'Bellona', stern detail

Scale: 1:38.4. A contemporary full hull model of the 'Bellona' (1760), a 74-gun two-decker ship of the line, built in the Georgian style. The model, depicted on a slipway, is decked and equipped, with the name, 'Bellona' painted on the counter of the stern. A drawer at the stern end opens to extend the slipway to twice its length from which the model can be 'launched'.

This is one of the earliest models to show a coppered hull. Copper was introduced to protect the underwater hull from the attack of marine boring worms, molluscs and weed growth, all of which required dry-docking the ship for expensive and time-consuming repairs. Because of the projected expense of coppering the entire fleet, this model was probably commissioned to enlist the support of King George III.
