Thanks for posting Captain K! This is an amazing ship and must have take quite some time to construct. Do you know the builder (Big Boy)? If so, could you invite him over so he can give some background info about the build?

Here some information of the builder of the ship.
He has asked me to write this.

Built of: Dirk Delorme, Berlin

Became the Lego ship in the scale 1: 45 built.
It is 195 cm long and 40 cm wide with bowsprit and jib tree.
Pure construction time: 3 months
Planning and material purchase:  more than 1 year
Obstructed pieces: approx. 45 000 Lego pieces
It is equipped with 128 cannons. Of this 104 are under deck and also self-made.
At the TSL exhibition in Berlin there were approx. 100 mini-figures on deck.

The Lego model sailing ship follows the big English liners with three cannon decks from the 18th century. These ships were equipped with three masts, a sail area of approx. 5,500 m ². A crew of 1000 men. As an arming there were 120 to 130 cannons on board.
The Victory was the flagship of Admiral Nelson in the battle of Trafalgar.

We should send these famous builders invitations to join our site and ask them to show some of there masterpieces. Could be good for publicity.

Whenever I see an amazing ship, I think what will someone do next to top the previous, what will give me that extra amazement.  
I can't begin to believe what can top this, if it can ever be topped! I'm in absolute shock.
Lovin' every Brick of it!

I live about ten minutes walk away from the Victory in Portsmouth. This MOC is an unbelievable recreation of a great ship! Well done the city of Portsmouth would be proud to see this in our home town!

I'm so jealous that you live that close to such a great piece of history! I plan on going to see the Victory myself sometime next year. :jollyroger:
