Caldercraft HM William Wooden Model Kit
Model Number: 9016
The Caldercraft HM William wooden ship model is an accurate reproduction of the real life ship.
Purchased by the Royal Navy in 1795, William, under the direction of Sir Sidney Smith, was fitted as a hoy rigged boat at Plymouth Yard. As fitted, William was armed with 1x24pdr armaments, 2x12pdr carronades and a compliment of 25 men.
Although capable of sail, with a fore-and-aft style hoy rig, William would have been more commonly rowed. This is further illustrated not only by the evidence of rowlocks and oars but by the way the mast is mounted on a pivot allowing it to be rotated down to deck, extending aft, guided by the fore and aft mast carlings.
Kit includes: Double plank on bulkhead construction in lime and walnut, all decking in high quality maple strip, 1x24pdr cast bronze armaments complete with integral trunnion bar, reinforcing rings, and Kings Monogram, walnut 24pdr armament carriage and rotating platform, 2x12pdr complete with integral trunnion bar, reinforcing rings, sights, touch hole, training handle and brech ring, walnut carriage and sliding bed, equipment including rammers, sponges, ladle and worm, Cast bronze stve and chimney with hatch and hinge detailing, 3cast bronze buckets with individual 'slat' detailing of the planks bound by two iron straps,highly detailed brass etched components, precision CNC cut and profiled walnut and ply components, all required blocks, black & natural hemp to rig the model as shown, high quality birch dowel for the masting, fully detailed actual scale plan sheets and two comprehensive step by step colour instruction manuals including technical drawings and constructional photos of the prototype.
