Pete (Jeep)


With his spectacular model of HMS Victory...which is STILL the flagship of the Royal Navy! Built in 1765, she has an 18” thick hull of lateral-running HARD English oak on the exterior, a 6” vertically-running sandwich of teak, and an inner hull of lateral-running oak again. Cannonballs just bounce off her. When you see the real thing in Portsmouth---so bloody MASSIVE---you can easily understand why the English beat the crap out of the Spanish.

THREE gun decks!

Ain’t that Jeep a beaut?

With his mint Hotchkiss

Pretty nifty, huh?
