Scale: 1:48. A half block model of the 'Foudroyant' (1798), a 80-gun two-decker ship of the line made entirely in wood and constructed in bread and butter fashion. The hull has been hollowed out internally and is painted a copper colour below the waterline with the upperworks and bulwarks painted black. The gun decks are highlighted by a pair of thick, horizontal bands painted creamy-white, with the gunports finished in grey and edged in red. The model is complete with a square stern gallery, a curved quarter gallery, a rudder with its gudgeons and pintles and, at the bow, a set of drift trails, cathead and heads. The decks have been finished flush to the bulwarks and painted a light creamy-white colour. There are three stump masts painted in the same colour and a bowsprit (modern replacement) left in natural wood. The model is mounted on a wooden backboard painted creamy-white with a mahogany stained edging. Inscribed on the backboard is "20".
