'Chichester', port broadside
Scale: 1:72. A contemporary full hull model of the 'Chichester' (circa 1706), an 80-gun two-decker second-rate ship of the line, built plank on frame in the Navy Board style. The model is decked, equipped and mounted on a modern wooden display baseboard. The model has suffered some damage over time. The decking and bulwark rails were restored during the early 1970s. The royal monogram 'AR' is inscribed in the decoration on the stern galleries. The 'Chichester' was a rebuild of an earlier 80-gun ship of the same name and was eventually launched at Woolwich Dockyard in 1706. Measuring 155 feet along the gun deck by 43 feet in the beam, it had a tonnage of 1278 burden. When re-built from the earlier two-decker, the 'Chichester' had its 80-gun armament rearranged on three decks with the upper deck guns still disposed as they had been on the quarterdeck and forescastle of the earlier two-deckers (see the 'Boyne' SLR0006). The 'Chichester' had a fairly uneventful career, taking part in the battle of Toulon in 1744 and later, in 1753, it was re-built as a 74-gun two-decker.
