44-gun frigate HMS 'Meander' (1840)
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull model of the 44-gun frigate HMS 'Meander' (1840) mounted on its original wooden baseboard. The hull is painted copper below the waterline to indicate sheathing whilst the black topsides have a white stripe along the level of the gun deck. It is rigged with stump masts, channels and deadeyes, whilst on deck the detail is sparse and includes hatch gratings, glazed skylight and pinrails. The 'Meander' was one of the modified 'Seringapatam' class of frigates and measured 159 feet in length by forty-one feet in the beam. It was originally ordered in 1824, launched 1840 and eventually after a fairly uneventful career, hulked in 1857. The model is decked. Plaque inscribed 'H.M.S. Meander 44 guns 1847-51'.
