The 74 gun ship of the line HMS Wellesley of 1815

 

HMS Wellesley was built by the East India Company at Bombay and launched on 24th February 1815 as a 3rd rate 74 gun ship of the line. She was named for the Duke of Wellington.

She saw active service in the Far East on several occasions. She took part in the First Opium War, which gave Britain control of Hong Kong. Afterwards she served mainly as a guard ship and training ship, until in 1940 she was severely damaged by a German air raid and sunk. She was raised in 1948, beached and broken up. Her figurehead was taken to Chatham Dockyard, where it still stands.

The HMS Wellesley model, photos, description and dimensions

 

This model of the 74 gun HMS Wellesley is a masterpiece, a very fine and diligent piece of work, especially in detailing the rigging. Having gun ports closed on starboard allows for a clear showing of the elegant hull lines.

The ship model is 1 : 64 scale. Length is 143 cm, width 53 cm, height 102 cm. It was built to plans of Harold A. Underhill. The ship is fixed to the stand by three screws from below.

The ship model was built with the sails set like the ship being on starboard tack in quartering wind. The fore sail and main sail are clewed up to allow for a better view on the upper deck and the very detailed, impressive rigging. The gun ports on starboard are closed, the port guns are run out.

Have a 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. Click images to enlarge!
