The Dedication of the True Fanatic

A man in UK spent ten years building a scale model of Admiral Nelson's flagship HMS Victory:

More photos of this magnificent work at the link.

I got to visit Victory in the early 1980's when I was in the US Navy, on a port visit to Portsmouth. I had photos of the ship with the US flag flying at the mainmast as a courtesy; those didn't follow me here to the US when my marriage broke up and property was divided. Wonderful old ship.
