I do not ususally do ships but as part of the Airfix Kits Group Build I just finished the Airfix HMS Victorious.

Apart from the kit, I added additional photo etch from White Ensign from several of their PE sets.

I have tried to make it as accurate as possible to its configuration on its first post reconstruction commission.

The Scimitar and the Sea Vixens are from the kit, whilst the Gannet is a heavily modified Sykraider from the kit. The two AEW Skyraiders are from Tumbling dice, whilst the NA39 Buccaneer is a heavily modified Tumbling Dice Scimitar. Not having the intended helicopters arrive in time I requisitioned two Wessex from the Fujimi HMS Eagle kit.

Roundels are from Doms Decals, the shpp pennant number from White Ensign and the rest from my printer.
