The HMS Vanguard was a battleship of the British Royal Navy. It was put into service in 1946 and is the last built battleship worldwide.

During her first “big” mission in 1947 she played a more representative role when she accompanied the British royal couple to South Africa. In the first half of 1949, the Vanguard was assigned to the British fleet in the Mediterranean, but was transferred to Portland at the end of the year as a training ship.

From 1955 she was the flagship of the reserve fleet and NATO’s headquarters ship. The decommissioning took place in the summer of 1960, immediately afterwards the dismantling work also began.

The advertised model ships are complete and accurate replicas of the “HMS Vanguard”

This model is 100 % hand made and crafted with great precision.
Exotic woods, such as teak, mahogany, rosewood or mango are being used, which result in precious, decorative and exclusive models as an end product. The hull is being sanded down carefully after completion, and if required, painted with clear coating material.

Ornaments and embellishments (for example canons, bull’s-eyes, anchor, dials or wheels et cetera) are made out of brass, chrome and other high-quality metals.

The sails are either out of cloth or silk, the mast is made out of wood and the hemp rope is made out of solid lisle. Some of these ropes have special knots, which allow the ropes to be retightened at any time.

Our models are strictly tested for quality, so that we can offer you a clean product. The satisfaction of our customers is our highest priority. All models are completely assembled upon shipping.
