'Royal William', figurehead detail by unknown zoom

'Royal William', figurehead detail

Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull model of the 'Royal William' (1719), a 100-gun three-decker ship of the line, built in the Georgian style. The model is decked and equipped and has been made to split along the main wales, revealing the interior layout and construction. This model generally shows the 'Royal William' as built, although the side gangways in the waist linking the quarterdeck to the forecastle, were generally introduced in 1745. The carved and painted decoration on the model, especially the figurehead, which represents Achilles dragging the body of Hector round Troy by the heels, is of high quality. On the taffrail, situated above the open stern galleries, is the bust of William III supported by a variety of figures from ancient mythology as well as a wealth of foliage and putti. William's monogram 'WR' has been incorporated into balustrade on the open gallery of the grand cabin below.
