HMS 'Agamemnon' (1906)
Scale: 1:48. A shipbuilders half block model of battleships HMS 'Agamemnon' and HMS 'Lord Nelson' (both 1906). The model is made in wood with some metal fittings. The hull has been made using bread and butter construction and has been gauged out internally. The lower part of the hull is painted light brown and is fitted with a rudder at the stern and a bilge keel amidships. The upper portion of the hull, to deck level, is painted light grey and marked with portholes and a pair of raised hawsepipe fittings just above the round bow. The single deck is painted ivory-white, as is the raised deck around the bridge and funnel housing. The main armament consists of four sets of twin barrelled guns with armour plated shields, and a single barrelled version: all are painted light grey. Just aft of the bridge is a truncated mast, a pair of truncated funnels and a raised framework of skits for storing boats, all of which are painted a light grey. There are other fixtures on the main deck including two capstans, mooring bollards and various shaped deck hatches. The model is mounted on a wooden backboard painted creamy white and edged in stained mahogany. Backboard inscribed 'King Edward VII' however this was a previous class of 8 ships which were not as heavily armed.
