Langton 1/1200 74 gun ship

Hi all here is the first post of the new year another ship for my fleet HMS Colossus 1787-1798 . She is a third rate 74 gun ship of the line she was at the battle of Groix and the battle of Cape St Vincent . After much hard use she was patrolling off Malta when Lord Nelson ordered her home as she was worn out . It would be a hard sail back to the UK on board she had sick and injured from the battle of the Nile, the body of Admiral Shuldam and antiques from Mr Hamiltons  collection at Naples .
 Caught in a gale approaching the channel she sought safety in ST Marys roads in the Scilly Islands but after three days she was blown aground off Samson Island with one loss of life. There was some salvage before she broke up .
So here she is in 1/1200 scale not my best work I had to rush this a bit !
Regards Gav .
