    This cased 'sailor made' diorama of the Sydney Harbour tug ST ARISTEL was made by Frank Griffith Hine during his time at sea as master of the ship.
    SignificanceThis model is an example of a 'sailor made model' - a simple model using scrap material, often from the ship itself. The model is inaccurate in regards to scale and hull features, however the masts, rigging and deck structures - those features most familiar to the sailor - are good representations of how the ST ARISTEL was fitted out.
