Ship of 90-guns
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull model of a 90-gun three-decker (circa 1675), built plank on frame in the Navy Board style. The model is partially decked, equipped and rigged.
The model is probably a preliminary design for the 90-gun second-rates of the 1677 'thirty ships' building programme, and has a gun deck length of 158 feet by 42 feet in the beam and a burden tonnage of approximately 1200. It was restored and re-rigged in 1929, with the lower masts and fighting tops thought to be original. The model illustrates very well the amount of carved decoration these ships carried for this period, in particular the wreathed gunports, a feature that was discontinued in the early 18th century on the grounds of cost.
