HMS 'Rose' (1821)
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary half block model of the 'Rose' (1821), an 18-gun sixth rate sloop. The hull is carved from a solid block of wood (?) and is painted a metallic bronze colour below the waterline, with black topsides to the level of the-gunwale. The-gundeck is highlighted by a horizontal band with ten-gunports let in and painted black. Between the top of the bulwarks and the-gunports are three sets of channels rigged with chainplates and deadeyes. The bow is complete with headrails just aft of the figurehead (missing), and a cathead. There is a quarter gallery together with a flat and angled stern gallery, all of which above a sternpost fitted with a rudder complete with gudgeons and pintles. The whole model is mounted on a rectangular wooden backboard which is painted a creamy white colour surrounded by a stained moulded edging on which is inscribed "(1)" amidships under the keel.
