Navy board model of warship 'St Michael (1669)', 98 guns, 1st rate

Scale: 1:48. A contemporary skeleton model of 'St Michael' (1669), a 90-98 gun three-decker ship of the line, built in the Navy Board style. The model is partially decked, equipped and rigged. It was re-rigged circa 1930. On the stern is the Royal Coat of Arms, carved by Robert Spence 1931-1932, together with the carved initials 'GR'. This represents the earliest English ship whose model can be identified with any certainty and is depicted as re-classified to a first rate 98-gun ship circa 1672, after her first building.

There are several drawings by the Dutch artist Willem van de Velde of the stern and figurehead decoration which corroborate the detail depicted on the model. The 'St Michael' took part in the battles of Solebay in 1672 and Barfleur in 1692 before being rebuilt in 1706 and renamed 'Marlborough'.
