Model of four-masted barque 'Moshulu' (1904)
Scale: 1:48. A full hull exhibition-standard model of the four-masted barque 'Moshulu' (1904), fully rigged including sails stowed on the yards. It is complete with every fitting, both on deck as well as the rigging, and represents the ship in a miniature form.
The model was commissioned for the dual purposes of illustrating the ultimate development of the sailing ship as well as to achieve a very high standard of miniature engineering. The hull is made from a fibreglass shell on which are fitted 720 hull plates, each of which has been embossed with 300 individual simulated rivet heads. The decking has been individually laid and caulked and deckhouses, forecastle and poop are furnished internally. To give a sense of scale, several figures are included both working on deck and aloft.
