Georgian full hull model of a troopboat, starboard view, broadside
Scale: 1:24. A contemporary full hull model of a flat-bottomed troopboat (circa 1758), built in the Georgian style. The model is decked and equipped and contains 72 figures, several of which have come unstuck. It is one of a set of four troopboat models on loan from Greenwich Hospital (SLR2538-SLR2540). The model is distinguished by two pike-carrying troops at the stern. The oarsmen sat on small thwartship benches. The oars were rowed against the thole pins placed in the gunwales. A swivel gun was usually mounted on the stem-piece, as in this model, and sometimes a small cannon was placed in the slide, aft. All the interior fittings were detachable so that the boats could be carried in the transport. This troopboat has a round stern as opposed to those with a square transom (see SLR0498 and SLR0500).
