Hello Les here. Current cobuild is Darwins ship HMS Beagle. Did this ship have a carved beagle at the front of the bus or not. Any help would be great.

Marquardt has a dog sculpture and a scroll as options. I'm pretty sure it would take a wayback machine to know for sure.

Unless new data becomes available, which ever option you choose can not be authoritatively refuted.

I typically see some sort of Beagle-esque design on models that people have built. You can also inquire with those who are building the replica in Chile and see what they plan on doing. This goes for coloring as well most of these images are taken from google,  There is no specific answer so you may as well get creative while also working with what was fashionable for the time.

Also you should pick up the Anatomy of the ship book for Beagle and that has very accurate detailing. You may also want to research Cherokee class brig sloops there were tons of them and a few of them might have had images of them recorded. Like for example this is the figurehead of the HMS Forrester while not a beagle shows the size and placement of the bust  :)
