This fully-rigged, and superbly detailed, model of a ship from the early 1740s illustrates the basic ambiguity of the 50-gun Fourth Rate. With two tiers of ordnance and a full range of upper stern lights, the design exhibits the layout and main features of a ship of the line; yet the fittings expose her relatively small size - no greater in length and tonnage than the frigates of forty years later. Small size meant small building and running costs, which were particular attractions to economy-minded Admiralties trying to maximise the number of units in the fleet, while in terms of role they could equally function as heavy cruiser or emergency addition to the battlefleet. Like many a ‘jack of all trades’ they were possibly 'master of none’, but their flexibility ensured that substantial numbers were constructed down to the 1770s, and examples were being added to the Navy List almost to the end of the Napoleonic War.
