"This model was built by John Boon of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Its size is 100 inches x 31 inches (scale: 1 inch = 1 foot). The model took more than 10,400 hours to build over the course of eight years.

The Bellerophon model is housed in the Naval Museum of Alberta, a component of the Military Museums of Calgary, dedicated to educating the young people of Canada about their military histories…."

Great model

Interesting that Alberta (which has no coastline at all) has a naval museum!
