Scale: 1:48. A sectional design model of the port side of a steam vessel (circa 1866-1868). The model is made entirely of wood with the main carcass of the hull carved from a solid piece. The exterior of the hull is painted a matt black overall and is complete with a rectangular section running along the length of the hull, from just above the waterline and acts as further support to the hull. The interior of the hull has been painted white and is finished with a yellowy varnish. The model has been fitted out internally with a series of three main decks, complete with deck beams, pillars and hatches and a smaller deck fitted over the propellor shaft in the aft section. Roughly amidships is a sectional model of the engine and crank shaft together with a prop shaft running aft through the dead wood at the stern and fitted with a two bladed propellor. There is also a telescopic funnel, mostly painted black and mounted just above a pair of boilers. At the stern is the aperture for working and then lifting the screw propeller by raising it through the deck trunking. The whole model is mounted on a stained and varnished oak baseboard with a moulded edge, all of which are mounted in a modern hessian covered baseboard and back, which is fitted with a perspex top and sides. 'Sectional model of an ironclad ca.1870. This model illustrates the interior arrangements of a typical ironclad of the early period. The telescopic funnel, the rectangular low pressure boilers, the trunck engines and the lifting screw can all be clearly seen'.
