    Not strictly a card model in the conventional sense, but I got this for Christmas and thought you might like to see it:-

    A fairly simple kit really, but it builds into quite an impressive model I think. HMS Victory is something of a special ship to me, not just because I'm a patriotic Englishman, but also because the real thing is only about 5 miles or so away from me at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard :). My avatar is the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, located by the dockyard.

    You can find the link to view some more photos on my website.

    I actually got to see this ship and this simple model captures the essence of this ship, which is a national treasure!! ;)
