This limited edition model of the famous naval warship the HMS Surprise holds a great deal of detail and accents a nautical home perfectly. Based on the original 18th-century British Admiralty drawings, the vessel was sold to 20th Century Fox, and shortly after the acquisition, and was featured in the film Master and Commander. She still sails several times a year and now resides at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Purchase this model today if you are looking for something that will fit on a desk or mantle, and still hold many details for a model this size.
