HMS 'Queen' (1839)
Scale 1:48. A contemporary half block model of HMS 'Queen' (1839), a 110-gun, three-decker ship of the line. The hull is carved from a solid block of wood(?) and is painted a metallic bronze colour below the main wales. The topsides are painted black, interspersed by the three gundecks highlighted by creamy white horizontal bands, with three sets of channels rigged with plates and deadeyes located above the upper gundeck and quarter deck. The gunports are let into the hull and painted black and were originally fitted with canon in the firing position but all are now missing. The bow is fitted with head rails just aft of the plain beakhead with a stump bowsprit above. All three decks are flush and fitted with stump masts painted a creamy white colour. The stern is complete with carved galleries, painted black with a rudder below, complete with gudgeons and pintles. The whole model is mounted on a rectangular wooden backboard which is painted a creamy white surrounded by a stained moulded edging on which is inscribed "(12)" amidships under the keel. There is a detached plaque which is inscribed "H M S Queen 110 guns Built at Portsmouth 1839 (205)".
