HMS Diana was designed by Sir John Henslow and built by Randall & Brent of Rotherhithe, one of the largest merchant builders in the country. After eleven months building the hull, Diana was launched on the 3rd of March 1794 and towed to the Royal Dockyard at Deptford for fitting out. This included masts, rigging, anchors, coppering of her bottom, ordnance and stores. On the 12th of June 1794 Diana was ready to receive her full crew and spent the next 6 1/2 weeks working up at the Nore. The total cost of building and fitting out was 23,000.
The Diana kit was designed from original Admiralty plans and contains CNC cut timber throughout. The extensive fittings include brass 18 and 9 pounder cannons; black and natural hemp for rigging and 2,300 scale copper plates. The kit is supplied with full size plans, comprehensive instruction manual and drawings.
