Hi Everyone,

On my Victory I have made quite a few modifications. For me one of the most eye catching parts of the ship and this model must be the Gallery. I have hobbies in 3D modelling. So I took it upon myself to redesign the gallery from scratch. Using photos and accurate diagrams from the book ‘Anatomy of the ship’.

I have been requested by some Facebook friends to make more of these gallery sets. Seems as I have already gone to the great lengths to design this for my own. It was quite easy to make more for anyone here wanting to also enhance their model.

I am currently selling this gallery kit on eBay. Shipping around the world.

See here: http://ebay.us/4kNHWu?cmpnId=5338273189

Feel free to ask me anything.

Thanks,

Neil

PS, Mark kindly gave me permission to share this.

Yea I remember a chap called Mike who created something similar. But he stopped and hasn’t been active on the forum for a number of years.

No offence to his but I believe mine is an improvement. The window sizes on mine are very accurate. Also the balusters are not photo etch on mine, which I have also created and it didn’t capture the detail I was wanting. So I used a resin printer and designed them from scratch. I am really happy with the detail of the prints. The print process with resin is challenging and it takes along time. But the quality and detail makes up for it.

Lots new items will be added soon for the Victory.

Wow, these are amazing.

Makes me wish I had the kit.

I don't suppose anything is likely for the USS Constitution kit? BigGrin

Thanks! I now do 2 versions of the Gallery enhancement kit. I do the ‘kit version’ which is designed to give you the Balusters and mouldings to fit the kits gallery panels. This is only £20.

I also do a ‘deluxe version’ which is completely redesigned for plywood panels and photo etch parts for the windows. This improves the scale and accuracy of the windows and shape of the gallery. As the kits gallery is quite the wrong scale in quite a few areas. This is £80.

On my website we advertise we can make new items if requested. So yes we can look into doing similar for the USS constitution kit. But with me not knowing much about this kit, I would need someone to tell me what is in need of improvement on this kit and I will get on it.

Happy modelling :-)

Neil

Hi I have recently purchased the Deluxe Gallery enhancement kit and installed it on my model. WOW it is beyond amazing the detail is so precise, I am so glad that this was available because I was underwhelmed by the magazine build instructions and supplied parts. lucky for me this is availably now I have had an 8 year break from building after two house moves and have only recently started building her again, I had reached magazine 72 and have spent the last 7 weeks solid on furlough working on her again, and after watching Johns iconic military build on Youtube I picked up on the model scribe tool and your website and have purchased pretty much all of the enhancements, this model after the hours spent working on her is beginning to look stunning.
