Revenue cruisers were commissioned by the British Crown to intercept smugglers in British-controlled waters; named as such because they protected the country's revenue. This model represents the revenue cruiser HMS Badger, launched in 1842, as she appeared circa 1844. Modeled by D. Taylor with planked and framed hull, copper-sheathed below the waterline and black main wale and topsides with white strakes, carved polychrome figurehead, stern and quarter lights, planked decks with details including anchors with bound stocks, tiller, belaying rails with pins, deck rings, stove pipe, brass bell, bound masts with yards and booms, standing and running rigging and numerous other details. The cruiser is depicted as cleared for a gale, cannon seized and secured, cannon ports closed, longboat secured on deck, and booms lowered. A figure of a sailor with sea bag is set on the base for interesting visual relation to scale (being 1:48). Mounted on two brass stands, with brass legend, overall measurements – 22" x 23" x 6". Presented in wood and glass case with overall measurements: 28" x 28-1/2" x 10". Commissioned by the noted Laurence Langford Ship Model Gallery, London, circa 1990. JLK
