Object ID SLR0713
Description Scale: 1:24. A contemporary full hull model of a 10-gun brig (circa 1825) built plank on frame and fully rigged with original masts, spars and modern rigging. This model probably represents one of the large ‘Cadmus’-class of brigs built from 1808 onwards, the last being ‘Termagant’ of 1837. This highly detailed model is complete with a variety of fittings such as a capstan rigged with bars, deck hatches and gratings, the large riding bitts in the bow and a finely carved wooden figurehead on the beakhead. Notice also the large square gunports fitted with lids that are hinged in the middle for the use of the short but powerful carronades.
Date made circa 1825
