I have just purchased a Corel Victory on Australian Ebay. Does anyone have any experience with this kit (good :=) or bad :yikes: ) that you could share with me?

I'm attaching a excerpt of a post to an earlier post:
Not sure about what's involved in building the other kits mentioned, but I started the Victory Cross section and stopped at the point where you had to cut through the hull for making the gun port openings. After finishing the interior and exterior planking I was too nervous in fear of ruining the model. Since that time I had joined Bob Hunt's Freshman Practicum, and found it great way to learn the process of building one of these wooden models. If I had to do it over, I think I would cut out the gun port openings first, before the planking. Also, if you are going to add rope or other details to the cannons I would do this on each deck level before you add the above deck. Once all the decks are in place it's impossible to get in there to add the detail.

I'm not very experienced in ship models but I too have purchased this kit from ebay UK and I will be attempting it soon.
Although I haven't actually started it yet - I have found a good book (The period ship handbook Number 3 by Keith Julier) in which there is an article providing a reasonably detailed 'step by step' walkthrough-build for this kit.
Worth a look! By the way; I also bought the book off ebay!!! :o)
Good luck with the build.
All the jolly!

Some time ago I purchased the plans for Corel"s Victory . I found them to be quite accurate and easy to use. I specialise in only building from scratch and felt very challenged in getting gunports n right place in hull. I have found Corel about the best of the model makers with excellent instructions . Happy modelling
