The ships of the Honourable East India Company of Britain

 
An East Indiaman was a ship operating under charter or license of the East India Companies of the major European trading powers in the 17th to 19th century. The ships carried strong armament and were designed and painted to resemble a ship of war. An attacker could not be sure whether gunports were real or mere dummies. In the battle of Pulo Aula in 1804 an English merchant ships convoy even succeeded in scaring off a flotilla of French Navy ships.

 
The East Indiaman model, photos, description and dimensions

 

This model of the East Indiaman is a very beautiful work, a true masterpiece, especially in detailing the rigging. It was built in the 1970s and has been restored with love and great care. The ship model is 1 : 60 scale. Length is 92 cm, width 39 cm, height 85 cm.

The ship model was built without sails to allow for a better view on the very detailed, impressive rigging.

  

The ship can be taken out of the stand, i.e. for transport.

 
Please take your time to have a good look at the set of photos. There are several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions and several closer views of hull, deck and rigging.
