HMS 'Agamemnon' (1852)
Scale: 1:48. A half block model of HMS 'Agamemnon' (1852), a 80-gun two-decker 2nd rate warship. The model is made in wood with some metal fittings 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 and divided by a thin white line. The gun decks are highlighted by a pair of thick, horizontal bands painted creamy-white and the gunports, complete with guns and portlids, are painted black. The model is complete with a rounded stern and quarter gallery, a rudder fitted to the sternframe, a set of drift rails and a cathead. The figurehead is missing. The hull is also fitted with three sets of channels, complete with chain plates and deadeyes, most of which are painted black. The decks have been finished just below the level of the bulwarks and painted a light brown-cream colour. There are three stump masts and a bowsprit of the same colour, together with a funnel mounted on deck. The model is mounted on a wooden backboard painted creamy-white with a mahogany stained edging.
