Warship (1725); Third rate; 70 guns

Scale: 1:48. A full hull model of a 70-gun, two-decker ship of the line (circa 1725). The model is decked.

Fourteen ships of this type were built under the Establishment of 1719, including the ‘Kent’ (SLR0421). They, and the later ‘74s’ that replaced them, formed the backbone of the line in fleet actions. Their dimensions were typically about 151 by 41½ feet, and they weighed 1128 tons burden. They had a complement of 480 men. They carried twenty-six 24-pound guns on their gun decks, twenty-six 12-pounders and four 6-pounders on their upper decks, and fourteen 6-pounders on their quarterdecks.
