The clipper-shaped bow is fitted with headrails and a plain beakhead whilst the flush main deck runs the full length of the hull and finishes above a small square stern with a carved quarter gallery and a rudder below. The whole model is mounted on a rectangular wooden backboard painted a creamy white colour and surrounded by a stained wooden moulded edging. There is a small plaque which is inscribed "HMS "Rattler", 5 guns. 888 tons. Built at Sheerness 1843".
