HMS Boyne (1810); Warship; 98 guns

Scale: 1:16. A model of the starboard stern of HMS Boyne (1810) as completed, made entirely in wood and painted in realistic colours. The hull is painted black with three broad off-white stripes running just above the three gun decks and ochre highlighting of the stern and quarter decoration. Ten broadside gunports are shown without port lids, the inside faces painted red. One stern gunport is shown beneath the counter. There are three apertures, one in each of the three stern galleries, possibly gunports. Nine stern gallery windows are shown, three on each deck, all with nine lights with painted glazing and frames. Two ornately carved balustrades separate the three galleries. All five decks are shown and all, apart from the orlop deck, have the principle deck beams and knees to support them. Number '6' is inscribed on the stern (now missing).

This is one of a pair of half models which fit together to form a complete stern section.
