Ship of 60 guns, port 3/4 bow
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull block model of a 60-gun two-decker ship of the line (circa 1715), built in 'bread and butter' fashion. The label reads 'P/ 21a/ Ship of 60 guns, about 1715(?). Catalogued (1923) under No.17 as Intrepid ex Serieux, 64, a French prize of 1747.' These detailed but robust block models were probably built to accompany the ships plans, illustrating the proposals put forward by all the Master Shipwrights of the Royal Dockyards. They were easier and quicker to build and more likely to survive the rough ride to London, either by road or sea, where they were used for discussion by the Navy Board who were responsible for the commissioning of new ships.
