Full hull model of the 'Britannia' (1719), a 100-gun three-decker, first-rate ship of the line
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull model of the 'Britannia' (1719), a 100-gun three-decker, first-rate ship of the line, built in the Georgian style. The model is decked and equipped, and has been made to split along the gun deck, revealing the interior layout and construction. It is mounted on an original baseboard with a later wooden plaque inscribed 'The Worshipful Company of Shipwrights presented by Walter Leslie Viscount Runciman of Doxford Prime Warden 1940. In memory of his father Walter Viscount Runciman of Doxford, PC prime warden 1926'. The model is unusual in that it has been made from a soft wood as opposed the normal harder fruitwoods. The 'Britannia' was launched in October 1719 at Woolwich and measured 175 feet along the gun deck by 50 feet in the beam and was 1895 tons burden. It never saw active service and was latterly employed as a hospital ship at Sheerness before being broken up at Chatham in 1749. See also SLR0410.
