|Description: Sectional model of the longitudinal frame of the 'Warrior' (1860), a 40-gun iron sailing screw vessel. This cutaway model depicts a half midship section of the vessel, with decking. The base is inscribed 'Section of H.M. Iron cased frigate. Warrior. Showing method of construction. Scale. - 1/2 inch to a foot'. The construction of the 'Warrior' marked a revolution in the design of warships. At the time of her launch in 1860 she was by far the longest and largest warship ever built.|
