Model of the fishing smack 'Authentic'
A very accurate full hull model built at a scale of 1:24 and constructed with the plank on frame method. The model is decked, equipped and rigged, with the sails set.
The model was made by J. Hodgson in 1880, who was a young shipwright and able to make detailed measurements of the actual vessel whilst it was in dry-dock at Hull. The quality of his work was recognised when the model was awarded a Gold Medal at the International Fisheries Exhibition held in London in 1883.
