Warship, torpedo-boat destroyer HMS 'Sturgeon' (1894)

Scale: 1:48. A contemporary builder's full hull model of the torpedo-boat destroyer 'HMS Sturgeon' (1894). As is typical with this style of model, a large number of the metal fittings have been gold and silver-plated. This was a deliberate attempt by the commercial shipyards to catch the eye of a potential buyer for the British and foreign navies, when the yards exhibited at the various international trade fairs worldwide. As deck space was at a premium on these fast vessels, it is fitted with only one permanently built whaler rigged to the davits whilst the other two, either side of the funnel forward, were of the folding type invented by the Reverend Berthon. Notice also the position of the steering position, which is mounted almost directly above the twin-screw propellers aft.
