These were specialist vessels whose main armament was two mortars, usually 10ins and 13ins, which were used to lob shells into enemy fortifications. This model is of the Hecla, a converted merchantman, which by the use of removable bulwarks, was the first 'bomb vessel' to be able to fire its mortars horizontally as a broadside.
Set sails are photo etched brass except where stated. Furled are white metal..
