In 1845, along with Agincourt, Cruizer, Vestal, and Vixen, Daedalus destroyed the pirate stronghold of Serriff Osman in the Sungei Malloodoo. In 1851 Daedalus was converted into a training ship and served as such until 1911 when she was broken up at Bristol. This model shows her in her original state as a fifth rate frigate. — More Information
