L: 55.1 W: 12.6 H: 31.5 Inches. Make a statement of fearsome power with this 55-inch handmade model of the Nemesis. Two-masted and rigged fore-and-after, this model also features paddle wheels connected by a bridge and a single tall funnel. Detailed features include ornate mounted canons, lifeboats, captain’s wheel, and other finely made miniatures. Hand-painted black and burgundy, this model comes on a wooden stand and with an ornate plaque bearing the name of Nemesis. Nemesis was England’s first ocean-going iron warship. Launched in 1839, the Nemesis was deployed to China where she served during the First Opium War under Captains William Hutcheon Hall and Richard Collinson. Armed with two pivot-mounted 32-pounder and four 6-pounder guns, her shallow draught and watertight bulkheads made her a formidable foe. In later years, Nemesis toured Indonesia and the Philippines where she worked to suppress pirates.
