Walter. Great start you've made and I look forward to seeing more as you progress.....Cool Cool Cool Cool

Regards

Alan

Thanks guys - just a small update for today.

Prepared the stand with some felt to prevent the hull from beeing scratched.

Put a semigloss varnish on the stained parts.
