About this object

Builders model, scale 1:64, uncased, badly damaged by damp and dirt. Rigging and superstructure, incl decks, in very poor condition. Not displayable unless used to show a model in great need of conservation and restoration.
NOTE: 28/05/2014 The model has undergone extensive cleaning, masts and rigging repaired and missing guns replaced. A deliberate choice was made on economic grounds to consolidate the painted surfaces but not restore them. This was always intended to be a sympathetic treatment with minimal intervention.
