1st Rate Ship of the Line Gun Deck Diorama

A super scratch built model depicting a fascinating glimpse into a typical gun deck of a Royal Navy Man of War circa 1800. This model is built to exhibition standard and depicts two guns, one run out for action while the other is in the off duty position. Gun crews of the time consisting of 12 men and a boy (the powder monkey!) and when properly trained a crew could reload and fire within 90 seconds. The detail shown in staggering and gives a glimpse of what life must have been like below decks at the time of the Battle of Trafalgar. Modelled in 1/23rd scale, the diorama comes complete in a wooden transit box and measures approx. 10" x 9" (26cm x 23cm)
