Admiralty models were an English invention of the 17th century, when the British Admiralty required a model as well as the plans of each new type of ship. The characteristic feature of Admiralty models was the underwater hull, which was built as a frame model. The part above the waterline was fully planked – this characteristic feature shows the construction of the hull frames and deck beams along with all supports.
