Very nice find, thanks for sharing! To me the model looks very similar to the real thing and is well proportioned. The size and quality of the model and the fame of HMS Victory makes me think of an official Lego set; I'm sure it would be very similar!

Very cool "mini" ship.  I really like the original idea and the removable hull.  Not sure if I like the modernization of the ship though, guess I'm more of a traditional sailor :pir-classic:.  Good find though!
