HMS 'Bonetta' (1836)
Scale: 1:48. Half block model of HMS 'Bonetta' (1836), a 3-gun brigantine. 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. There are six gunports on the upper portion of the hull, complete with hinged portlids. The model is complete with a rounded stern and quarter gallery, a rudder fitted to the stern with gudgeons and pintles, a cathead and a trailboard running into the figurehead (missing). The hull is also fitted with a pair 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 creamy-white. The model is mounted on a wooden backboard painted creamy-white with a mahogany stained edging. The backboard is inscribed 'HMS Bonetta Tons 319 Built 1836'.
The model has been recently restored with the additions and repairs finished in a natural wood colour.
