HMS 'Spartan' (1841)
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary half block model of HMS 'Spartan' (1841), a 26-gun 6th rate sloop. The hull is carved form a solid block of wood (?) and is painted a metallic bronze colour below the main wales separated by a thin white line along the waterline. The topsides are painted black, with the main gundeck highlighted by a creamy white horizontal band. Along the upperworks the gunports are let into the hull and painted black together with three sets of channels rigged with chain plates and deadeyes. The bow is fitted with head rails just aft of a half-length figurehead with a stump bowsprit above and a cathead on the quarter. There are three stump masts (one missing) on a flush upper deck which are painted a creamy white colour. At the stern are the carved galleries, painted black, below which is a rudder fitted to an angled sternpost. The whole model is mounted on a rectangular wooden backboard which is painted a creamy white and surrounded by a stained moulded edging. It is inscribed '"HMS Spartan" Tons 918 built 1841'.
