Warship (circa 1705)
Scale: 1:48. A contemporary full hull model of 60-gun two-decker third rate ship of the line (circa 1705), built plank on frame in the Navy Board style. The model is decked, equipped and mounted on a modern wooden support. A noticeable feature is the rather austere carved decoration brought about by the order of 1703, with the rounded and plainer gunport decoration on the quarterdeck in evidence. The stern galleries are surmounted by a very detailed taffrail, under which is thought to be the royal monogram 'AR', of Queen Anne, and is placed centrally on a shield.
At this scale the model depicts a ship measuring 144 feet along the gun deck by 37 feet in the beam with an approximate tonnage of 910 burden. Its dimensions are very similar to the third rates built to the Establishment of 1706 although the beam is slightly too narrow. The 60-gun third rates lasted well into the late 18th century playing a part in the line of battle.
