Artist Ian Brennan has spent an amazing 17 years carving a beautiful model of Nelson’s famous flagship HMS Victory out of one of the massive 400 year old original timbers from the great ships lower gun deck. The oak beam was removed as part of a restoration many years ago, and Brennan has spent over 5000 hours carving against the grain of the rock hard wood ever since. The 1/66th scale ship is accurate right down to the 37 billowing sails and 200ft of rigging, giving a marvellous impression of the ship racing to Trafalgar on the eve of the battle with the combined fleets of France and Spain.
The ship has been finished in time to celebrate the 205th anniversary of Nelson’s great victory on the 21st October.
