Description Scale: 1:16. A full hull model of the yacht Outlook (1903) made entirely in wood with metal fittings and painted in realistic colours. The flat, raft-like hull is painted brick red below the waterline, green above and the deck is off-white. The prominent centreboard extends both above and below the hull and is painted brick red. A low, lattice-like frame is fixed to the centreline of the deck extending almost its entire length. Fittings include a short jib-boom, single mast with two booms and ellipse-shaped rudder. The model is mounted on a pair of very large, turned, brass pillar supports and displayed on a rectangular mahogany baseboard with bevelled edges.
