Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull model of the 'Scaleby Castle' (1798), an East Indiaman cargo vessel, built in 'bread and butter' fashion, which has been gauged out internally, producing a wooden shell of about â”œÃ²_ inch in thickness. Model is decked and partially equipped and includes the wheel, hatch gratings and three stump masts as would have been used when launched from the builders yard. The stern is inscribed 'Scaleby Castle of London' and at the bow is a carved wooden figurehead finished in the traditional colour of white. The plain appearance and lack of detail suggests that the model was made to illustrate the shape of the hull, which is almost square in the midship section.
