Sirius Model at the Powerhouse Museum

Recommended Posts

As the Sirius is now available in kit form and is being built (or planned) by some of our members, I thought these photos may be of interest.


The Ingleton model of the Sirius is in storage at the Powerhouse Museum's storage faciliy at Castle Hill (Sydney).  I was able to visit the storage area this morning and take a few photos.  Some of the photos aren't great as the light was pretty poor and no flash was permitted, but I thought they may be helpful for anyone building or researching the Sirius.


First, some photos of the hull and deck.

Thanks for the pics John.


Anyone who would like to see more of Sirius in very high resolution click on this Link : HMS Sirius - Powerhouse Museum


BTW John - was that model once in the foyer at Old Sydney Town? I remember seeing a couple of excellent (rather large) models there which initially sparked my interest in wooden ship modelling :) . I don't remember which ships they were.

Thank you John - I have no idea what the two ships in the foyer were, just thought it may have been Ingleton's models of Sirius and Supply "on loan".


Demonborger - have a look at this link - there may be hope for a revival of Old Sydney Town yet. I hope so - I'll be one of the first visitors if it goes ahead :) .

There is another large model of the Sirius on display in a case in the foyer of the Commonwealth Dept. Health & Ageing 'Sirius Building' in Woden (suburb of Canberra).

I'll have to remember to get some photos next time I'm over there.
