HMS 'Queen' (1839)
Scale: Unknown. A half block model of HMS 'Queen' (1839), 2nd rate; 86 guns, shown as a screw ship after its conversion in 1859. The model is made entirely in wood 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 lower gun decks are highlighted by a pair of thick, horizontal bands painted creamy-white and the gunports are finished in light grey edged in red. The upper gunports are cut through the ship's side and shown open. The model is complete with a rounded stern and quarter gallery, a rudder fitted to the sternframe with gudgeons and pintles, a set of drift rails (solid) and a cathead. The figurehead is painted flat in yellow-gold. The hull is also fitted with three sets of channels, one of which are painted black, the other two are finished in natural wood. The decks have been finished just below the level of the bulwarks and painted creamy-white. 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. On lower edge number '11'. The model has been recently restored with the additions and repairs finished in a natural wood colour.
