'Ipswich' (Br, 1730)
Scale: 1:60. A contemporary full hull model of the 'Ipswich' (1730), a 70-gun two-decker ship of the line, built plank on solid core in the Georgian style. Model is decked, fully planked, equipped and rigged. It is complete with its original rigging and is flying a red ensign and broad pennant; the whole model is mounted on an original baseboard.
The 'Ipswich' was a rebuild at Portsmouth from a previous ship of the same name. Measuring 151 along the gun deck by 42 feet in the beam, it had a tonnage of 1142. It spent most of its active career in the Mediterranean and the West Indies and was later re-rated as a 64-gun ship. During this period, the British 70-gun ships saw wide service but were soon outclassed by the French seventy-fours, which were developed in the late 1730s. The 'Ipswich' was eventually taken to pieces in 1764.
